Fame rests lightly but with certainly on Rohit Bal, whom Time magazine in its Special Report on India profiled as 'India's Master of fabric and fantasy.' The regard he commands among the top echelons of Indian fashion is endorsed by a discerning, high-profile clientele, that includes some of India's biggest names in media, films, fashion and the corporate world.

Intensely concerned with design as an art form, he draws upon history, fantasy and folklore to create his masterpieces, which retail for up to 10,000 USD. These are gone before you know it snapped up by the discerning and needless to say, the wealthy, completely does he seem to have understood the psyche of the target customer, that fashion pundits credit him with setting the trend for every season. His address to the fashion scene is intelligent and studied, yet imaginative and inspired. Graduating from Delhi's St. Stephen's College with a first class (Hons.) degree in History, the compulsive designer worked for few years with his brother's export company. In 1990 he created his first line- traditional designer wear from men and the rest, indeed, is history.
