Hemant Trevedi is one of the brightest and leading versatile designers. He is a fashion stylist, choreographer, design professor and undoubtedly, one of India's foremost and most important fashion designers. He graduated from the Australian Technical Institute of Fashion Design and furthered training at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York. International labels have pursued him and yet he returned to India in early 1980 as one of the first professionally qualified fashion designers.
Today, Hemant is Fashion Director at Sheetal, India's leading fashion store. He has also been associated as design professor at S.N.D.T University at Mumbai
, India for the past 20 years. Trivedi's contribution to the Indian fashion scene cannot be denied. Being one of the first's professionally qualified designers in India, he has a feel for the industry and its growth.
Trivedi has presented some of the most breath taking fashion presentations both in India and overseas, including countries such as U.K., U.S.A., China, Egypt, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, U.A.E., and the Far East.
His most impressive artistic direction has been seen at the Femina Miss India pageants for which he is in charge of choreography and grooming of the pageant delegates. He has created the winning wardrobes for several former Beauty Queens and particularly for Miss World 1995 Aishwarya Rai
and Miss World 1998 Diana Hayden, who besides countless others, remains his most favourite client and the present Miss World 2000 Priyanka Chopra
He has also launched the careers of hundreds of fledging models and turned many into virtual super-stars. His road to career way has been an inordinately eclectic one, forging into the nook and corners of the associated area of fashion a penumbra, a voyage of self-discovery that finally culminated in a retreat to base-fashion design. According to this stalwart of Indian fashion style is something that speaks of ones personality and life style something that is generated by the individual attitude and not an influenced one. While he does not seek the limelight, it is equally difficult to ignore him. Some fashion critics bear the notion that Hemant nourishes the uncanny ability to predict a "look" well ahead of time. His creations have walked the journey of uncertainty to become trendsetters and he has a faithful clientele to prove it.
