Sustainable Fashion with a Conscience

Saloni Shrestha, a fashion designer with over 11 years of experience, specializes in designing women’s ready-to-wear collections. A fashion design graduate from Parsons, The New School, Saloni is trained in couture and ready-to-wear.

Saloni is a native of the Himalayas who has lived and traveled across various continents, which she says is a key source of inspiration and influence. Growing up surrounded by nature, diverse culture, music, vibrant textiles, and bold colors are all embraced in her creative process.

AGAATI is derived from the Sanskrit word Agati means "Origin", arrival or arising. Each one-of-a-kind design is crafted by either Saloni herself or a network of skilled artisans who work with AGAATI, ensuring that fair labor practices, ethical treatment and respect for artisanal work is woven into each garment.

Their approach to sustainably sourcing materials has four key dimensions: natural fibers, zero waste philosophy, zero toxic chemicals and vegan principles.
