Our discerning clients desire precision and production of collections within tight timelines. Having successfully satisfied our clients with our exquisite hand crafted embroideries, impeccable quality and efficient deliveries, over the past three decades, Shevie prides itself as a leader in partnering with the most iconic brands of the Fashion Industry.
Prior to co-founding Shevie, Sheila designed traditional Indian bridal wear and trousseaus. Her subsequent involvement in international couture was a natural progression for her, particularly in the domains of Human Resources and production. Sheila is inspired by the worlds of Valentino and Issey Miyake, and is always fascinated by fabrics, prints, embroidery techniques and finishes. Sheila is an active member of the Rotary Club of Mumbai, and involves herself in various philanthropic initiatives with the intention of helping boost marginalised groups in the country.
Upon completing a Bachelors Degree in Economics from Case Western Reserve University in the USA, Vivek completed a course at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York to gain a better understanding of the garment industry and the mechanics behind the fashion market. Co-founding Shevie has allowed Vivek to merge his love for art with his knowledge of traditional Indian embroidery and the avant-garde, capturing the pulse of the global fashion industry. To enhance his business acumen, Vivek recently completed the Owner’s and President’s Management Program at the Harvard Business School in 2018, and continues educating himself on the business-side functions of the fashion industry. Vivek drives the innovation and business aspects of the company, translating concepts from clients into tangible and commercially viable creations.
