He launched his women’s wear label ‘Sailex’ in 2008, with a runway debut at Lakmé Fashion Week’s Gen Next platform. Within a short span of time, Sailex has become a name to reckon with in women’s luxury prêt, with showings and exhibitions across the country.

His seemingly simple pieces are crafted with precision pattern cutting and exude an elegant sensuality.
