The designer in Durazi is satisfied with the way his career has shaped in a decade in spite of being a one-man show who has laid strict restrictions on his creativity and career.

"I don't do ad campaigns, clothes for beauty queens or uniforms or display my garments at various fashion shows.I play the design game my way and I have got where I wanted to strictly by sticking to my straight and narrow road. I do everything myself including cutting every garment in my collection. I do not have assistants because I don't want to dilute my work. I want to guard my trade secrets close to my heart and yet I have managed to do everything I aspired for."

The designer who put Indian women into tailored jackets took a decade to make them a part of their wardrobe. Shahab Durazi has successfully carved a niche for himself when he returned from the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York in l989 hoping to create a new look for the Indian women.

From the broad heavy shoulders and narrow waist to give the Indian female torso a more slimming look Shahab Durazi who till 1993 made only businesswear, moved into formal evening garments in that year with his butterfly look using for the first time embroidery.

In 1995 he softened his collection silhouette even further moving into chiffon and organza and using embroidery to add textures to his fabrics rather than for ornamentation. By 1997 his black, white and grey look for autumn-winter had the typical Shahab Durazi touch remaining more classic rather than flamboyant.

For Durazi the year 2000 will mean an ultra chic and simple yet modern and very urbane image that will suit the lifestyles of the new millennium. My garments will be outstanding having the advantage of that sleek cutting edge." From daywear and formalwear for men and women I have also designed all the accessories for my collections."

Durazi has also turned into a more tolerant designer. There was a time when he designed for the svelte and slim woman fitting into 6-12 sizes. Today he has added on sizes 14 and 16.In the future Durazi would like to widen his base not only in sizes but also in collections.

Maybe it is because Shahab Durazi has done it all his way and not succumbed to popular demands that has made him a designer label women and men long to possess.
