Ten-Second Takeaway

Iyla Clothing by Shreya Anand is an eclectic collection of earthy, subtle handwoven apparel with vibrant ikat designs and monochrome block prints, for the forever spring person in you. The best part: she’s just opened her first studio in Mumbai. We checked it out for you.

Handwoven Cotton Dresses And More

We enter the tiny work studio on the terrace of a Khar building, and are greeted by a pretty workspace set up by the designer and fashion stylist. Beautiful dresses, jumpsuits and tops in shades of grey, black and white adorn the two racks at display, with fairy lights in empty Old Monk bottles.

Why We Love It

All her products, which include the Sitara cutout dress {the back of which resembles the cut of the musical instrument}, a dhoti-style dress, block pants, and the ikat jumpsuit, are created using handwoven cotton and fabrics.
It’s casual-wear with breathable fabrics, which makes it perfect for all seasons of Mumbai. With colourful hand embroidery on the cuffs and collars, adding the extra colour to otherwise routine shades of grey, we’re floored by the intricate ikat designs which is the theme of this versatile collection.


We are in love with the Paddyfields Backless Dress, and 500 days of Summer frill top.
