Emerg­ing de­signer-sis­ters Tina and Nikita Su­trad­har from Mum­bai are quickly ris­ing on the global fash­ion cir­cuit. One of the fi­nal­ists for the LVMH Prize in their very first year in the busi­ness (their fel­low com­peti­tors were Si­mone Rocha, Crea­tures of the Wind, Mead­ham Kir­choff, Stella Jean, and Suno, a mong o t h e r s ) , t heir de­signs are fu­tur­is­tic, and fea­ture clean lines that burst into max­i­mal looks with colour­block­ing, stripes, and in­ter­est­ing con­struc­tion. Their sense of style is an amal­ga­ma­tion of the duo’s aes­thet­ics. And even though they are only two col­lec­tions old, ac­co­lades have been c o ming in fast and thick. The sis­ters have re­ceived the Fash­ion In­no­va­tion Award at Lon­don Col­lege of Fash­ion (July 2013) and the ISKO Denim Dif­fu­sion Award (July 2013); they were also semi-fi­nal­ists of the H&M De­sign Awards 2014. And if that’s not im­pres­sive enough, both have de­grees and diplo­mas in busi­ness, fash­ion mar­ket­ing, fash­ion de­sign, pat­tern cut­ting, and, more re­cently, a BA (Hons) in Wom­enswear from the Lon­don Col­lege of Fash­ion un­der their belts. And what does Mi­u­niku mean? It’s a com­bi­na­tion of the sis­ters’ nick­names—Tina ‘Miu’ and Nikita ‘Niku’.
