Behind the Seams: Sachin + Babi

This husband and wife duo has been the go to resource for textile design and embroidery within the design and couture world for over a decade. Their namesake collection, which launched almost three years ago, exhibits a blend of pretty and etheral with edge and fashion forwardness. We went behind the seams with the designers to find out how the story behind their last line, their favorite trends as of late, and more.

 

 

Tell me the story behind your last line:
The overtone of the collection is very “rock and roll chic”. I wanted to really look at the woman who would be wearing these clothes and create pieces that conveyed a sense of edginess and seriousness, while at the same time, highlight her femininity. I think that a woman is most beautiful when you look at her strengths and weaknesses, her silhouette and her shadow… This collection celebrates who she is and how she feels.

What is something you dream of achieving, but haven’t yet?

I’m not telling….

 

How would you describe your own style?
My personal style is fairly classic and casual.

What is your favorite trend right now?
Color, color, color!

 

What was your proudest moment as a designer?
Babi and I were in a store where we met a mother and daughter with their arms full of our Sachin and Babi dresses. The mother had given her daughter this shopping spree as a graduation gift. The daughter selected 3 of our dresses and her mom bought one too! It was so rewarding to see that our line transcended generations.

 

 

If you could give advice to aspiring designers, what would it be?
Be relevant. There must be a reason for why you and your designs exist. It should be about “her”, not you.
