Aisha Rao is a Hyderabad based design house specializing in luxury prêt and couture. Aisha, the firm’s founder and creative director studied design at Instituto Europeo Di Design, Barcelona and Sewing & Garment Construction at Parsons – The New School, New York and started the label in November 2017. Every season our primary vision lay in creating unique up-cycled luxury occasion wear. Our signature relies solely on appliqué. Bits from tailoring waste come together to create a flamboyant burst of colors. The painstaking appliqué and the laborious overlay of aari, zardozi, and macrame come together to form a unique aesthetic that pushes the envelope and redefines how a traditional lehenga is created and adorned.
