Lalit & Sunita

Lalit's passion for creating is rooted in his childhood obsession with clothes, and 'dressing up'. His innate sense of style has brought him a long way since those childhood games and he is now regarded as one of the most successful designers for male couture.

His meteoric rise to success was far from easy. Lalit had to overcome several obstacles to achieve his dreams. He has always been a risk-taker, breaking out from the family profession to become a couturier at a time when designing was hardly considered a legitimate profession. Destiny brought him together with Sunita, who became his wife and business partner. Their marriage led to the inception of 'Lalit Jalan' an ethnic label for the high profile man of the '90s.

Their flair for design led to and shaped into Hunar, the Design studio, the first ever store for ethnic men's wear in Kolkata. Their entry into the competitive fashion industry marked a resurgence of Indian Ethnicity and the demand for ethnic male wear. Initially they were met with apprehension and scepticism by Kolkata's fashionistas. But together they won over critics with their unique experimentation with age-old tradition. They celebrated their success with the establishment of Hunan Forte. The curtain raiser to the national scenario followed with their first act in Mumbai's reputed studio Glitterati. Nationally acclaimed shows, immense media coverage and positive feedback led to Lalit and Sunita being featured in the annual Femina Book of Fashion exclusively for male trousseau.

Their collections are hallmarked with subtle, sombre tones of creams, peach, browns, mauves, and greens all creating a very mellow effect. The clothes are known for their intricate embroidery and the symbiosis of concepts and silhouettes on fabrics. The skilful combination of classic silhouettes gives their clothes a contemporary mould. The effort is painstaking; the fabric is scrutinized for every weave, texture drapability and ease of maintenance. Constant supervision at every evolving stage of production and experimentation gives a seal of quality to Lalit's creations. Every ensemble speaks of personal interpretation. Their work is subdued yet blatantly honest. Lalit Jalan's HUNAR escapes definition because of its abstract essence of uniqueness.

Their dream of creating globally acknowledged clothes became a reality when famous Japanese designer KENZO visited India, and asked Lalit to design his personal ethnic wardrobe.

In their own, quiet way, Lalit and Sunita have successfully spread their work to HUNAR at Kolkata, Ensemble in Mumbai & New Delhi, Ffolio in Bangalore & Chennai, and Portfolio in Cochin.
