Krishna Mehta is a stalwart when it comes to high-end fashion design in India. She has changed the landscape of men’s and women’s fashion at a time when others were too scared to go against the grain. This attitude of individuality and confidence extends into her daily life and also to her daughter Natasha. Natasha has been working with the Krishna Mehta brand while designing under her own label as well. She is also handling the family's export business which gives her a great excuse to travel the world!
