Com’On Dress continues its quest in the search for passionate creators, we collaborate with the brand “Arushi & Gabriel” which is inspired by its 100% Merino wool scarves from Arushi’s Indian origins and transposes them into the European style to recall Gabriel’s origins.
Where does the name of your brand “Arushi & Gabriel” come from?
Arushi and Gabriel: we met in Australia during our school years and moved to Paris in 2012 to get married. So we live in Paris and travel regularly to India.
Arushi, Indian from Delhi, I work in the fashion and retail industry in Paris
Gabriel, Parisian, I work in social networks.
Living in France and travelling regularly to India, we have made many discoveries there. We have started to match the “Indian look” with the “Parisian style” both for our interior and for our look. From these discoveries, the idea of a brand uniting these two cultures was born and we now want to share this fusion with you.
Since when have you been attracted to fashion/creation?
I’ve been interested in fashion all my life. In 2003, I went to the National Institute of Fashion Technology, Delhi, India, to study communication with fashion. It is one of the best schools in the country to study fashion.
