About the Event
SHIFTING PARADIGMS WITH KARAN BERRY : Masterclass by Karan Berry, Co-founder of Design Label Karleo.
"Being involved in a good mix of varied design work is what keeps me going, creatively.”
Karan Berry was more intrigued by design in general before the fashion bug caught him. After being involved in several fashion-related projects, he decided to pursue a post-graduate diploma in fashion. After a stint in menswear at an export company, Karan even tried his hand at visual merchandising and worked with Spykar Jeans for four years. He also worked independently on the side, creating bridal trousseaus for women, all along developing a fondness towards footwear design. This took him to the London College of Fashion to pursue an Advanced Diploma In Cordwainers Footwear Design. A year later, Karan was back in Mumbai, working as a consultant, for Spykar Jeans, as well as Tata, who were planning on starting a line of footwear. It was then that he began to work towards co-creating a brand of footwear and accessories, called AKA Bespoke. Over the last few years, Karan has pursued another post-graduate course in Aesthetics, and he has associated with educational institutes like Symbiosis, SNDT, NIFT, Wigan And Leigh College Of Fashion, among others, in various capacities. After having worked in several areas of design, when the opportunity to create a fashion label with Leon Vaz arose, their seamless working relationship made him grab it. And that is how Karleo came about.
Launched Mr Berry in 2019 a brand which is an old school letter in this new age world that simply reminds us to pause and reflect on the little hidden nuances within the flowing notes of life. Mr Berry believes in the conception of recycling and up-cycling. It is a sustainable brand that can convert anything from clothing, interiors, accessories etc to look trend and modern by using waste materials and recycling them. A conversation that began as a blog, initiated in style, fashion, lifestyle out of observations, details, skill sets, and most importantly love.
