Deepa Gurnani Genders Woman

Deepa Gurnani is a design house specializing in hand beaded, embroidered accessories. There is a commitment to design excellence and innovation, as well as maintaining the highest quality production techniques.

Each piece is individually handcrafted with the finest quality materials and crystals, by highly trained and skilled craftsmen. The designers add their final and personal touch to every piece by paying particular attention to quality and finish.

While studying fashion at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (London), Deepa Gurnani beaded couture pieces for Alexander McQueen, Emanuel Ungaro, Fendi, Marjan Pejoski, etc. Working closely with these designers not only enabled Deepa to understand European standards of quality and finish, but also compelled her to experiment with beading and embroidery techniques. This in turn gave her a distinct sense of style to create her own line.

Jay Lakhani, a jewelry designer from the Fashion Institute of Technology (NYC), always dreamt of creating jeweled accessories. Having trained under the head designers of Tiffany and Bulgari, as well as working in the fine jewelry industry with some of the largest retailers and manufacturers for eight years, Jay was always drawn to fashion.

After their marriage, the two designers collaborated their ideas and launched their label "Deepa Gurnani".
