Varma – A bit of spice
‘Style Guru’ Suneet Verma has been a name to reckon
with in India’s fashion circles over the past 15 years. Suneet’s
lunge into the world of fashion began after he graduated from the
London School of Fashion in 1986, followed by enriching stints with
couturiers Nikole Farhi in London and Yves Saint Laurent, Paris.
Suneet has been involved with many activities enveloping almost
every perceivable aspect of the concept of fashion ranging from
the revival of weaving and embroidery to researching and developing
couture embroidered garments for international design houses like
Donna Karan, Carolina Herrera, Mary McFadden and Nicole Miller.
Suneet has done
solo shows in London, Paris, New York, Hong Kong, Davos, Dubai,
Bangkok and Jakarta. His first ever prêt collection ‘Le
SPICE’ was launched at the LIFW 03, Mumbai. The essence of
Le SPICE is in the spirit of the Suneet Varma woman, who is sassy,
sexy and spicy! The clothes are an amalgamation of Suneet’s
look developed over the last fifteen years with his couture and
collection clientele and the need for a more affordable, youthful
yet stylish line.
