'About Me', Journey Of Nisha JamVwal

Interior designer with an eponymous Label of the same name,
columnist, Craft Activist ...


Nisha has worn several hats - interior architect, couturier, art consultant , craft activist and philanthropist. She has lived, studied and worked in Japan, California, France, Australia and is actively involved in the world of design in India.


More recently she diversified into Fashion as an experiment in her journey in design....
Every experiment in her life she avers, has been...."a step in my journey of growth and self-discovery, a kaleidoscopic part of life that enriches the fabric of my work & existence. "

"Without these, life would be a meaningless transition from the womb to the tomb"

The NISHA JAMVWAL label has generated significant interest in a short span....

"Career and work have been a priority. Yet I work with a desire to bring issues to the forefront- with the peg of glamour, to help in whatever way I can to bring about some meaningful change in our society." says Nisha...
With this thought Nisha agreed to help and partner Khushii, the NGO in Bombay on their project 'India On Canvas'....
Nisha JamVwal, one minute is a society personna.....
.............and the next an unrelenting perfectionist professional, you never know what to expect from this edgy, prolific designer .......
Says Nisha of her 'art' and journey's-
"I drew and colored before I could write...... for me design , shapes, forms , have been attractive since I was three or maybe before even, I almost cannot see a space or fabric or canvas without my mind and vision clicking with ideas to enhance it to its aesthetic function in accordance with my vision. Sometimes there is an upsurge of ideas; I find it difficult to keep pace with my mind..............."
"Why must life compartmentalize itself into boxes. My art that has taken expression in in different media- interiors, writing, art, craft, pret and couture, designing brands and their entry into a competitive market"
Nisha has designed Residences, Airports, Beach Houses, Restaurants, Offices . ...
