Philosophy 

 

The Manocha house style entails a supple silhouette with an optimal structure. A softly sculpted shoulder complements a defining nip at the waist. A high armhole without much drape at chest further accentuates the garment's contemporary feel. While some are about deconstruction, we are all about construction, without the need to overdo it. 

 

Each piece is reminiscent of Joanne Entwistle's notion of clothing as a situated bodily practice. Hence, our process begins with a candid consultation to fully understand your form and movement. 

 

Consultation

 

We take detailed measurements for comprehension of your posture and fit. You then choose the fabrics, buttons, linings and so forth. If you have a vision of your garment, well and good. If not, we collaborate on bringing that to life. Each article of clothing is a confluence of your idiosyncrasies, requirements and our expertise.
