Luxurious Artisanship

A devotion to artisanship and a rigorous foundation in fashion design, jewelry design, accessory design, and embroidery design inspire all aspects of Misha Kaura designs.  Lavish materials are blended with subtle detailing, offering inspiring finishes that remain in style long after fads have faded.  Avoiding trends and focusing on timelessness allows for the label to pursue exquisite finishes on a sculptural and geometric foundation. An artist and an artisan, Misha trained in glass and clay sculpture before pursuing fashion design.
