About

DAAIN clothing came out of a desire to dress in a more sustainable fashion, while staying true to a dark aesthetic. Second-hand is a good way to find sustainable darkly inclined clothes, but I wanted something more. Most of my items are one-of-a-kind pieces made from recycled materials. I also offer some designs that are made to order; for these I used only the finest organic, natural, sustainably produced fabrics. I aim to make clothes that are comfortable and easy to move in. I put pockets in as many of my dresses and skirts as I can, something sadly neglected in women’s fashion in general.

‘Daain’ means witch in Hindi. The witch archetype informs a lot of my designs. I envision her as a powerful woman who shapes her own destiny. She is resourceful and harnesses whatever elements she can find in her surroundings. All the while she honours the earth.

Some of my other inspirations are historical fashion, mythology, dark atmospheric music, nature, fantasy and dystopian stories.

    I do everything here at DAAIN. I've always loved creating things and love making clothes more than anything. Whenever I'm not making clothes I'm probably enjoying another creative hobby, wandering in the forest or at a metalcore show.
