THE DESIGNER

Misha Kaura is an award-winning designer who creates made-to-measure and ready-to-wear apparel and accessories for the world's most distinguished women.  Hailing from an Indian founding family—the Kauravas—and educated at the finest schools in Milan, London, New York, and Atlanta, she is a dual trained scientist and fashion designer.  Raised in the US, Misha regularly holidayed in Switzerland and India as a girl; her cosmopolitan upbringing deeply rooted in her family’s historical legacy has shaped her East-Meets-West design aesthetic. Her haute couture work experience in London and Paris helped her learn more about the power of the female form. Dividing her time between Paris and New York, Misha strives to make pieces that appreciate in value over time, proving that fashion is more than art: it is also the noblest of all the sciences. Empowering women with luxurious products that highlight their inner beauty and accentuate their outer beauty is Misha’s greatest joy in life.

THE LABEL

MISHA KAURA is a made-to-measure and ready-to-wear brand for women offering apparel, accessories, fashion jewelry, and fine jewelry.  Founded in 2017 by Misha Kaura, the label plays with American and Indian styles of feminine and romantic dress by taking elements symbolic of restraint and repression—corsets, bustiers, saris, long sleeves, turtlenecks—and giving them a modern inflection.  The label is thoroughly grounded in an exotic and elegant brand DNA, drawing upon inspiration from South Asia’s greatest artists, Mughal architecture, and the world’s greatest floral gardens. By retooling historical looks and creating new modern looks for both Western and Eastern clientele, MISHA KAURA explores how to extract the ethereal aspects of those styles while rejecting antiquated notions of womanhood.  The label is beloved by the world’s most stylish women of substance, ranging from political wives to politicians, business wives to businesswomen, and socialites to celebrities. Yelle, a French pop star, Kajol, a major Bollywood actress, Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund, and Jaya Bachchan, a Bollywood actress turned Indian Member of Parliament, are fans of the label. British and American actresses are also supporters of the label and have worn made to measure dresses at events and on the red carpet. Since 2017, stylists have consistently stated that they love dressing their clients in MISHA KAURA.
