His brand attracts well-known influencers and celebrities from around the Asian diaspora thanks to his timeless aesthetics that are influenced by bygone times. The traditional South Asian wedding look has been updated by his company to include a combination of elegant and edgy looks that draw onlookers with each step each model takes.
