GQ India Tailoring Special
Two Point Two was founded in 2017, soon after Anvita Sharma returned to Delhi after finishing her masters in fashion design from Istituto Marangoni in Paris. With just five fully finished garments in her arsenal, she applied for the Lakmé Fashion Week’s GenNext programme and was selected—much to her surprise— which led to her first show in Mumbai. Every season since then, Two Point Two has pushed boundaries, experimenting with silhouettes, colour, embroidery, and fabric. The brand has recently started using sustainable fabrics made out of rose petals, lotus, and orange peel. However, the core pillar is to advocate for diversity, inclusivity, and individuality. “I wanted the brand to be much more than just pretty clothes,” says Sharma.

“People are forever changing, and life is changing.” As our world continues to shift and adapt to the global pandemic, a symbiosis emerges between many parts of life. People adapt, and so too do the structures that surround them. This new project, fittingly titled ‘Symbiosis’, celebrates this newfound interconnectedness between the many facets of the world.
Through ‘Symbiosis’, the team behind this series hope to weave themes of old and new, capturing a “mutualistic relationship between organic living arts, working in harmony with inanimate artwork”.

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
“Face and embrace that chaos instead of hiding from it.”
“This philosophy is very personal to me as it speaks about my emotional journey. I read somewhere: “the wind extinguishes a candle but energises fire”. So I decided to be like that fire instead and be anti-fragile. I chose to embrace the turmoil and manoeuvre it to my advantage. It is only then, that one achieves growth and perspective.” says designer Anvita Sharma

Not Just A Label
Two Point Two as a brand is Agender and aims to create a third identity which stands for neither of the binaries and yet for both. So we incorporate the colors, details and silhouettes which might be categorically considered feminine or masculine and we form an amalgamation of both, thus blurring the line differentiating the two.
We understand and accept that anatomy differs among the genders but Two Point Two believes in uniting and celebrating these differences instead of restricting people based on them.
Platform Creative Lifestyle
Designer Anvita Sharma of Two Point Two Studio was never someone who indulged in pretend play of being a doctor, teacher or a cook as a child — she would custom design clothes for her friends and would treat them as her customers. Hailing from a family of doctors and professors, she began her journey with Economics and Finance, but it never felt right to her. What followed was a Masters in Fashion Design from Istituto Marangoni in Paris. Anvita’s journey with Two Point Two started with a very succinct question, one that we ought to ask ourselves too.
As the boundaries between menswear and womenswear blur, there is a new school of designers taking over the contemporary fashionscape who focus on the individual and not their gender, culture, race, or size. One such label is Delhi-based Two Point Two by Anvita Sharma.
An all-inclusive, sustainable, and anti-conformist label, it aims to create an agender narrative.

Two Point Two’s Gender-Fluid Designs Are Boldly Blurring The Binary
When designer Anvita Sharma of Delhi-based Two Point Two Studio started her journey in fashion, one question was at the centre of her work, “Why is it that certain silhouettes and cuts are meant for menswear or womenswear, and why separation in an era where gender equality is the way to go?” Launched in 2017, Two Point Two is Built is a design and styling house that stands for gender-agnostic anti-fashion that’s built on the foundation of breaking the gender binary and catering to the entire gender spectrum.
