Today we are going to talk about two famous fashion designers from the industry who are twin Sisters & Partners from Delhi – Divvya & Nidhhi Gambhir.
So, Who is a fashion designer or costume designer? A person who deals with designing the costumes for an individual on a high level that is for models and celebs. So, I got the opportunity to have an interview with these Divas to know the potential, knowledge, skills, and experience in this industry.
Following is the series of interview questions answers with Divvya & Nidhhi Gambhir to know them better:
Q. Everyone has a story behind! What was yours? What sparked your interest in costume designing?
After studying fashion from NIFT Delhi, we decided to follow our own sense of design and fashion, which led us to launch our label, WALNUT. With seasons after seasons at Lakhme Fashion Week and Wills India (Amazon now) fashion week, we wanted to explore more ways of jutting out our creativity. We love films, so costume designing was the next step. It gives an opportunity like none other to keep exploring, experimenting from one film to another.
Q. When did you know you wanted to be a fashion designer?
We always loved clothes, but in a way designing chose us. We decided to study fashion and again we loved the whole process of designing and creating something new every time.

We, Divvya & Nidhhi Gambhir, Twin Sisters, Designers, Partners, come from Delhi. Now, based out of Bombay.
Q. What made you take fashion more seriously and make a career out of it?
We had always been super focused. We knew we wanted to have our own line and things fell in place with time, dedication, and hard work. Fashion is a field which gives you space and freedom to express yourself through your work, which we loved.

We both studied from NIFT Delhi, but what you learn on the job, no fashion school can teach you.
