Barkha Shewakramani

Dubai based Indian designer Barkha Shewakramani has created a name for herself in the local fashion scene with her beautiful show-stopping creations. Her haute couture line, Drama Queen first debuted in 2007 at Dubai Fashion Week, and immediately garnered a following of luxury fashion devotees.

Since the beginning, Shewakramani wanted her collections to be affordable and yet still maintain a high sense of quality and luxury. Now into her fifth year, the designer has preserved her brand’s aesthetic and quality

From a very young age I was intrigued by the world of fashion, which often led me to cut and stitch the clothes my mom had bought for me. Fashion has always been a form of art for me; it’s a way of expressing myself through the language of fabrics, embellishments and various silhouettes. I went on to study garment construction at the American University in Dubai and it felt like a natural progression to go on to create my own fashion label.
