The Gaultier Of The East

When BBC came to India to study new faces in the Indian fashion industry, there was only one fashion designer that caught their interest. Their study on Indian fashion was based on this designer alone and they were so impressed by her talent that they named her “The Gaultier of the East”. We’re talking about none other than Rina Dhaka, who was also a mentor and advisor for the Myntra Fashion Incubator Program, a member of FDCI and now part of the Make In India initiative.

Coming from a conservative family did not stop Rina from dreaming about a career in fashion and she soon became known for her innovative designs that dressed women to look modern and confident. Clothing 60-year olds with as much élan as 20-somethings, she is known for her themed collections.

Rina Dhaka has been in the fashion industry for over two decades and has showcased her work at The Louvre Paris and is aptly known as the “Oomph of Fashion”, as well as won numerous awards over the years, such as the Best Designer Award in Miami Fashion Week in 2004.

A fellow member of the Fashion Design Council of India, Rina contributed to the Make in India project called “Woven Wonders of Varanasi” in September 2015 by showcasing Benarasi weaves at the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum in Mumbai.

As a mentor and advisor for the Myntra Fashion Incubator, she passed on her experience and expertise to the budding designers who were part of this programme. Check out Rina’s thoughts on her collection and what she has to say about Myntra during the Fashion Weekend:
