With its roots dug deep in quality craftsmanship and refined tailoring, the Kanika Goyal Label finds its identity through venturing into provocative minimalism. Fascinated by the principle of paradox, the designer consistently channels her contrasting ideals into garments that narrate a similar story.
A graduate of National Institute of Fashion Technology, New Delhi, Kanika’s affinity to design & innovation instantly translated into a raging passion. She was constantly surrounded by shapes, angles and lines as a design student, which further enhanced her perspective. Eager to experiment, she went on to explore opportunities with the best in the industry. A series of varied internships later, Kanika, having satiated her appetite for a multidimensional profile, stepped closer to her passion.
Consequently, at Parsons The New School for Design, New York, Kanika was absorbed in a world of immaculacy. While she fine tuned her skills in all spheres of design, she sincerely focused on evolving from a designer to a global couturier. From illustrious internships at Marchesa and Prada to assisting Bibhu Mohapatra for a year and a half, Kanika delved into the world of exquisite garments and more importantly, bespoke philosophies. Her strenuous hours at these design houses were exceedingly instrumental in establishing her obsession for quality and detail. It was here that the designer streamlined her precious influences into a singular, more compact design philosophy.
Her label’s identity, while imbibing on the ideals of luxury, weaves the evolution of a multicultural designer with an ever-maturing design perspective. Thriving on this contrast, her label is evidently, a dialogue on her creative cognition.
