Artisan Trunkshow: Harshita Lohia

Stop by to see how these one-of-a-kind pieces come to life and learn more about Harshita’s process. Each creation starts with thoughtfully created designs. Carefully chosen colors and final designs are then printed or embroidered to enhance the wearable piece of art. The inspiration for Harshita’s designs and colors comes from elements of nature, man made structures, symbols of Indian culture and simple geometrical figures and her choice of high quality material includes chiffon, crepe, georgette and charmeuse silk.

Bio: Inspired by her grandmother in Kolkata, India, Harshita Lohia took to craft and arts at the early age of ten. Belonging to the sixth generation of the Chamong tea family, business skills came naturally to Harshita. Her early interest was making and selling cards and envelopes for weddings. At age thirteen her father gave her a set of paint brushes and a wide variety of paints and from that moment Harshita developed her serious interest in fine arts. At age fifteen she held her first solo exhibition in Chitrakoot Art Gallery, Kolkata followed by a solo exhibition in Singapore at seventeen. In 1997, Harshita traveled to Chicago for summer school at the Art Institute of Chicago and a year later enrolled into Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia. After finishing her BFA in textile design she went on to finish her Masters in Digital Printing from Philadelphia University. Harshita created Harshita Designs to carry on her mission of creating wearable art and original accessories. Her collections represent her rich heritage and her sensitive way of blending east and west.
