Deepa Gurnani was conceived in the dreams and passions shared by husband and wife partnership, Deepa and Jay Lakhani. After their marriage in 2005, the duo combined their talents to create a line of unique and distinctive embroidered accessories.
While studying fashion at London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Deepa beaded couture pieces forAlexander McQueen, Emanuel Ungaro, Fendi and Marjan Pejoski.
Working closely with these designers not only enabled Deepa to understand couture standards of quality and finish, but also compelled her to experiment with new and unusual beading and embroidery techniques. Combining this experience with her own distinct style and sensibility gave her the inspiration to create her own line.
