Masaba Gupta

Masaba Gupta (born 1989) is an Indian fashion designer. Her parents are West Indian cricketer Viv Richards and Indian actress Neena Gupta. Gupta grew up in Mumbai. At the age of 8, she thought of being a tennis player but she dropped the idea after the age of 16. She was passionate about dance and music. She wanted to join Shiamak Davar's dance group after learning dance from him, but her mother recommended against it. She then took up a course in music in London. She did not complete the course and returned to India. Later she joined Shreemati Nathibai Damodar Thackersey Women's University. At 19, she applied for Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai with the support from Wendell Rodricks. She named her first collection Kattran (English:miniature bits of fabric). She is noted for unconventional prints along with womanish drapes and silhouettes. DNA said her work has "a unique Indianness in a very modern context", citing her "Tamil script sarees and jackets" and the way she uses of cotton and muslin.
