Co-founded by designer friends Karan Berry and Leon Vaz, Karleo is a brand of demi-couture garments, focusing on evening wear, bridal ensembles, and accessories. With the festive season around the corner, Karleo’s mesmerising Bridal Collection titled ‘Garden of Eden’ promises to make special occasions magical and extremely beautiful.

Guests were seen appreciating the high-fashion pieces created by the designer-duo over fine wine and gourmet delicacies.

Karleo is a brand of demi-couture garments founded in March 2013, having an established clientele of international labels like Armani, Valentino, Marchesa and Ralph Lauren. The designers have worked on custom bridal ensembles and other wedding-related garments, red carpet outfits, as well as a wide range of headpieces and other accessories. Their work is materialised through their team of skilled artisans and craftsmen, who specialise in handcrafted detailing and embroidery for high-fashion pieces. Among their initial projects was their work with Bangkok-based business tycoon Nishita Shah, for her wedding season wardrobe. Karleo has also designed for celebrities like Simi Garewal, Sonali Bendre, and Sandeepa Dhar.

Karleo promises to provide with spec-sheets, a virtual trial of the outfit, as well as a mock garment for every outfit they make, so as to ensure that the final product is exactly to the clients’ liking. With the final product, the clients also get a complete design file, including the sketches, the fabric and other material samples, swatches, etc. Karleo is a brand that provides the same attention to detail as any red-carpet gown worn by a celebrity and it is that very attention to detail that is carried forward and observed in the service that the brand provides to each of its customers.
