Sachin & Babi
Sachin and Babi met as students at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), where they were instant friends. The two were cut from the same cloth, bonding over their common interests, ambitions and upbringing in India. Friendship grew into love, and soon after, a company. Together, Sachin and Babi built a design and embroidery business, working for top houses including Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Manolo Blahnik, among others. Sachin and Babi were one of fashion’s best kept secrets behind-the-scenes, until they set out on their own. Driven by a commitment to incredible craftsmanship and a desire to connect with customers, Sachin and Babi launched their own brand. By owning a family-run factory in Mumbai, they are able to control the design and production process from start to finish, cutting out the middlemen. The result: extraordinary clothing and accessories with tremendous value.
