What is couture mantra all about?
Couture Mantra is a luxury Indian Bridal and Evening wear brand. Each piece is designed by couturier, Kiran Lally. CM is Australia's first Indian Haute Couture brand. Initially, founded on the belief that Australians can shop luxury Indian wear locally. As CM evolved, it has now become a global brand.

As a child, Kiran looked up to her mother's love for dress making and textiles. As a result, Kiran aspired to have her own clothing brand one day. Initially, each sample was thoroughly checked by Kiran's mother. As CM grew, the brand now has a quality check, to ensure each garment is thoroughly checked.
Let's start from the beginning
Kiran Lally, the designer and founder of Couture Mantra, has always been fond of Indian ethnic wear. In 2014, Kiran was on a family vacation in India. Kiran was unable to find Indian wear which she could see herself wearing. As a result, Kiran decided to design all her garments herself. When she came back to Australia, the community appreciated her designs and encouraged her to pursue it further.
CM executed their first runway, The Couture Mantra Runway, in 2016. Their showstopper was Esha Deol. This show truly was revolutionary for the brand. As time went on, they have dressed several Bollywood actresses including Sana Khan, Mugdha Godse and Adah Sharma. Furthermore, CM has since been invited to display their collection at elite runways including Melbourne Spring Fashion Week and Fashion + Aid.
In 2019, CM opened their first store, which was another milestone for the brand. The store is located in the heart of Little India, Dandenong.
Couture Mantra is my expression and love for fashion - to design clothes which remind women of how beautiful, strong and confident they are.
