Time magazine, in its Special Report on India (March 25, 1996) profiled Rohit Bal as ‘India’s Master of Fabric and Fantasy.’ The regard he commands among the top echelons of Indian fashion is authorized by a discerning, high profile clientèle, that includes some of India’s biggest names in the media, film, fashion and corporate world.
He is intensely concerned with design as an art form, and draws upon history, fantasy and folklore to create his masterpieces. Fashion pundits even credit him for setting the trend for every season, so wholly does he seem to understand the psyche of the target consumer. His fashion is intelligent and studied, imaginative and inspired.
Graduating from New Delhi’s St. Stephen’s College with a first class (Hons.) degree in History, the compulsive designer worked for a few years with his brother’s export company. In 1990, he created his first line, traditional designer wear for men, and the rest is history.
The 34-year-old fashion designer’s sense of aesthetics is finely honed, and each of his creations is handcrafted to perfection, with meticulous attention to detail. He has access to the best materials and workmanship in the industry. From villages where craftsmen weave magic, to factories where men sit with sewing machine, from small exclusive shops in posh localities, to glitzy malls where people jostle for space- Rohit Bal truly remains our fashion guru.
