Brand founders Mr and Mrs Sachin and Babi A
hluwalia’s is a fashion love story. The two grew up in different Indian cities, both in fashion industry families, but didn’t meet until the third day of fashion design school at New York’s FIT. The college sweethearts started out as a supplier of beautiful Indian textiles (ANK Embroideries) to some of the fashion industry's leading designers (including Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang, and Giorgio Armani), as well as making their own “Ankasa” home lifestyle brand. Then, in 2008, the visionary pair introduced their RTW brand Sachin + Babi for Ankasa with the mantra that luxurious textiles could translate to any design aesthetic. Filled with subtle glamour and plenty of romance and style, the Ahluwalias’ unique way of designing casually luxurious clothing appeals to every woman looking for a little shimmer without going over the top. Sachin + Babi for Ankasa creations are starting to catch the attention of many Hollywood stars.
