Up and Coming Designers - Bhavna Rishi

If you followed London Fashion Week this year you may have spotted the collection by Bhavna Rishi which was part of the Fashion Diversity show (which as the name suggests aims to show diversity on the catwalks at London Fashion Week). Her collection is composed of scarves, kaftans and tunic dresses all made with organic silks.

You can view a video of her catwalk show here.

I got in touch with Bhavna to find out a bit more about her inspirations and her background!

Originally from India, Bhavna came to realise her passion for design after she had married and started her family. She gave up her job to pursure this dream and started off in fashion by designing scarves.
As her scarves grew in popularity she started to experiment and branch out more into different fabrics and textures. She launched her own label this year.

She takes her inspiration from influences when she was growing up - embroideries, colours and at the same time she is well influenced by the women she meets. "Their feedback and opinions are priceless!"

You can find her collection in a number of boutiques in the London area, but she also takes enquiries via her website -
