ABOUT THE BRAND & DESIGNERS
A British fashion brand, which resonates rich Indian culture, combined with contemporary western influences, specializing in hand embellished bridal and occasion wear.
AMKI is designed in the U.K and Canada, made with quality by Indian craftsmanship, expressing the perfect blend of contemporary and traditional silhouettes with intricate detailing.
The brand’s name is taken from the first two letters of each designer’s name, Amani & Kiren.
The two sisters grew up involved in family business from a young age; they experienced the values of working together and sharing innovative ideas, and the brand is
The sisters studied design and fashion, and it is here where they discovered their passion for textiles; experimenting with fabrics,
colour and contemporary designs.
Their first real transition into fashion started on their trip to India one summer whilst wedding shopping. In search for a bridal outfit, they were optimistic but felt there was very little that represented them as women growing up with western and traditional influences.
This led them to designing their own lehenga (Indian garment) and ignited the ambition of filling the gap in the market.
WHERE TRADITIONAL MEETS CONTEMPORARY
The woman who wears AMKI is in line with modern trends. She wants to be different and stand out from the crowd on any occasion. She represents confidence, style and timeless fashion.
The signature aesthetic of traditional-meets-modern, compliments the vision for the brand. Their collections take inspiration from the experience and interest in both the western and eastern cultures. Being hands on in the design process, from sketches to selecting fabrics, gives the designers the edge in the Indo-Western market and as innovative British Indian designers.
