Nikasha Tawadey launches new clothing line Nika
Designer Nikasha Tawadey has launched a new clothing line named ‘Nika’ at Design Orchard in Singapore, and plans to retail online to serve the Indian market from March.
Tawadey’s new womenswear line features relaxed fit separates including tops, trousers, tunics, and dresses in white, handwoven textiles with pops of colour such as red tassels. Whimsical details such as embroidered animals add a playful element to the range of fusion wear, which is designed to be suitable for everything from working from home to attending events.
“I was at a place in my life where a fundamental question was asked of me: Where do you see yourself at the end of your life—what are you doing about it now,” Tawadey told Vogue India, about the inspiration behind her new label.
“I understood that my most important need was to feel empowered. And my passion is making beautiful clothes. The relevance of these two wasn’t enough so I dug a little deeper and figured that the only way I can empower myself is when I empower others. And more than anything else, I believe that women have to support each other.”
Tawadey has begun working with women oriented crafts clusters including weavers and social enterprises for her brand. Nika has already begun working with an organisation for blind women and is contributing to training the members to make accessories . This is part of the brand’s steps towards creating a circular economy, according to Tawadey.
