Simrat D’Mello is a forager of dreams. She picks up the bits and pieces the world leaves behind in its haste, and weaves them together to reveal images we have all conjured in our sleep. She has done her graduation in fashion designing from NIFT, Delhi and has also persuaded Jewellery Manufacturing Course from IIGJ, Mumbai.
She started her own label ‘Chiria’ in 2012. Using animal bones, brass pipes, fabric, glass, spikes, jute, copper and a million other things, the brand creates dreamscapes that take you on journeys across lost kingdoms, forbidden valleys and virgin lagoons. Each single-edition neckpiece has a Bohemian spirit that is inimitable and priceless. Each piece is soft, sensual yet bold glittering in its very own uniqueness.
She has showcased her collection at prestigious platforms like Lakme Fashion Week and many other exhibitions in India. Her designs have been graced by many celebrities including Tisca Chopra, Priyanka Bose and Mahnaz Damania to name a few.
Simrat’s designs are currently available at The YOGA House, Loose Ends Store, Creo, OMO and Parvati Villa in Mumbai, Paper Boat Collective, Flame at Thalasaa, OMO and Syne in Goa, The Chalk Boutique in Bengaluru and Dhora in Jaipur.
