Zara Umrigar launched in 2011, with it’s focus on intricately hand embroidered pieces and a modern twist on the designer’s love for all things Old Hollywood Glamour. Inspired by the contradiction between a time gone by and the world we live in today, her classic pieces exude grace, beauty and opulence with great attention to detail. While her luxury vintage stores are a reflection of her royal lineage, the designer hopes to create pieces that will remain timeless and ones that can be worn by generations to come.
“Each collection I create is a part of who I am and what I believe in. From outfits depicting endagered parts of our planet and wildlife, to women empowerment.. every piece has a powerful message behind it and is intended to make a woman feel like the best version of herself.”
Discovering her love for Fashion early on, Zara Umrigar would observe her mother, a renowned Indian wear designer, Sabita Dhanrajgir Umrigar at work and was always enamoured by the intricacies that went into making each piece. “Generations of artisans that have worked with my family, are now working with me… and it’s magnificent to be able to carry on that tradition and aid in keeping this highly skilled form of art alive.”
In a few short years, Zara has launched stand alone stores across India, has graced the cover of several fashion magazines and has had her creations adorned by some of the most coveted celebrities in both Hollywood and Bollywood. An already established brand in the global fashion industry, Zara Umrigar continues to grow and make her mark worldwide.
