Karigiri – Where prêt-à-porter meets fine workmanship

One afternoon while on my way to home, I passed this store called ‘Karigiri’. The word Karigiri is a hindi word which translates into ‘workmanship’ in english. The name and the window display intrigued me step inside and see what the store has to offer.

After browsing every piece in the store, I instantly knew that I had to introduce them and their unique collection to our readers.

The duo of sisters, namely Nupur and Arpita are the founders and designers of this establishment. Both of them have shared a passion in the field of fashion design since childhood and have graduated from Pearl academy and NIFT.  This mutual interest led them to opening of the store where today, they create the most beautiful hand painted dresses and ethnic wear.

Their design ideology is mostly oriented with hand painted outfits.  Their product range consists of tops, shirts, dresses with embroideries, prints and hand paints. Apart from this, they also have heavy ethnic wear with a touch of their own personal style keeping in sync with the on going trends.  The colours for this season are shades of mustard, yellow and teal green. For their latest collection, they are focussing on cape styled garments.

The terrific part about this store is that any garment can be customised in any size! Karigiri is a hidden gem for the fashionistas in north part of Delhi who appreciate good workmanship and rich fabrics.

What the beetles about this outfit : We love how this outfit can look both plain and colourful at the same time. Also, how the hand painted face and pom poms beautify and add hue to the ivory chanderi fabric.
