India’s premier design label,
Satya Paul, has appointed Rajesh Pratap Singh as the chief creative director for the brand. In his role, Singh will oversee artistic direction for all
Satya Paul collections for women and men and present his first in Fall/Winter 2020-21. Singh’s appointment at Satya Paul embarks an important milestone for the brand.
A critically acclaimed designer with expertise across menswear, womenswear and accessories, Singh has, over the years, created a unique signature style that subtly draws from his Indian roots to craft artisanal garments that stand apart due to their careful detailing and international silhouettes. While he combines the modern with the traditional in an understated design aesthetic, his clothes have a global appeal yet remain passionately Indian, qualities he shares with the house of Satya Paul.
“Rajesh Pratap Singh is one of the most talented designers of our time. His eye for detail and exceptional creative nerve that blends modernism and tradition especially holds significance to the world of Satya Paul,” a Satya Paul spokesperson said.
“I have great respect for the brand’s heritage and creative integrity of the design house. And I’m particularly excited for the potential of this brand,” said Rajesh Pratap Singh, who has worked in the fashion industry in India and Italy before introducing his own line of clothing in 1997. “We will look to reference its archives and history while drawing parallels to modernity.”
Founded in 1985 by Satvinder Paul Nanda, Satya Paul is one of India’s leading premier sari design labels with a well-established global presence. With print as its ethos, the brand has now moved on to explore accessories such as ready to wear, handbags, scarves and stoles, ties, pocket squares and cufflinks that hold universal appeal as well.
