Aparna Chandra (born 6 January 1971) is a fashion designer and stylist from India.

Chandra was born in January 6, 1971 in Delihi, India.[1][2] She developed an interest early on watching the tailors employed by her mother, Asha, a designer of children's clothing.[3] 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.[4]

After graduation she launched an eponymous fashion line. It operated for ten years before she shut it down and began working as a stylist.[3] The change was influenced by a lack of interest in her less ordained clothing.[5] 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.[6] 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.[4] In 2014, she returned to design as the head of clothing at Indian lifestyle brand Nicobar.[6] The September 2018 launch of Aparna Chandra for Nicobar mark her first standalone collection in more than a decade.[3]
