Gaurav Chabra Batch of 1997 – JD Institute of Fashion Technology
Gaurav Chabra Batch of 1997, Few stories in real life turn out the way fairy tales do. With the right amount of drama, surprises and glamour sprinkled in. Gaurav Chabra has lived one such life. Let’s rewind to where it all started. Financial conditions at home drew him to take up work while he was still in college. It might have seemed the end of the world for a kid. But
as luck would have it, he landed a job where he had to sketch for designers. He soon fell in love with his work. Putting in extra hours and most often adding value to the designers’ pieces of work. Thankfully, people in those days were a secure lot.
And obviously his talent was out there for everybody to see and appreciate! He soon got the opportunity to work with Diwan Sons. His sensibilities and craft started redefining the fashion protocol. Especially how men used to dress up for their weddings. Suddenly embroidered sherwanis burst out to capture all the limelight at the big fat Indian
weddings. And when you pick a Gaurav creation for your wedding, you can be sure that no one else has it. For one design of thread work adorns just one sherwani. A marriage a lifetime, here too.
At the Siyaram Designer Award Function in 1997, Gaurav bagged 3 of the 7 awards. Quite a feat for a rookie. Today his sherwanis are displayed in the spotlight at all major retail outlets under the brand name ‘Ohm’.
No fairytale can end without the princess, can it? Rashmi Chabra, a designer by profession is also his strongest supporter. Designing partner, his emotional anchor, most hard-to-please critic and a true friend. And together they make a perfect picture. The happily-ever-after kinds.
