Deepak Perwani is a fashion designer par excellence. He was born in 1963 in Mirpur Khas. He got his education from St. Patrick’s Technical School. He started by designing men’s apparel. He reinvented the sherwani; the traditional attire of the bridegroom in the Sub Continent.
Men and boys who at first were reluctant to wear a sherwani now made a beeline for it especially if it was designed by Perwani. Perwani was encouraged by the response from the people and continued to make waves with his trendy yet traditional designs. Perwani then turned his attention towards women’s clothes and the women’s collection proved to be a success too.
Perwani’s outlets can be found in Karachi, Lahore, New York, Dallas, Dubai and London. Three times winner of the Lux Style Awards for Men’s Designs, Perwani has achieved success and fame in a short span of time. He has participated in many fashion shows outside Pakistan and has won laurels for his country.
Perwani is proud of Pakistan’s rich culture and you can often see the glimpses of our rich heritage in his designs. Perwani is also known for creating the largest “kurta” of the world. He is involved with the AHAN project which helps the poor women in rural Sindh. Perwani also stepped into the world of acting. He acted in two movies; Kadoorat in 2013 and Punjab Nahi Jaungi in 2017.
Perwani was chosen as a “cultural ambassador to China and Malaysia. He has represented Pakistan in a number of countries of the world and is truly the “Pride of Pakistan.” He has recently created the world’s largest kurta. The kurta weighs 800 kg, is 101 feet tall and 59 feet 3 inches wide. It took a team of 50 professional tailors 30 days to make it. The Guinness World Records have certified the entry.
