About Radhika Jain
A course in Fashion Design from London College of Fashion (Cordwainers), the UK in 2012 imparted an international perspective on footwear design to Radhika Jain. Over time, she honed her knowledge of the peculiarities of footwear designing and remained in India to complete her masters in Footwear Technology in 2014. This period helped infuse new vision for her own future brand. She learnt Online Retail for Fashion Business from LCF, UK. This education coupled with a rich practical work experience in India and Italy lent her the inspiration to start on her own brand with the objective to become an internationally renowned luxury designer. The result was the inception of Radhika J, a label that brings together the expertise of designers from all over the country under one roof. Her association with Parsons School of Design is an added advantage. Radhika’s designs are both modernistic and simple. According to her, ‘the most admirable designs are a result of the free mind. Design can be an inspiration from an idea, a thought, a minute detail, a feeling, a concept or a form, independent or integrated in an aesthetically appealing manner.’
