Kaushik Velendra is a luxury label forging a new paradigm for menswear at the intersection of traditional tailoring and cutting edge innovation in materials, hardware and construction.
Kaushik Velendra is the first Indian-born graduate from the prestigious Master of Arts Fashion program at Central Saint Martins, London, which he completed with distinction in 2019. His graduating collection was one of the few chosen for CSM's highly selective MA Fashion Press Show during London Fashion Week in February 2019. His refreshing perspective on modern menswear garnered highly positive coverage from the fashion press and retail industry.
"Velendra demonstrated a new acceptance of sexy, or perhaps of human nature."
British Vogue, Anders Christian Madsen
"Kaushik Velendra's finely tailored pieces stood out. The Indian designer had worked in Bollywood as a costume designer before coming to London. "The whole collection is super-tailored and super-futuristic. I want to push the boundary of modern tailoring in every possible way," said Velendra."

"Sportswear, tailoring and new-age fabrications came together in designer Kaushik Velendra's menswear collection, which showcased at London Fashion Week this season"
Vogue India, Shalani Shah
"Kaushik Velendra topped his precise tailoring with moulded shoulder pieces, mini-couture capes."
BOF, Tim Blanks
"Velendra's collection at the Central Saint Martins MA showcase earlier this year was a hybrid of sportswear and high tailoring. He played with anatomy and elongated proportions to produce an all-black line of sculptural jackets and sleek trousers, introducing his futuristic new generation man."
Harpers Bazaar, Garima Gupta
