Born in 1995, Anusha Shaikh is an upcoming fashion designer and entrepreneur hailing from Goa, bringing all new innovation to style through her creativity. Ambitious, she broke barriers, by making a name for herself in the fashion industry in Bengaluru and is now furthering her reach to Goa. Although coming from a conservative and traditional family, she has worked hard towards achieving her goals with sheer dedication and determination, along with all the love and support from her parents and extended family, in Curchorem. A work in progress as she calls herself, Anusha has already established her very own label; Anusha’s, and has collaborated with multi designer stores whilst participating with various celebrity designers in fashion competitions where she could only express her jubilation after having achieved victory in most. All this, right after completing her graduation in Commerce and a Master Diploma in Fashion in Bengaluru, where she had spent a larger amount of time exploring and acquiring skills related to her fashion identity. Now, she has returned to Goa in pursuit of opening her own fashion studio and a resolve to make a difference in her community, predominantly in the lives of children with special needs.
Blending modernity with detailed traditional aspects, her label is progressively defining a new style for the modern Indian women. A creative collection, starting from casual ethnic wear and extending up to fine bridal couture, complete with intricate embroidery techniques and colours that please the eye, featuring a diverse mix of traditional and experimental styles. India, being a known ‘melting pot’ of different cultures, she believes in showcasing all its diversity through her designs which are crafted to perfection, while growing her base of clients throughout the country.
Fearless, Anusha is always up for a challenge. With a first rate experience in several fashion shows and competitions, she is now preparing for her first very own fashion show on the 21st in the month of January 2018, named Runway Inspiration by Anusha’s in Goa. Marking the fashion show as a high profile event, it is supported by the Goa Tourism which is run and managed with a view to promoting and developing the best the state has to offer. Anusha is ready to set the stage with her most important highlight of the event, where she showcases children with special needs on the runway, flaunting her designs. After being moved by her contact with students from an institution for special children, she was inspired to give them a platform where they could walk confidently, with pride of their beauty throughout, on a professional stage, which she turned into a reality.
She is all set, designing 50 distinctive garments for the show and with the vision of the proceedings of this event going to the noble cause of charity, supporting the education of these precious children. The Fashion Show has been divided into a set of three sequences, with the special children taking over the ramp first, followed by aspiring models dressed in her Indo-Western outfit collection, and lastly closing with renowned models and celebrities who will showcase her line of Traditional Indian and Bridal outfits: cohesively getting all special children, aspiring youth, professional models and celebrities under one roof.
With her delicately gorgeous range of ensembles mixed with charm, contemporary cuts and silhouettes, Anusha is set to revolutionise the fashion scene in Goa, with full confidence and a penchant for well finished craftsmanship.
