Gargi Ghugare and Mrigini Iyer, the co-founders of G aur M decided to partner up and create a brand together while still in school. Their strong design aesthetic and close association with various cultures drew them together and proved to be a strong catalyst within their partnership. Both born in India, raised in the Middle East, and educated in Canada, Gargi and Mrigini represent a unique design sensibility that represents the life of a nomad. Inspired by shape, architecture, and colour, they are enthused by the notion that cross-cultural pollination results in warped standards of beauty. G aur M’s designs explore different aesthetic principles across cultures and fuse them with the modern silhouette.
