Understated yet glamorous best describes Pia's designs and persona. Born and raised in India, Pia was first influenced by her mother, who handmade all of the children's clothing and sweaters and embellished them with unusual trims. Pia went on to study fashion in India and ultimately at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.
Pia then moved to New York City to expand her creative horizons by immersing herself in New York's energetic mecca of fashion. Shortly after arriving, she was nominated for the Rising Star Award by the FGI. For many years now, Pia has collaborated with contemporary and high end brands to develop their collections and has succeeded in combining the old world influences from her childhood with today's modernism.
Having developed an understanding of color, surface texture and embroidery by working with a team of skilled craftsmen in India, she creates modern, feminine silhouettes for the new world woman. Her collections include cocktail to evening dressing with one of a kind statement pieces. In addition, she gives new meaning to her leather line with prints and embellishments.
