Miuniku To Show At Paris Fashion Week
Mumbai-based sisters Tina Sutradhar and Nikita Sutradhar of the label Miuniku will be showing at Paris Fashion Week next month. The sisters received a special jury award at the LVMH Young Fashion Designer Prize last May, and were among a selection of other talented designers like winner of the top prize Thomas Tait, as well as Tim Coppens, Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty of Suno, Vika Gazinskaya, and Shayne Gabier of Hood by Air, to name a few. The latter is also set to stage a Paris presentation.
For their award, the Sutradhar sisters took home $131,780. They invested the earnings in their label which is made in India with fabrics sourced there as well as the U.K. and Italy. The burgeoning label, which only has a Fall/Winter 2013 and Fall/Winter 2014 under will already be stocked in Opening Ceremony in New York and Los Angeles and Cement in Japan by mid-October, according to WWD. Not bad, considering the two only just graduated from the London College of Design in June of last year. While 25-year-old Tina Sutradhar and 23-year-old Nikita Sutradhar are running their operation out of Mumbai, they plan to soon extend their base to London, according to their website. Needless to say, keep Miuniku on your radar…
