Vvani by Vani Vats is an Indian ethnic women’s wear label launched in January 2014. The young designer believes, clothing is an essential element in expressing one’s identity, hence she offers fashion that is classic, eternal and distinctive. The label is a depiction of royal Indian handcraft, which she intermingles with archaic Indian embroideries and techniques in unconventional designs.
Moavi draws its roots from old Indian textiles in an attempt to reinvigorate traditional weaves and give them their much-deserved limelight in today’s world of fashion. The brand is working towards re-introducing weaves that are on the verge of extinction—they are incorporating Muga silk, Pat silk, Eri-silk, Tusser silk, Linen, Mercerized-cotton and real Zari, creating pure magic beyond boundaries.
