It’s not often that an Indian designer successfully breaks out into the international fashion scene, but Aneeth Arora, an up-and-comer from New Delhi has done just that. At just 24 years old, Arora founded her brand Péro in 2009, a name which means “to wear” in Marwari, the local language of Rajasthan region where she grew up. In 2012, Péro was chosen as the winner of Vogue India’s first ever Fashion Fund competition, further launching Arora into the spotlight.

Arora is inspired by time-honored Indian textiles and modernized takes on traditional styles from regions all over the country. Pieces are naturally dyed, with fabrics being produced on classic handlooms, then hand detailed with floral embroidery and delicate finishings. Vogue dubbed the line “frumpy chic,” but we’d prefer adjectives like flowing, heritage, and voluminous.
The entire collection is suited for spring. Shop linen trousers and gauzy dresses to prep for sunnier days. See our whole Péro lineup here.
