Abraham & Thakore is one of India’s most successful and respected design resources for fashion and accessories as well as textile products for the home. This design label was initially established by David Abraham and Rakesh Thakore, graduates of the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad who were later joined by Kevin Nigli, a design graduate of NIFT New Delhi.
Each Abraham & Thakore collection continues the exploration of developing a quiet and modern design voice while simultaneously drawing on the rich traditional vocabulary of Indian design and craft. The design sensibility is low key yet highly distinctive, with a strong respect for material, form and craft. In a consumer-driven world of mass-produced fast fashion, Abraham & Thakore reiterates the belief that real luxury lies in specially crafted products in limited numbers of high quality.
An important aspect of the different collections presented each season is the very modern synergy between fashion and lifestyle with a unifying vision for the way the contemporary urban consumer dresses and lives whether in New Delhi, London or Tokyo.
The work of Abraham & Thakore has been exhibited at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, in a British Council exhibition on contemporary Indian design, and in the Volkart Foundation sponsored exhibition on Khadi, among others.
