Mehak Khosla, the founder and Creative Head of Meko Studio shares her inspiration and motivation to embark on a journey of initiating a fashion label.
Tell us something about yourself
I was always very interested in fashion very early on in life. In order to pursue my passion, I went on to achieve my design degree from the prestigious NIFT, New Delhi where I found my love for knitwear even further and was awarded a gold medal from the ministry of textiles India. I had spent most of my childhood in Mozambique, Africa, where one thing that would always catch my eye was the local handicrafts that artisans had to offer. I found myself with the same kind of endearment when we would go for craft cluster visits all over India. During my 4 year course, I got very intrigued with Indian handicrafts and the skill that goes behind making something by hand from scratch. I would always try to incorporate some handicraft details even in my projects during college. With the endless possibilities with knitwear and textiles, Meko was born with a vision of developing eco-friendly pieces by marrying sustainability and the traditional work of artisans.
What inspired you to start Meko Studio and how is it different from other fashion labels?
Meko Studio is a slow fashion knitwear brand that explores our symbiotic relationship with nature. Our brand ethos is to create valuable timeless pieces that last you a lifetime while working with our local artisans and bringing life to the fading handicraft culture of India.
