Aksha was born in Bangalore, in the south of India. She grew-up across this multifaceted country, moving every two to three years because of her parents’ professions. At a very early age, she was exposed to the arts and crafts, primarily influenced by her parents. She received a degree in architecture and went on to work as an architect for couple of years. At some point, she discovered that she wanted to explore her curiosity for design and crafts further. Inspired by Italian traditions in shoe crafts and attention to detail, led her to study shoe design in Milan.
Fashion opened up a new fascination for Aksha, beyond the craft itself — a curiosity in the cultural, socio-economic perspectives of fashion — how it plays an integral role within a woman’s wardrobe and how it’s shaped by society over time.
After Italy, Aksha moved to London with her Swedish partner Lars, whom she met during her Masters course. London, as a multicultural and diverse city was a natural choice, and has played an important role as Aksha evolved as a shoe designer. The Brand was co-founded by Aksha and Lars in 2011.
