Sachin + Babi Part II

5 Mar

Thursday night was a huge success — again, many thanks to Neiman Marcus’s PR.  Meeting these two was a rather entertaining experience.  Designers as well as partners in the industry, they are quite the dynamic married couple; one of the night’s funnier moments, Sachin returned from a long absence exclaiming, “See, she always insists, ‘No, no, you should sit down for a few minutes,’ and look, I end up with an oxygen facial.”
It was great discussing their inspiration, ideas, and use of textiles — beautiful patterns reminiscent of old world India paired with novelty and unique textures, which give a modern, lush feel to their work.  As models showcased the SS 2011 lookbook I saw this very admirable consistency in quality.  And when the night came to a close, I left with a resort dress courtesy of their Midtown studio and an invitation to Lincoln Center this fall — oh yes!


Q&A with Sachin + Babi Part I

2 Mar

For the next 24 hours before my meeting, I’m opening the floor to any questions you may have for this awesome husband and wife design duo.  Comment and tweet @takefashion!
Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia, the match made at FIT known for home furnishing brand Ankasa and ready-to-wear label Sachin + Babi, have been a sought after team for years.  Visionaries in couture embroideries and wonderfully unique textiles, they redefined modern luxury with fashion-forward sophistication.
Today you can find their retail line at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.
