Emerging New Zealand couture label Srishti Kaur Designs was founded in 2015 with an aim to create unique and beautifully handcrafted pieces. Meticulously handcrafting each bespoke bridal and evening couture gown, the brand developed from founder and designer Srishti Kaur’s passion for gowns. “When I started looking into the market, I realised not a lot of people offered a high-end bespoke service for evening gowns,” explained Kaur. “So I tested the market for the first year by offering the service through social media which was well received and slowly entered the bridal market thereafter.” Since establishing her style and niche in an extravagant show at Vancouver Fashion Week last September, Kaur’s stunning designs have been widely appreciated across the globe. Kaur predominantly makes bespoke garments, which can be found on her website or her social media channels.

Ethereal Ecstasy is the collection Kaur is showcasing at New Zealand Fashion Week as part of the New Generation show. Inspired by the idea of eternal love, this collection explores the emotional trance-like state where one transforms itself into a new realm of beauty. As Kaur’s first time showcasing at New Zealand Fashion Week, each piece balance simple silhouettes with immaculate fabrics sourced from Asia. “There are plunging necklines, capes and illusion driven appliqued hand embroidery to reach a euphoric level of beauty, elegance and drama.” Through showcasing her designs at New Zealand Fashion Week, Kaur hopes to gain industry attention and expand her market and clientele.
