THE NEW COLLECTION TRANSPORTS YOU INTO THE WORLD OF THE MYSTERIOUS EAST
With Monsoon and Beyond, Austrian designer Vera Fritsch presents luxurious textiles, garments and accessories that show exquisite craftsmanship, delicate fabrics and unique designs. The New Delhi and Hong Kong based label was founded in 2013 and has since become an established brand with features in magazines such as FORBES, VOGUE, ELLE, WOMAN, etc.. to name a few. Monsoon and Beyond is retailing through its web shop as well as high-end stores in Austria, Germany, Italy, UK, Australia, India, Hong Kong and the USA. All products are handcrafted and ethically produced in India. With each of her collections, Vera takes you on an enchanting journey through India.
The label will present its opulent AW 2019/20 collection at the CAPSULE show in New York (23 – 25 Feb 2019) as well as at a showroom in Paris (28th Feb – 8th March 2019). The collection of luxurious silk and cotton garments as well as accessories are inspired by the most beautiful monument in the world – the Taj Mahal. Through the designer`s unique print designs and alluring colors she captures the myth and ornamental beauty of the Taj.
Every garment is meticulously made by hand by artisans from Jaipur and New Delhi. The luxurious silk and soft cotton fabrics are woven in India. The collection features garments with delicate cotton trims echoing the exquisite marble inlay work of the Taj Mahal. Our coloured garments are hand-dyed according to ancient Indian dyeing techniques. The belts, shoes and handbags are intricately hand-embroidered.
“I believe that design and sustainability go hand in hand. My designs celebrate traditional Indian handicraft and we aim to preserve ancient forms of Indian craft techniques that are slowly disappearing”, says designer and founder Vera Fritsch.
