About UsMy name is Divya Taimni and I am the founder, in-house designer and curator for Inaayat, a Dubai-based boutique that shares the beauty and vibrancy of Indian culture through lovingly curated fabrics, bespoke outfits, accessories, jewelry and more. Growing up in Mumbai and Delhi, fashion was a part of family tradition and connection. It was a form of celebration and pride in our culture and heritage. I’d watch my mother and grandmother spend hours at fabric stores, adore their traditional pashminas, excitedly design outfits for my cousins and me. They embraced our rich culture’s beauty by sharing it in their sartorial selections for themselves and loved ones.
This love for bringing people together through wearable art has stayed with me as I movedaround the world and lived in five different countries where I met and connected withinternational women from diverse cultures of their own. I developed a deep appreciation for myglobal identity and wanted to expand my heritage culture to include the modern interpretation of Indian designs.
This mission lead me to start Inaayat, as —at the time —a small, home boutique in California in 2009. I curated specific pieces in private collections for friends and family; finding true joy in bringing exquisite craftsmanship and high-quality fashion to the modern woman.
The name of my brand means “blessings”; and today, with the blessings of our patrons, our boutique has expanded to encompass a range of product offerings that suit every occasion and style preference.
Our boutique goes beyond ready-to-wear outfits: I love designing and creating bespoke pieces. These outfits are made from the highest quality fabrics with skilled craftsmanship that is then tailored to perfection.
With my keen eye for detail, design and the mix of traditional and contemporary culture; I am passionate about bringing Indian fashion to the forefront with contemporary influences that empower women to feel confident in sharing their identity through fashion. With my daughter, Nikita, joining my side in 2017 — we feel truly blessed to continue passing down the love of fashion from our family to yours.
I invite you to come celebrate Indian heritage with our diverse range of silhouettes andaccessories. It would be an honor to design your dream outfit for you! In staying true to ourglobal commitment, we ship worldwide and are always here to showcase your personal style preferences for special occasions!
With lots of love,
Founder, Curator and In-House Designer
