Lavanya Coodly

Independent fashion brand Lavanya Coodly will debut their Fall/Winter 2017 collection at the Nolcha Shows, during New York Fashion Week. The Nolcha Shows will take place on February 13th, 2017 at ArtBeam.


The Nolcha Shows, held during New York Fashion Week and now its in ninth year, is one of the city’s leading platforms for global independent fashion designers.


Lavanya Coodly is a brand designed to resonate with the urban woman who is bohemian at heart. It speaks to the curious minded woman who is open to new experiences and confidently expresses her personal style. She dresses to please herself. The brand creates classic styles using hand made fabrics and intricate embroideries.


For designer Lavanya Coodly, designing was a quietly nurtured passion that segued into a full time career in 2013. After spending many years in the world of science, it was time for a big change. Re-tooling with a degree in business, developing her women’s wear label became the obvious second career of choice. Thus, a company was born. And with it, the opportunity to own, create and develop a brand built on new ideas.


Lavanya Coodly, designer, comments; “We are thrilled to be part of the Nolcha Shows and showcase our FW 2017/18 collection on this platform. We are appreciative of all the opportunities that have come our way as we result of this partnership”.


Designers showcasing alongside Lavanya Coodly in the main collective runway show include returning designers Samantha Leibowitz and ACID NYC.


Kerry Bannigan, Co-Founder, Nolcha Shows shares; “I am thrilled to welcome Lavanya Coodly to the Nolcha Shows this season. We look forward to introducing this brand to our in-depth network that seeks to support the launch and growth of independent fashion designers
