N&S GAIA is a contemporary womenswear label originating from New Delhi that is rich in unique design and fabric techniques, founded by designer, Sidharth Sinha in 2013.
The brand is a big advocate of mindful production and all things upcycling. The importance of this factor is reflected in the naming pillars, the ‘N’ and ‘S’ in N&S GAIA standing for Nature and Sustainability. N&S GAIA’s approach is “less is more”. Through this ethical mind set, N&S GAIA has become the pioneer of sustainability in Indian fashion.
N&S GAIA will be returning to London Fashion Week for the third time to present the SS18 collection. Following on from the success of SS17 and AW17 collection, which gained recognition by top tier publications such as VOGUE.CO.UK, Grazia, ELLE and HUNGER.
N&S Gaia will be carrying forward it’s signature style of colourful flowing silks punctuated by wide- legs, exaggerated ruffles, sweeping hems and bold 3D embroidery. The brand sits at the forefront of technologic fabric techniques; with contributing to the successful rebirth and modernisation of Dakmanda – a hand-woven embroidery technique of the Garo tribe in North East India.
Creating a subtle sense of a day dream with an innate colourful nature, the SS18 collection will revolve around the transformation of existence surrounding Mother Earth. The collection paints the story of how nature starts with almost nothing – just a molecule; where us as humanity and as souls create our own world of existence.
The shapes will be fluid with constructed drapes offset by elements such as wide flairs, pleating and volumised sleeves. Hand woven detailing will sit alongside Bugle beads embroidery.
