Unconventional jewels, extraordinary women
The conception of The Outliers, Isharya’s latest launch, started with thinking about its inspiration. We contemplated for days and couldn’t help but think of women—young, old, contemporary, powerful, and timeless—who have consistently broken the glass ceiling without fearing the road less traveled. These are the trailblazers of today—and will remain so years from now. Read further to know more about who they are and how they became a part of the Isharya universe.
RUTH BADER GINSBURG
A feminist icon and popularly known as RBG on the Internet, Ginsburg was the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court. The pioneering legal mind advocated for equal treatment of the sexes. Needless to say, she created history. Her powerful dissenting opinions earned her unprecedented stardom and this is exactly why we were inspired by her for our latest collection The Outliers.

Some have described her as the greatest tennis player to ever live. She’s a sports phenomenon that the world hasn’t seen in the last century with 21 Grand Slam singles titles all while she has endured the oft-repeated critiques on her physical appearance. Serena Williams is the indisputable queen of the tennis court. And, we couldn’t help but agree.

A true Avant-garde, Yoko Ono, a multimedia artist, singer, songwriter, and activist, has always defied conventions. She has lived and thrived outside the cultural constructs unapologetically and this is why we love her at Isharya.

Frida Kahlo wasn’t just any other Mexican painter who liked to create self-portraits. She’s the iconic artist whose work is still deemed searingly relevant and soulful many years later. Through her work, Kahlo offers personal and societal commentary, both subtle and overt. If her clothing embraced her cultural identity, her signature unibrow and her wispy mustache challenged conventional beauty standards. She is, quite truly, an outlier who became a global icon.
