ENSEMBLE, established in 1987 in Mumbai, is the story of the evolution of Indian fashion over the last thirty-five years. A creative idea before its time that decolonized design, revolutionized retail, pioneered professions and galvanized India’s very first fashion community; the institution today has grown to have multiple locations across Mumbai, New Delhi and an e-commerce presence spanning across the world.

As Ensemble embarks on this milestone 35th year, Tina Tahiliani Parikh, CEO Ensemble, is proud to announce a curation of a year- long series of celebrations of Indian fashion, that will feature 12 designers amongst the established as well as new upcoming labels. From Tarun Tahiliani & Payal Khandwala to Jayanti Reddy, Saaksha & Kinni, Kshitij Jalori, Aikeyah and more, each month will bring to us a veritable showcase of unique fashion handwritings from hand woven textiles to uncommon silhouettes & drapes and specialized bespoke prints, all created in collaboration with or especially for Ensemble. The collections will celebrate the combined strengths of each label with Ensemble’s invaluable insights across aesthetics, weaves, cuts, embroideries and design, beginning with a preview for Aikeyah x Ensemble” at Ensemble, New Delhi from 10th February 2022 and online www.ensembleindia.com.

“Celebrating our 35th year is a proud moment for the team at Ensemble.We are kicking it off with a series of exclusive collections which are the result of collaborations between our innovative designers and us. This month we are spotlighting Aikeyah. We love her fresh approach to Indian wear and the way she combines chic draped separates with her (almost) English embroideries to create a signature look. All the pieces in her sets can be worn separately or together, creating a range of Indian and contemporary looks. Post-pandemic, it’s clear to us that this is a very important direction to nurture in our design community,” says Tina. “We started working with ENSEMBLE a couple of years ago and the relationship graph has only looked up for us. We have a great working relationship and enjoy this patronage. Aikeyah’s designs are perennial. Year after year we have successfully built an audience with ENSEMBLE who enjoy handcrafted, deftly made garments. I congratulate ENSEMBLE for achieving a milestone and wish them all the very best for their journey,” saysIsha Dhingra, Founder & Creative Director at Aikeyah.
