The couture label ‘House of Kotwara’ was the brainchild of two creative minds. Filmmaker and painter, Muzaffar Ali – the Raja of Kotwara – and his architect wife, Meera Ali who conceptualized the brand to revive the traditional craft of Awadh (Uttar Pradesh, India) In 1990. It worked towards understanding the aesthetics and reimagining the craft with designs of the modern world. This integration of old-style beauty with modern design sensibility, gave the collection its essence.
