Lavanya is the founder and owner of her eponymous label, Lavanya Coodly. She is mainly self-taught learning over the course several decades from experienced pattern masters, tailors and embroidery artists. In 2013, she launched her company, Nicobar Isle and her first resort collection for women in 2014. In 2016, a menswear and children’s wear capsule collections have also been developed.
We would like to create two to three collections per year where glamor and practicality are both equally addressed. We wish to incorporate accessories in the near future.
Classic silhouettes mostly with some surprises using hand made fabrics and intricate embroideries.
Great American designers like Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan to name just a few. Colors, embroideries and prints reflect my own aesthetic.
We would like to create a range of timeless, investment pieces for independent, modern men and women that dress to please themselves.
IF YOU COULD DRESS ANY CELEBRITY WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
There are many amazing, unsung heroes that are celebrities in their own right and
we would be honored to dress them. Kate Middleton, Michelle Obama or Amal Clooney also come to mind because these strong, intelligent women possess an innate sense of style that is captivating.
