SHOP ARPITA MEHTA AT ENSEMBLE
Savvy and trendy, Arpita Mehta, who launched her label in 2009, is considered to be one of the new age forces of fashion in the industry today. After graduating from SNDT University in Mumbai, she completed her apprenticeship with fashion legend Manish Malhotra. Post her experience and realising her love for fashion, she launched her namesake label bringing a blend of modern ethnic and contemporary designs to the fashion scene in India.
The label was quick to understand its signature aesthetic with hand embroidered mirror work in a range of fusion cuts and mesmerising colours, leading to her designs now being recognised across the globe. She became a swift favourite to dress clients, influencers and celebrities alike for events like mehendi ceremonies, a sangeet and even weddings. The appreciation of this seamless blend of traditional with contemporary, using mirror work as the embroidery base for her unique styles, brought the label into a momentum. This has helped create the strong sense of individuality the label has today. Women recognise the way the designs beautifully enhance feminine silhouettes with its modern cuts.
It wasn’t long before Arpita Mehta became part of Ensemble’s growing list of designer names. “I always wanted to be a part of Ensemble’s family, and when I got a chance to do that it was almost like a dream come true. It’s been a few years now that I’ve been working with Ensemble, Tina and the entire team are perfectionists! They make the entire experience of working together so effortless. I’m thankful to be a part of Ensemble and can’t wait to grow together,” she says of the collaboration.” As we continue to grow, Arpita Mehta’s collection is now also available to shop online right here, at ensembleindia.com.
Ensemble's merchandising team works closely with Arpita Mehta to ensure the most exclusive, trending and latest collections at the best prices, both for the online shop and our 5 stores across Mumbai and Delhi.
SHOP ARPITA MEHTA COLLECTIONS: FROM HER SIGNATURE RUFFLE SARI TO ECLECTIC FUSION INDIAN WEAR
Arpita Mehta’s runway debut at Lakme Fashion Week was in 2013, showcasing her very first collection ‘Violet Garden’ which featured unique prints with intricate mirror work detailing, that has gone on to become the brands identity.
The fashion forward approach of the label showcases a perfect mix of traditional with contemporary designs. The core essence of the brand lies in its ability to take ethnic wear and make it something that a modern day woman can relate to. The ethnic and ethereal fusion ensembles by the namesake label continue to focus on the basis of embroidered mirror work enhanced and highlighted further by different embroideries such as mukaish, gota, badla and zardozi. She has also successfully experimented with different prints such as tribal prints, floral prints, paisley prints and bandhani fabrics, with a new print being introduced on a seasonal basis as part of the collection. She primarily uses georgette, chiffon, silk and cotton fabrics that drape beautifully on women’s bodies. Intricate embroideries, fun colours, unique prints and contemporary cuts - Arpita Mehta creates the perfect formula for fusion pieces that have a modern vibe.
With its understated glamour and dramatic drapes, the label manages to make the wearer feel comfortable yet confident and stylish. It is no surprise that Arpita Mehta has managed to make an international impact with NRI’s taking the label global due to its easy-to-wear and easy-to-carry collections to destination weddings.

Her designs have been spotted on Bollywood actresses and models such as Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Madhuri Dixit, Karisma Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Esha Gupta, Shilpa Shetty, Neha Dhupia, Jacqueline Fernandez and Shraddha Kapoor, to name just a few. Her modern designs and fun silhouettes have also become a quick favourite for the new generation, having recently been worn by celebrities such as Alia Bhatt, Ananya Pandey, Kriti Sanon, Tara Sutaria, Janhvi & Khushi Kapoor, Sarah Ali Khan and Athiya Shetty.
The eponymous label’s fashion forward approach with its signature style of hand embroidered mirror work comes in a range of silhouettes such as her classic ruffled sari, sharara sets , kurta sets, embellished lehengas, ghararas, palazzo sets, cape sets, anarkalis, jacket lehengas, dhotis and more. Part of her identity is also the bold and eclectic colour palette she uses such as neon, blue, fuchsia, yellow, red, ivory, green, orange and pink.
