With its breezy and stylish silhouettes and quirky prints, the label aims to cater to the needs of the new age Indian woman
Kinni studied fashion at NIFT and then went on to design embroidery swatches for various international fashion houses such as Balmain, Elie Saab and Armani for 8 years. On the other hand, Saaksha was a lawyer by profession and made a bold switch in her career to fashion. Saaksha & Kinni is a label of today, the brand is in sync with the times, the pieces both beautifully and playfully represent the best of India’s heritage. As quoted in an interview with Brown Girl Magazine – “We want to make a statement globally by celebrating Indian prints and colors in a modern way that is accessible to women across the globe.”
Along their journey the duo has experienced several notable moments, from debuting their collection at Lakme Fashion week in 2016, to winning in the Indie category of Grazia Young Fashion Awards in April 2019. While their clothes are aesthetically modern and contemporary, they have been fashioned using traditional techniques and craftsmanship from around the country. Saaksha & Kinni is known for it play with drapes, micro pleats, prints, ikats and embroideries to create some stunning wardrobe separates
Ensemble's merchandising team works closely with SAAKSHA & KINNI 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.

In an interview with The Hans, they were quoted “Together we bring in a lot of layering and masculinity into our collections. We are not overly sexy in our dressing and this reflects in the brand. The one distinct difference between our personal dressing and designing is the use of colour! Though we may not experiment with it in our day to day choices, we certainly love to go bold with colour in our collections."
