Once you create your market, they come to terms with the fact that it works well for others too," clears Nidhi. "Rajesh Pratap is one the best Indian designers with his simplicity, neat and classy designs.He doesn't need a Bollywood star to sell his clothes.
When in fashion business, exclusive is the tag everybody loves to flaunt.So, you have big names in the industry selling exclusivity to those who pay well for it. Not everybody can go to London or Bangkok to shop for that expensive classy dress.And, those who want exclusivity without gong bankrupt, well, we have Nidhi and Divya Gambhir with their label Walnut. And, most of the options provided are too Indianised with embroidery and the bling effect."It is an out an out Western wear collection, not fusion. Our approach is to keep the contemporary elements alive along with the classy look," she adds.Retailing their label through multi-brand store Soh-Koh Clothing Inc-26, the designer duo presented their latest collection with structured dresses, high on texturing, pleating and keeping it simple."Brunch, cocktail evening or office, our dresses for the feminine, stylish and sorted out ladies," says Divya, who has also assisted Varun Bahl.
The two young designers from Delhi debuted this year at Lakme Fashion Week Spring/Summer-2009 at their Gen-Next show and were featured by Vogue as one of the top 10 emerging and talented designers.
"Even at the Gen-Next show, our collection was called Birds, a very English, sophisticated Western wear.
Our collection was called experimental, says Nidhi.
Running their own label for two years now, and assisting Aki Narula before that, the two match in every respect, personal or professional.
"We are twins, so it is obvious that our sensibilities match.
We never create something that even we would not wear. Mumbai is classy, Delhi is bling and if the client is too demanding, you have to be straight." And who is their favourite?
