Krishna Mehta’s tryst with designing began in February 1982. Accomplishing the fashion designing masters in 1978 from the Sophia Polytechnic, Mumbai, Bachelor of Commerce degree from the Sydenham Collage of Commerce and Economics, Mumbai in 1981 and an extensive training in weaving at the Weavers Service Centre, Mumbai, Krishna joined the family business of garments exports in 1982. In a span of nine years, She has established herself as one of India’s leading designers. In 1989, Krishna took the fledgling Indian fashion industry by storm with her menswear collection. Her perfectly cut and impeccably finished lines have established her as a respected name in men’s fashion. The first menswear designer, Krishna then introduced her Indo-West and fusion lines for women in 1991 which were also the first of its kind to be seen in the country.
In order to make her garments within the reach of a larger market, Krishna launched “K2”, her label for ready-to-wear garments for women in 1998. The brands ‘Krishna Mehta’ and ‘K2’ are available in her franchisee store in Baroda, Ensemble in Mumbai and Delhi and across all ‘Be’ stores in India and Dubai. “Krishna Mehta’s” is a label synonymous with classic designs of understated elegance. Relaxed yet bold, in keeping with the pace of the contemporary life. Today, Krishna Mehta could easily be called the ‘priestess of classicism’ who has continued perfecting her designs and styles, realizing the acute awareness of Indian Fashion internationally. Be it her prêt or couture lines, “Krishna Mehta” boasts a distinctive style, a creation that can be spotted miles away anywhere in the world.
