The Deepa Gurnani brand was conceived in the dreams and passions of husband and wife partnership, Deepa and Jay Lakhani. 

While studying fashion at London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Deepa beaded couture pieces for Alexander McQueen, Emanuel Ungaro, Fendi and Marjan Pejoski.  Working closely with these designers not only enabled Deepa to understand couture standards of quality and finish, but also compelled her to experiment with new and unusual beading and embroidery techniques.  Combining this experience with her own distinct style and sensibility, inspired her to create her own line.

Jay Lakhani, a Jewelry Designer, started his training at the Fashion Institute of Technology NYC and progressed to work with some of the finest names in the fine jewelry industry. He trained under head designers from Tiffany and Bvlgari, where he refined his eye for detail and luxury. In addition to his love of fine jewelry, Jay was always drawn to fashion.  He dreamed of combining the art of fine jewelry with fashion accessories, to create easy-to-wear works of art.  He noticed a trend for black and basic-silhouettes in the marketplace, which he saw as blank canvasses for exquisite embroidered accessories.

In 2005, Jay Lakhani and Deepa Gurnani came together and became husband and wife.  After their marriage, the two designers collaborated and launched their label “Deepa Gurnani”. The duo combined their talents to create a line of unique and distinctive embroidered accessories, which continues to amaze, and inspire fans, season after season. Their first line was launched at Henri Bendel’s, NYC in November 2006 and subsequently sold in various stores across the globe.

After 10 years in business, the brand has grown from strength to strength in a constantly changing industry. Customer expectations of exquisite craftsmanship and luxury is ever in demand, however in a challenging world economy there is a growing need to satisfy a more price-conscious customer.

In 2016, Deepa Gurnani launched two separate ranges to satisfy the needs of our global customers. ‘Deepa Gurnani ‘ remains a luxury brand, focused on limited edition trend-led capsule collections, made with Swarovski crystals and semi-precious stones. The second brand ‘Deepa by Deepa Gurnani’ is a more accessible collection, creating beautiful and easy-to- wear pieces for all occasions. 

2016 also marked Deepa Gurnani’s exclusive collaboration with designer and artist, Erté.  The collection consists of styles inspired by Erté’s delicate and glamorous art deco look.  All Erté styles are hand embroidered using Deepa Gurnani’s finest techniques. 

Through today, the highest quality standards prevail in all collections with no compromise on the quality and the ethics of our workmanship.

A go-to for cool, unique, and clever designs that don’t feel overly formal. Designer Han Chong designed his new Pre-Fall collection, which is in store now, with warm summer days and nights in mind. Many of his dresses have clever cut-outs and breathable details for those hot and humid August temperatures.

With 3-D floral appliqués, graphic lace and open-knit details, the collection is crafty, sporty, and just the right amount of “girly.”


Trend Alert

This summer’s color is one of our favorite spicy shades.
All things red is what we are seeing in the forecast. Crimson, scarlet, poppy, we’ve got them all. And don’t be afraid to mix your reds up; the spectrum of reds will enhance your look (especially when you neutralize it down with white or khaki).

   The look we have here features a Trina Turk top in their ‘torch’ color. The voluminous sleeve and pleating detail are giving us 70’s vibes, while the simple silk is perfect for the daytime weather. The top is partnered with a garment that we completely stand behind, a denim skirt! This one is from a new brand for Julian Gold called ‘McGuire Denim,’ and we are smitten. Mixing with the torch top, we added a little bit of edge with one of our favorites – a Valentino ‘Rockstud’ clutch in red.
And finally, to keep the shoe grounded, we went for a dressed down look with an Alice + Olivia ‘Penny’ laser-cut sandal in bone. The simple pendant from Camille jewelry is a little extra bit of flare, partnered with a simple blacker choker necklace of the same designer – the gold tones really enhance the brightness of the red.
