Masaba Gupta runs own label called as ‘House of Masaba’ and famous for imaginative & creative names she gives for each of her collections. Her journey started at the age of 19 when she applied for Lakme Fashion Week with the help of famous designer Wendell Rodricks. Her label is known for ethnic wear for women produced with silk, chiffon and cotton with modern embroidery work. She came into the news for her unique ‘Indianness’ used with a modern touch in her outfits.

Masaba Gupta has worked with well-known international brands like Maybelline New York and Levi’s for various projects. Recently, she launched a hijab-saree line prospecting Muslim women who want to flaunt Indian high-street fashion.
