Travelling all the way from India to “reveal the beauty in all human beings” fashion pioneers, Parvesh Jai will make a bold and sexy statement in unusual ways at Vancouver Fashion Week tomorrow 😉 Specializing in Indian Ethnics to evening dresses and even swimwear, the artists have established a national reach throughout different parts of the world. A few prime achievements from their extensive list includes: creating costumes for various French Operas, sharing the ramp with fashion houses such as Armani and Luca Luca and conquering the runway at countless fashion weeks/events (Lakme Fashion Week, India Fashion Week, Pret-a-porter, WWD Magic, Dubai Fashion Week, Nolcha fashion week, Femina pret-a-porter, ethical fashion show, etc)
