According to an article in Reflection magazine, Richa Aggarwal, an ex-student of Winchester School of Art, is now India's next big Fashion Designer.

The article describes Richa as '[a] young designer with a earthy sense of style' and comments that 'her designs are simply beautiful and well thought out in detail.'

From launching her own label in London in 2011, things have progressed quickly for Richa, with recognition from Vogue India and Harper's Bazaar. She is now based in New Delhi and her designs are going from strength to strength.

Looking back on her time with WSA, John Hopkins, Head of Department Fashion and Textiles at WSA remembered her well. “I am very pleased to hear of Richa’s success,” he is quoted. “She has built on her graduating collection at WSA to extend her theme further and celebrate the vibrant styles and ingenuity of street wear that can be found in India”.
