Misha Kaura makes women look fabulous.

THE DESIGNER

Misha Kaura, PhD is an award-winning French designer who creates luxurious apparel, fine jewelry, and accessories for women and girls who know their worth.  Her design aesthetic is informed by her unique upbringing at the intersection of colour, country, and culture and her love of fashion has been evident since winning Debutante of the Year in Vienna. Though born in the United States, she was educated at a boarding school in England for her sixth form A Levels, and completed rigorous embroidery study in England, France, and India prior to starting her undergraduate degrees in the United States, where she earned a summa cum laude mark on her senior thesis. After one term at a top medical school, she withdrew to pursue a law degree and a PhD in England. While overseas, she spent her days off interning at Alexander McQueen and then apprenticing at Christian Dior Couture where she refined her design skill, aesthetic, and embroidery vision. This gave her the confidence to pursue her dream by enrolling in formal design study in the full spectrum of sculpture, fine arts, fashion, textile, embroidery, handbags, and fine jewelry, taking her practical experience to the academic level.

Misha’s primary objective is to level the playing field for over-35 year old women via timeless design, which will strengthen marriages, families, communities, and the world. She strives to translate her artistic creativity into commercial and cultural relevance by focusing on permanent designs that appreciate in value over time. In order to best serve clients and to protect their privacy, the MISHA KAURA CLUB is an invite-only, exclusive shopping experience for grand dames who are feminine leaders in society. Select options for girls ages 2 to 10 are on offer.

Misha is the host of the “Passion for Fashion” with Misha Kaura podcast. She is also releasing an e-book and a short Udemy course titled “The Science of Colour” in May 2019. At the end of the summer, she launches television show Misha Kaura: The Label on Hulu, Amazon Prime, and iTunes. She is also giving her second TEDx talk in July, writing more e-books, and publishing papers in academic fashion journals based largely on her PhD work. Misha was also selected to be a part-time Assistant Professor, a role she is taking on in Fall 2019. Misha aims to help the general public see the intellectual side of fashion and to help women look and feel their best using novel visual techniques.

As an adult, before starting university, Misha trained at Ecole Lesage, Hand and Lock, and the Royal School of Needlework, standing out for her efficiency, precision, accuracy, and dexterity on the tambour.
