Describe your label with its Signature style : Co-founded by designer friends Karan Berry and Leon Vaz, Karleo was an idea that came from the likeness in their design sensibilities and the synchrony that they found between their work, when working together on certain projects. They both had the idea of combining the rich aesthetics of Indian culture with a western approach to design. And that led to creating pieces that offered an Indian clientele the same quality and design standards that are upheld by leading international couture labels.
With the idea of creating outfits for special occasions, the design philosophy at Karleo is that of contrasts—taking simple pieces of clothing or elements from our day-to-day lives and lending them an exclusive definition through rich textures, embroidery and detailing of various kinds. Drawing inspiration from things that are taken for granted, Karelo’s designs reflect a renewed perspective. The garments juxtapose opposing elements, seamlessly blended to create a kind of harmony that liberates them from the confines of the obvious.
At Karleo, trends are not followed blindly. Each garment has a personality of its own, which draws heavily from the personality of its wearer. Karleo’s clients are treated as a part of the creation process. Their ideas and personal vision for outfits for their special occasions are as important to the designers as the quality of the craftsmanship that constructs the outfits.
