Fashion – Enter Ltd Collaborates with Maison Velendra
Fashion-Enter Ltd’s (FEL) N17-based Creative Callings, supported by the Mayor of London and the European Union, is excited and delighted to announce its collaboration with the ground-breaking new design house, Maison Velendra.
Artistic Director Kaushik Velendra is rewriting the future of men’s tailoring with his future focused designs. Keeping his foundation deeply in the heart of tailoring and Indian craftsmanship, he amalgamates the traditions of tailoring with active-wear and accelerates this concept into a future sphere of men’s red carpet dressing.
Kaushik (pictured right) was able to establish his company after receiving an “Exceptional Talent Visa” in the UK and brings considerable flair and expertise from his training here at Central Saint Martins and previously in India.
This collaboration is about providing a hands-on learning experience in an atelier environment, where industry experts implement entrepreneurial mentorship and help young designers of the future, supported by Haringey Council; such as for example, local resident Marquel Williams who has already completed his studies at FEL’s Fashion Technology Academy and is now a student at Central Saint Martins. It will also be pioneering new sustainable ways of manufacturing that eliminate excess inventory in a “make it or miss out” discipline.
“Collaborations and mentorships are the key to success for any new designer and I would like to acknowledge Haringey Council and the GLA’s foresight in opening a state of the art Tailoring Academy for a future generation of tailors. It is the start of a new future of the manufacturing of tailoring,” explains Kaushik Velendra.
“We are so delighted to have Maison Velendra support our Tailoring Academy. Kaushik has a visa from the UK government for his exceptional talent, leading the way forward in fashion today for his menswear creations. Kaushik has the most incredible attention to detail within his bespoke tailoring designs, so for our learners to have the opportunity of being mentored by him is one unique opportunity!”Added Jenny Holloway, CEO, Fashion-Enter Ltd.
