Suman Nathwani began her journey in 1987, pioneering the lingerie industry in India. Although Suman had a flare for fashion and style since she was a child, her journey as a designer only started when her sister was getting married and Suman was unable to find the desired sleepwear for her. That is when, drawing her inspiration from her childhood favourite novels of Mills & Boon, Suman webbed an entire wardrobe for her sister. There was no looking back after then and Suman realised she had to weave her career in sync with her passion.
Suman had no formal education in the field of fashion, but her passion drove her towards building the successful fashion label Suman Nathwani. She was the first, and till date the only, designer designing luxury nightwear in the country.
She has actively participated in Bridal Asia since 1990 to 2013 and is a preliminary member of Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI). Suman has also showcased her collection at Lakme Fashion Week. Celebrities like John Abraham, Celina Jaitley, Koena Mitra, Katrina Kaif, etc. have adorned her outfits all these years. The brand’s outfits have also been worn by film stars in a number of movies, like Amitabh Bachchan in Last Lear, Raima Sen in Chokher Bali, Bipasha Basu in Sob Choritro Kalponik, etc.
Apart from being a designer, she has also taken on the mantle of a counselor and has been counseling women since the last eight years for lingerie fitting. She has been a guiding point for women suffering from breast cancer and has also tied up with TATA Memorial Centre, which sends mastectomy patients to her for their lingerie counselling or silicone implanted lingeries.
Suman Nathwani aims to convert this segment of designer lingerie and sleepwear into a full-fledged industry through both conventional and couture dimensions of new creations. She has been tirelessly working towards this goal for over three decades, and her enthusiasm remains the same as it was when she started.
