India’s first beach and resort wear designers, Shivan Bhatia and Narresh Kukreja, alumni of the National Institute of Fashion Technology, are an invincible team. To this day, the brand’s collections remain a unique alternative to conventional bridal dressing.
Although the talented duo started with swimwear and bridal collection, they soon followed it with creating resort wear and accessories. While Shivan is the design head and takes care of silhouette creation, Narresh is the creative director responsible for colours, prints and translation of design into campaigns. Today, the Shivan & Narresh brand is identified as India’s first luxury holiday brand.
Their designs are best known for varying silhouettes, colour combinations, striped maillots and subtle drapes in beach wear designs and styling that is very evident through their ever-expanding loyal clientele list. While their signature Bikini Sarees are all the rage, many actresses like Kareena Kapoor, Malaika Arora Khan and Bipasha Basu have been seen dazzling in them on the red carpets. Their global clientele includes Nicki Minaj, Dita Von Teese, Fergie, Padma Lakshmi and Selita Ebanks.
