NBNW Profile 6.jpg

NORBLACK NORWHITE's philosophies develop from paying respect to the past, questioning the present and creating for the future. Raised in Toronto, Mriga Kapadiya and Amrit Kumar moved to India in 2009 to explore their Indian roots. Traveling across the country they were exposed to the many disappearing art forms and artisan communities. NBNW was born out of a desire to re-interpret these ancient practices of textile design, while bringing together their worlds by mashing up their love for Michael Jackson, 90's R n B and all things old and gold. Having been featured in Wallpaper, Asos, Fader, Fashion Television, I-D Magazine, Vogue India and Vogue Italia, they were also selected by Frida Gianinni (Ex - Creative Director of Gucci) as her favourite young designers from India for the Grazia Young Fashion Awards in 2012. Exploring the grey space, NBNW is partly an anthropological experiment, part art and part fashion. Norblack Norwhite is more than a label, it’s a way of life for their loyal followers around the world. Committed to their unique style and vision for a better world their designs are confident and playful.
