About the Showcasing Talents
Myūzu is a fashion label founded by FAD Academy student, Shagun Chauhan. Chauhan’s designs strive on emphasizing and celebrating Indian craftsmanship, rich hand embroidery and bold colours. It is Chauhan’s evocative and intrepid graphics, as well as their asymmetric imbalances that present Myūzu as an up-and-coming designer.
House of DK

House of DK encompasses the art of storytelling to draw a focus onto the sustainability of fashion, by disrupting traditional textile methods. Kothari’s disruptive streetwear offers a poignant contribution about waste in the fashion industry.
