Rachana Reddy Accessories
Rachana Reddy Accessories was born out of the creative passion of bringing forth avant-garde fashion accessories, artful concepts & detailing to life. A graduate of the Cordwainers- London College of Fashion, her travels & interesting assignments in the fashion industry have helped add to the distinctiveness of her designs.

Moving away from heavily ornamented & embellished concepts, her accessories aim to blend tradition with contemporary luxury for the versatile new age woman. Conceptualized, designed by Rachana, the clutches are handcrafted by skilled local artisans.

Combining her passions for travel and glass, she has attended workshops in different parts of the world – Italian techniques of working with glass in Italy, glass blowing in Oslo, art pieces with fused glass at the Corning Museum of Glass in New York, and also attended workshops in Perth, Australia.
Anjali uses traditional glass working methods and materials to create fine and exclusive pieces for personal adornment and accessories for the home.
