10 Homegrown Fashion Labels Which Deserve A Spot In Your Closet

We bet you’ll want a piece from each

By Gargi Agrawal  January 22nd, 2021

Chanel tweed coats. Fendi baguette bags. Versace’s iconic prints. Swarovski’s stunning studs. We won’t deny the feeling that comes with every luxury purchase. But you would also agree that there’s something unexplainable when it comes to spending on a linen top from a label that’s essentially small, local. We’re talking homegrown fashion labels that not only create silhouettes which do no harm to the planet but are a vision in their own.

From tie-dye maxis, chanderi silk power suits to best-out-of-waste, patchwork jackets, there’s a plethora of silhouettes to take your pick from. Ahead, we’ve lined up our favourite homegrown fashion labels for a wardrobe that’s not only packed with top-notch sartorial sensibility but supports conscious living.
