OSHADI marries traditional Indian heritage with the modernity of editorial fashion. Founded by 22-year-old, Nishanth Chopra and designed in collaboration with Richard Malone, who graduated from Central Saint Martin’s and worked for Versace & LVMH, it’s no wonder the clothes have such a high-end flavour. OSHADI’s definitive silhouettes weave the complementary indigo hues, coral pinks and crisp quality of ethnic apparel into statement individual pieces and stunning co-ords. Referencing the likes of Le Corbusier, 90s designers such as Jil Sander and Helmut Lang, as well as 20th century linen workwear, this really is a collection of all the good things.
OSHADI is faithful to the ‘essence of nature’, which the name means in Sanskrit. Chopra’s clothes are made using exclusively natural dyes and sustainable materials like organic cotton, peace silk and linen, consciously chosen for their environmental kindness and efficacy. Apparel is handspun by artisans, to foster equality, growth, and empowerment in the marginalised community. It’s no surprise that OSHADI has been awarded the Positive Luxury seal, and was recently praised in Forbes Magazine for their unique vision. OSHADI’s vibrant approach makes a clear departure from the harmful practices of the fashion industry, and looks towards a sustainable future that looks better than ever before.
