Shilpa’s mehendi designs are an extension of 35 years of creative passion and tradition that started in Mumbai and continues in the USA. She was born to a business family where the women had a passion for the creative arts, which culminated into a prosperous career from a very young age. With Shilpa being the youngest of 5 siblings, the tradition began with the eldest sister making mehendi design her business at a very young age, even before graduating from her textile designing education. Through her extensive career she has been part of some of some of the biggest wedding celebrations in India, including major business magnates and celebreties, and today has become one of the leading and in demand mehendi artist.
Shilpa caught on to this creative outlet and began helping her sisters, before branching out on her own, designing traditional and modern Indian wedding trousseaus, dresses etc for both men and women. Her dress designing business flourished many years before she got married and settled in the USA. Here she decided to rejuvenate her creative skills and pursue her own business in mehendi/henna design. She was quickly able to establish herself as a leading mehendi designer for weddings, engagements, parties and bat mitzvahs, among others. She has become a well known name in wedding circles due to her exquisite and original mehendi designs.
Apart from family occasions, Shilpa is a regular at public events such as an event for breast cancer awareness (at Patterson), Macy’s store sale evens, the NJ annual ballon festival to name a few.
