India was born in London, England, and comes from both British and design royalty. Her father was famed interior decorator David Hicks, and her mother is Lady Pamela Hicks, whose father was the last viceroy of India, hence her name.

Her godfather is the Prince of Wales and India was a bridesmaid at his wedding to Lady Diana.

In 2015, after a decade of designing collections in partnership with companies such as Crabtree & Evelyn, India launched her eponymous lifestyle brand. Her exclusive collection of accessories, bath & body, fine fragrance, handbags and luggage is sold through a network of entrepreneurial women either by Get Togethers in the home or online.

India lives on a small island in the Bahamas with her partner and their five children. She graduated from the New England School of photography, and shortly after began her modeling career with Ralph Lauren. She has produced three lifestyle books, with a fourth due out in Spring 2018. India has always made bold life choices that inspire women to join her in the pursuit of an extraordinary life.
