Amanda Marion Dyall was born and raised in Chennai, India. She spent her formative years studying at the Harrington House School, Church Park and Stella Maris College. By the time she was 21 she was a Bachelor of Fine Arts and looking for a fashion school. When the National Institute of Fashion Technology, opened its first center in South India, they chose Chennai, and Amanda chose them. NIFT gave her a sound grounding in the intricacies of Fashion Designing. With her Art studies complimenting her Fashion sense, she graduated with honors from NIFT in 1998.

Art and Fashion have always fascinated Amanda…”There is something exhilarating about the art of fashion…the art of dressing others. It is a sociological way we humans have invented to communicate to others”, says Amanda. She knows that deep down we all want to communicate with others; we want to tell them if we are feeling happy, sad, sexy or fashionable. And so many times we do that through our clothes. Amanda knows…Fashion is her calling.

From being designer at SWEAR and NAMA ( Bangalore) to being Manager – Merchandising for TESCO Sourcing India (Bangalore),sourcing garments from India, Sri Lanka & Bangadesh for the UK, Ireland and much of Europe; Amanda has had a very exciting and rewarding career. She taught part time at Nift, Bangalore and at the Shristi School of Design, Bangalore. After a 5-year work experience in the corporate world, Amanda started her own labels “Amanda” and “Amanda Bachalli”. She has since then had many fashion shows, many reviews and more importantly – some extremely satisfied customers.

A visit to Amanda’s studio in Bangalore can be intoxicating. The colors and textures of material upon material…from linen to lycra…cotton to chiffon…. everything will tempt your senses. This is where structure, fit and form take shape; how a mere thought can be transformed in a piece of clothing…and above all how that piece of clothing can make you smile!
