Aparna Chandra (born 6 January 1971) is a fashion designer and stylist from India.
Chandra was born in January 6, 1971 in Delihi, India. She developed an interest early on watching the tailors employed by her mother, Asha, a designer of children's clothing. She went on to study fashion design at the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT). As a student she worked as an intern for influential Indian designer Rohit Khosla.
After graduation she launched an eponymous fashion line. It operated for ten years before she shut it down and began working as a stylist. The change was influenced by a lack of interest in her less ordained clothing. In 2015 Elle (India) recalled her designs from the era as notable "[n]ot for being outrageous, ostentatious or opulent, but for their easy simplicity. As a fashion stylist, she worked closely with the advertising industry, creating campaigns for a number of brands like Benetton, Ray Ban, Van Heusen and De Beers. In 2014, she returned to design as the head of clothing at Indian lifestyle brand Nicobar. The September 2018 launch of Aparna Chandra for Nicobar mark her first standalone collection in more than a decade.
