Couturier, costume stylist, entrepreneur, and revivalist; Oorvi Desai’s prolific career spanning 17 years has seen her redefine fashion for an entire generation of India and now England. Her collections represent India’s rich and vibrant craft which is encapsulated in global contours. She uses unusual fabrics, texturing and detailing, fusion of styles, patch-work with embellishments in a range of vibrant colours. Her creations evoke images of ancient and royal Indian culture and traditions.
From an early age, as young as 13, Oorvi had a strong passion towards Bollywood movies. This coupled with her growing love for fashion drew her towards the profession of costume designing. She knew she wanted to helm her own fashion house. The celebrated designer graduated from the famed Nirmala Niketan College of Home-Science in Mumbai, India with an honours degree in Textiles.
On Sept 11, 1998, Oorvi bagged the ‘Best Textile Designer Award-Mumbai ‘sponsored by Bombay Dyeing & Mfg Company Limited, India and was awarded a sponsorship towards further studies in Textiles & Fashion in the California University. In 2003, she launched her first fashion house in Malabar Hill, Mumbai, India. With her bold fashion creations, Oorvi extended her influence beyond fashion to carve her niche as a luxury Indian designer. In August 2002, Oorvi showcased her collections in London, Leicester and Birmingham and her ensembles were published in editorials like the Eastern eye newspaper, helping establish herself as a luxury fashion designer in the UK. In the very beginning of 2020, she opened her fashion house in London, which features her collections that draw on history, fantasy and folklore to create masterpieces that are desired by discerning aficionados around the globe. She describes her own collections as "International styling with an Indian soul, served with a bespoke touch.”
