Alumnus of FIT New York, Ranna Gill launched her pret label with elegant globally- relevant looks. Having worked with Donna Karan and Ralph Lauren and a founding member of Fashion Design Council of India, she retails through her e-store, six brick- and- mortar stores and through select high fashion retailers in the US.
As a founding member of the Fashion Design Council of India, Ranna Gill is considered one of the pioneering members of the Indian fashion fraternity. She is perceived as a futurist, someone who believes in the power of fashion and in pushing the boundaries, to take Indian fashion to a global level. She switches between New Delhi and New York, and from the lush gardens of her Long Island home, she cultivates layers of texture and hues that are unmistakably in her signature design aesthetic.
Ranna Gill's design journey began in Delhi in 1998, when her mother launched a fashion brand. Following her mother's footprints, she enrolled in the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, and after graduating she came back to India to join her mother and helm the brand as Creative Director. The brand understands that all women deserve to feel beautiful and the designs celebrate inclusivity. Ranna Gill- as a brand- has redefined pret and urban Indian style through its classic silhouettes that can fit into an everyday wardrobe with ease and elegance. Its signature prints and embroideries, curated every season, thoughtfully elevates the silhouettes, giving it the touch of distinct luxury.
Ranna Gill balances retail appeal with innovative design and sustaining indigenous textile craft. Per Explosive Fashion: "We play with craft techniques in our collections by taking a reference point i.e. Phulkari, Patola, Bandhani and interpreting it through modern lens so it's wearable today and doesn’t look too costume-y. I love using indigenous textile craft."
Today, the luxury pret brand has a significant network of directly operated stores in Delhi and Mumbai, with a new store opening in Southampton, New York. The brand also works with International retailers like Anthropologie and a number of boutiques across the United States of America. “Ranna Gill has carved its own niche as a worldwide label retailing in Indo-Western collections. We owe our 25 years of success to our talented team of artisans, designers and employees, many who have been a part of the team from its initial years,” states the designer's note on her official website.
Gill has advice for those who wish to build an ethical wardrobe. Per Explosive Fashion: “My advice to those who want to shop responsibly and build an ethical wardrobe would be to buy things that you will continue to use… that are easy to wear and on trend… that you see yourself re-using. Buy stuff that is value for money and easy on your pocket. Buy whatever makes you happy; getting stressed and investing in something expensive is not a good idea.”
Ranna Gill understands that all women deserve to feel beautiful and her collections celebrate the essence of inclusivity. The luxury brand has redefined pret and urban style through classic silhouettes that can seamlessly fit into an everyday wardrobe with ease and elegance.
Ranna Gill envisions balancing global retail appeal with innovative design using indigenous textile craft.
