The spirited designer, Deepika Govind, holds sacred the sensitive touch of the human hand, the meditative thought of the weaver. She desires to bring to life the value of natural fibre, a hand-woven textile, a handcrafted ensemble. Her flagship stores in New Delhi and Bengaluru showcase the originality of her designs, be it her prêt, couture collection or lifestyle accessories. Her design philosophy is ‘Fashion for EARTH’ (E= Elements, A= Art, R= Revolution, T= Technology, and H= Human Hand). With a keen eye for detailing and precision, each of Deepika’s handcrafted ensembles is akin to unique pieces of art, representing the contradiction that dwells in each of us.

Govind has a Degree in Arts from Mount Carmel College, Bangalore and a Masters in Economics at Stella Maris College, Madras. She attended the programme on sketching and presentations and Programme in Pattern-making, National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT, Bangalore); Programme on merchandising, NIFT, Bangalore; She even has the experience of working with kalamkari and kasuti artists (traditional crafts).

Inspired by the world around her and true to her Indian roots, Govind is one of Bangalore’s most celebrated fashion designers. She is the avant-garde artist whose work is innovative yet wearable, creative yet classic. Her collections have been based on traditional weaves and natural dyes.

“People with larger body types should veer away from dramatic prints,” she advises. The same applies to petite people who tend to get ‘swallowed’ by a powerful print. “I am not a fan of animal prints,” she says emphatically. “I think animals look better in their own skins than we do in theirs.”

“Dark colours define the season,” says Govind. “Blacks and teal aqua are hot this season.” “Checks are in, as are vibrant graphic prints like that of foliage,” she says. Govind has always been more inclined towards hand work like scribbling through textile paint or using a sponge to create patterns on fabric.

    We have planned a function on 6th December 2015. And all I can say is that it was amazing and perfect. We had a gathering of around 150 people. And they provided us the best hall for that. The decoration was perfect as per our requirements. The food was fantastic. They also provided 2 complimentary rooms. The staff was wonderful in every way. Mr. Rubal and all of the staff were incredibly helpful. We would highly recommend The Jehan.

    The experience with the Jehan was great on my daughter's marriage.
    I stayed at the Jehan with my close relatives for two days and the staff at the Jehan was so cooperative that we felt homely at the Jehan.
    The ambiance was five star. The food was delicious. Also, the decor at the Mehandi ceremony and wedding done by Mr. Manoj/Rahul from m/s. Pandi decorator was marvelous and above to our expectation.
    Keep it up ' The Jehan'.
