Walking out on what is conventionally presumed as a "successful" career path in India - engineering, Rachna followed her heart and went ahead to pursue her passion in accessory design and graduated from Cordwainer's - London College of Fashion. She now has her own label which will be stocked by the likes of 'Paul Smith' in London and Paris very soon!
|Love the quote by Buddha on this tote|
Fascinated by the possibilities of wood, Rachana designs clutch bags made of teak juxtaposed with softer elements such as silk and leather. The bright colors pop out beautifully on the earthy wooden base, don't you think? Also, the co-existence of soft and strong together, truly seems to represent the spirit of the contemporary woman, such a beautiful concept! Using a combination of laser-technology and artisan hand-crafting, her initial designs interpret the most lovely Indian symbols - lotus and peacock. For the rest she draws inspiration from her cultural roots, architecture, travel, indigenous art forms from around the world.
Quite enchanting product photography too you will agree! :)
Below is an extension to Rachna Reddy's signature line of wood clutches inspired from everything that is bright and illuminating. Titled as Beam this line of clutches are adorned by Studs, crystals, bright highlights and lots of bling.
The Global Gypsy again is another exquisite line based on nomadic inspirations, exploring stunning artistry of various ancient cultures and free spirit symbols such as butterflies.
