The creator
Manisha Verma is the Creative Director and Founder of Marushika. Inspired by her home state in India, Manisha developed a passion for art and design at a young age. An accomplished Textile Designer with a master’s degree in Apparel Production and Merchandising Management, she drew inspiration from the diverse cultures she experienced across Japan, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait.

Manisha’s artistic spirit blossomed, intertwining with her fascination for the intricate tapestry of folk art. With each stitch, she wove stories of heritage and tradition, infusing her designs with soulful resonance. Her collections encapsulate a strong blend of folk art and modern western silhouettes, offering an experience of nature at its purest.

With a keen eye for detail, her creations are more than garments; they are a testament to the profound dialogue between the human spirit and nature.

The vision
“My designs for Marushika represent a physical manifestation of emotions and a connection to one’s spiritual side. I don’t design according to trends, but rather I aim to create them, bringing a new retrospective angle to the luxury fashion industry and revitalising the concept of ‘wearable art’.” Said Manisha Verma, Creative Director of Marushika. I am delighted to open Marushika’s first showroom in Dubai Design District and bring to life my collection which meshes the traditions and culture where I was born with the modern refinement of my new home in the UAE. My goal is simply to make women feel confident, smart, happy, and beautiful when wearing my designs.”
