Know Us More
We’re Eight Hour Day, a creative studio that
loves to learn, collaborate and create.
We, the duos designer ‘Payal & Zinal’, graduated from Symbiosis Institute of Design, Pune in April 2016.
After winning the best degree project awards from the college, they got selected in the Top 5 GenNext designers in India Runway Week A/W2016.
The label- Payal & Zinal achieved an overwhelming success through debut collection in 2016 which was all about Androgyny Fashion.
Garments are a tour-de-force- a performance, a larger than life story. This story is framed with striking embroidery and surface ornamentation, based on fabrics which are simple in their own way but become so much more on mannequins. We veer away from Minimalism as we merge our experimentation with colors and textures. In between the layers of fabrics, one will find prints ornamented with eccentric details. Ours is a tale of amalgamation, of mixtures, of compounds, of fusion, of concoction.
Some of our unique collection drew Bollywood’s attention as well. The beautiful actress Vidya Balan was captured wearing Payal & Zinal’s Khadi cotton saree and Emerald green jacket. Actresses like Sana Khan and Adha Sharma were also adorning their clothes.
At the age of 23 & 22, duos designers have first label outlet in Baroda and also own the rack at the multi designer store called AJILIYAA- Surat.
