PRIA KATARIA PURI
Among the original proponents of Indian 'Nouvelle Couture' Pria Kataria Puri stands in sharp contrast to her contemporary.
Having won the 'Bharat Yuv Ratna' Award alongwith 'Bharat Vikas Award' for designing Women's wear, it looks like no challenge is beyond this style Savvy Fashion Designer, who in less then six years has received great recognition for her work and has a discerning high profile clientele that includes some of the biggest names in Media, Films, Fashion, Politics and Corporate World not only in India but in US and Europe as well.Pria has received formal training in Fashion Designing first from Polytechnic in New Delhi and then from FIDM, San Francisco, where she showcased her first collection of Occidental Evening Wear with the likes of Escada, Perry Ellis and Christian Laxquix at the San Francisco Fashion Centre and the rest as we say is History.
Pria keeps a very hectic life between her two homes in Delhi and Mumbai, being a wise a mother and a couturier is no catwalk. Horse riding, Roller blading, Indian classical music, Bharat Natyam, Piano, Palmistry, Sketching and Cooking are some of her hidden talents.
