About Us

When you wear a House of Tomar outfit, you wear a story.

House of Tomar is a line of unique, distinct pieces that experiment with bold design elements and audacious combinations. Forged by a pair of sisters, the gates to the House of Tomar (HOT) have swung open for a legion of independent women.

Women who don’t censor themselves, women who aren’t afraid of being too much.

HOT began as a nascent idea in 2015 and has since scaled to become a fashionable reality. One that is as ambitious as the women we design for. The HOT collection is for every woman who is unafraid to tell her tale, who sips on her mimosas and spills her opinion without apology. At HOT, we design for women who are ready to make decisions and even, make some mistakes. Sometimes epic tales begin with reckless bravery. We design for reckless bravery, in specific, and for courageous leaps and big moves. Each garment has a story woven straight into the material by way of a never-seen-before print in a never-worn-before style. With silhouettes that reflect bold cuts and dresses that can take on anything, even as many as 120 rivets, we don’t design for ‘good girls’.

We design for women who have a story to tell and a statement to make.

Are you ready to make yours?

About the Founders

We know who we are

Devika Tomar, the creative half, and Mallika Tomar, the business half, are putting together a whole story through their prints and cuts & sleeves and skirts. Devika, with her degree in Fashion Designing from Pearl Academy and her apprenticeship with Masaba Gupta, is looking to reinvent the way women look at fashion. Instead of designing for the male gaze, she’s changing the game to make it about the women themselves.

Mallika pursued a masters in Fashion Management from NIFT where she saw first-hand that the Indian fashion market needs a makeover. Together, they’re putting storytelling at the heart of HOT collection.

Along with Mallika and Devika, Hardik Chauhan has brought his own business acumen to the venture. With an MBA in Media Management, it’s no wonder he’s at the helm of the sales and finance teams at HOT. Reflections of all their journeys have been embedded into the HOTONOMIST style.

Their brainchild, House of Tomar, is a unit of Agra’s esteemed AVS Group. With more than a decade’s worth of history, the company serves as the steady backbone for their young vision. The numerous national award-winning company has a cross-continental presence and a humbling array of CSR initiatives that set the context for the integrity HOT leads with.

But at first, the founders began with a central question.

We know who we are. We’ve found out the hard way, the fun way.

But importantly – Who are you? Who is the woman we’re designing for?

You are not perfect, you’re not fearless.

But you are something else: you are a messy masterpiece in progress.

With that clarity, HOT’s lines are rife with comfortable clothing in which you can easily kick ass and look good while doing it. HOT’s signature stylish cuts and passionate prints are all about storytelling and being bold. After all, who says you can’t have the cake and eat it too?

You certainly can have the signature HOTONOMIST cut and rock it too.
