VIR SHETE | About
Born and raised in Mumbai, with a stellar international education and opulent cultural exposure, Vir Shete has managed to build a vast body of work within various inter-related creative capacities; primarily, design, make-up, hair, styling, editing, promotion, creative direction and consultancy.
Having started freelancing as a make-up, hair and fashion stylist in 2008, Vir relocated to London in 2010 with a strong work ethic, directional point of view and determined drive to push the boundaries of fashion, design, beauty and culture; graduating from the prestigious London College of Fashion in 2014 with a BA (Hons) Fashion Design Technology (Womenswear) and the launch of his debut collection – (In)Equality Autumn/Winter 2014 / Ready-to-Wear.
Vir’s aesthetic – avant-garde ready-to-wear – is a combination of fashion-forward and statement-making yet functional and practical, sophisticated and minimalistic yet bold and edgy – an absolute reflection of his distinct identity, multifaceted skill set and exuberant personality that has earned him a reputation as one of the youngest noted talents across fashion and beauty, both domestically and internationally.
Currently working as Creative Director for Japanese fashion house, JULIAN VIERA, in Tokyo, and based between Tokyo, London and Mumbai, Vir continues to pursue a 360° approach to fashion and beauty, working in-house, as well as freelancing between the capitals across all capacities.
