Designer ZUBAIR KIRMANI
Born and brought up in the divine Valley of Kashmir, Zubair he grew up under shade of Chinar trees. He tried to meddle with science, engineering but none was able to sustain his creative instincts, and finally he pursued fashion. Quintessential (BOUN) Chinar had always inspired him as it has fuelled lot of Poetic imagination, the name BOUNIPUN (chinar leaf) with its ever changing colors had left an indelible impression on him way back in 90’s and was finally adopted in 2005 when the label “BOUNIPUN by ZUBAIR KIRMANI” was launched. The brand primarily focuses & has conceived an inimitable signature style that fuses together both contemporary minimalism and classic heritage from his roots. The importance of crafted detailing is rediscovered in his avant-garde collection, which keeps improving upon rather than making rash changes every season. The Brand’s forte lies in sophisticated women’s western line and men’s fashion formals.
After a successful first season with KFW, Zubair Kirmani is back in Kolkata with menswear and womenswear in his simplistic style. Jackets for men promise to have interesting textures and expect to see bandhgalas and also shorts and T-shirts on the ramp! For her, there will be dresses, skirts, tops and shorts.
