The beginning…
While studying at Applecross Senior High School, Perth, Australia, Hemant chose to excel in Textile Design as an elective. Post that, he studied fashion design at the Fashion Institute Of Technology, Western Australia. He then returned to India in 1979 as India’s first Internationally qualified Fashion Designer. His career track has been an eclectic one, venturing into every related area of the industry. Although international labels have pursued him, Hemant chose to remain in India and make a significant contribution to the growth of the Indian fashion industry.
Hemant Trevedi as a Brand
Having been in the fashion industry since the early 1980s, Trevedi has worked closely with several clothing & textile companies as a senior design consultant. He has also been the Executive Fashion Director at Sheetal Design Studio (India’s fashion plaza). In 2021, he launched his eponymous label under luxury fashion house Purple Style Labs. The designer’s philosophy has always been to create elegant & timeless works of art in clothing, while still being financially accessible, which essentially makes the wearer feel eternally special. Clothes that can be worn time and time again without losing their charm is something that the brand values the most.
