To say she is a rising star would be an understatement…after less than fifteen years in the industry, designer Sushma Patel has already grown such a loyal following that her breathtaking clothes have brought new radiance to everything from acclaimed couture runways to adored television shows and all that lies in between.
Having sent her first collection down the runway in 1998 shortly after graduating from the esteemed Fashion Institute of Technology, Patel was an immediate success and has never looked back. Each season Sushma is consistently requested to present her new collection at renowned Fashion Week shows in over ten countries and is one of just a handful of designers that continually receives the privilege of adorning stars for red carpet events like the highly celebrated Bollywood Fashion and Music Awards.
In addition to sending her stunning pieces down catwalks in diverse destinations like Paris, Romania, Malta, Barbados, Dubai, Egypt and her native India; Patel was recently honored with the request to open Couture Fashion Week at the prestigious Waldorf-Astoria in one of the biggest fashion capitals in the world, the one and only New York City.
As the first to successfully bridge the gap between the striking beauty of traditional Indian garments and the incredible innovation of Western design, it is no wonder that Sushma Patel’s signature style has become highly coveted among industry leaders across the globe. Patel’s use of vibrant colors, opulent hand-picked fabrics and extraordinary embellishments inspired by her heritage, juxtaposed with modern approaches to cutting, draping and the impeccable ability to accentuate a woman’s beauty, has led her to become a favorite of trend-setting celebrities such as Sofia Ali Khan and Alex McCord. Her spectacular pieces, unmatched in design and quality, have become a wardrobe staple for fashion leaders around the world!
The unparalleled collections of Sushma Patel have spanned all categories from ornate caftans and elaborate jumpers to magnificent evening gowns and brilliantly lavish capes. Having been highlighted as a special invited designer on Fashion TV and showcased as an exclusive leader in couture, Patel is both excited and proud to announce her newest venture, a collection of accessories to perfectly compliment her exceptionally coveted clothing.
Sushma Patel’s meticulously handcrafted Indo-Western fusion collections can be found at her namesake boutiques in Atlanta, GA and Mumbai, India, as well as on the shelves of prominent high-end boutiques all over the world.
