artisan luxe was born out of the idea of creating a modern Indian brand which is pure luxury, truly sustainable and produced ethically. Informed by the growing global movement of slow fashion, the brand creates beautifully tailored clothing in sustainable silks, that is not season or trend driven, with impeccable fit and finish. The silhouettes are feminine with a bit of whimsy, celebrating a woman’s body, no matter her size and age. The pieces are imagined as timeless classics and wardrobe staples that never go out of style.
