Hi, I’m Shagun.
“Eyes are the windows to the soul.” The proverbial saying rings true. Eyes give a glimpse of our inner world – our feelings, thoughts, and views of the universe.
My fascination materialized at the National Institute of Fashion Technology in Delhi where I studied the influence of ancient Indian art on culture, textiles, apparel, and fashion. Inspired, I created a line of clothing based on the 2,500-year-old folk art of Madhubani paintings, known for big, bold, beautiful eyes. I fell in love immediately.
The key is to start at the source: female folk artists living in remote Indian villages who create authentic artwork. Stunning, vibrant, mesmerizing – the world needed to see these masterpieces. Naytra Couture transfers exclusive paintings onto 100% pure silk by using the most environmentally friendly techniques possible. Our tunics are handcrafted, each a one-of-a-kind wearable piece of art that is a truly unique fashion statement.
