SHOP SUKRITI & AAKRITI AT ENSEMBLE ONLINE
The sought after sister act – Sukriti & Aakriti, began their design journey at NIFT Delhi, followed by another degree at Istituto Marangoni, Milan. Sukriti went on to be a stylist and works closely with Anaita Shroff Adajania as part of Style Cell, while Aakriti on the other hand launched an Indian beachwear and swimwear brand by the name of Flirtatious. Soon enough, the duo decided to come together and launch a line of eclectic designs that suited the sensibilities of the new age woman.
In an interview with the Hindu, the sisters were quoted “Being sisters we come from a very similar design aesthetic and influences, thus for us to do team work is effortless. However, Aakriti definitely has a stronger hold on the social media and production responsibility of the brand. And designing is team-work”. The brand takes inspiration from the world wanderers and translates that into boho chic styles with a unique blend of traditionalism and practicality.
Their line is effused with this playfulness and ease that has a wide ranging appeal. A favourite of celebrities and destination wedding goers, Sukriti and Aakriti have beautifully created a unique niche for their designs. Specifically focussing on the cotton sharara – with which they managed to spurn a trend that still stands strong.
Ensemble's merchandising team works with Sukriti & Aakriti and their team to ensure the most exclusive and premium latest collections at the best prices, both for the online shop and our 5 stores across Mumbai and Delhi.

Sukriti and Aakriti’s design philosophy centers around breezy bohemian. Right from pop colours like yellow, blue and red to dreamy pastels like ecru and pink, they always manage to create eye catching designs. Easily recognizable by their trademark gota work, scalloped edges, bell sleeves, strappy blouses and sharara pants – their young brand has etched a place for itself when it comes to traditional attire with a contemporary twist.
They specialise in gota work- an indian embroidery originated in Rajasthan that uses the applique technique to sew down zari ribbons on a fabric, which in the case of Sukriti and Aakriti is usually Organic cotton made with milk and soya bean.This combination is perfect for the Indian Summer as they are light, breezy and airy. Other eclectic elements frequently spotted in their collections are self-textured fabrics, tassels, mixed prints, ruffles and frills that are equal parts bohemian and feminine.
They also dabble in intricate floral embroiders, sequins, block prints, mirror work making it a bridal trousseau must-have. As quoted in an interview with the Hindu, “We believe in relaxed fits and wearable silhouettes and fabric thus these styles are a true depiction of runway to reality. It’s not just a design idea but the point is to bring comfort to the runway which people can wear in their daily lives.”
Sukriti & Aakriti’s playful kurta sets have been a festival favourite, while their lighter lehengas are every bridesmaid's dream, their famous sharara sets with gota dupattas are a perfect pick for friends and families attending a mehendi/sangeet.
A Bollywood A-lister favourite, their designs are frequently spotted on Kareena Kapoor Khan, Shilpa Shetty, Alia Bhatt, Jhanvi Kapoor, Aishwaria Rai, Malaika Arora Khan and Anushka Sharma to name a few
