Vivek Karunakaran has carved a niche for himself in the fashion industry with his impeccable collections featured on the catwalks of Lakme Fashion Week and India Fashion Week. A paragon of style himself the fashion designer has been voted as one of the ‘50 Best Dressed Men in India' by GQ three years in a row. A blend of the classic and contemporary, his versatile designs are a celebration of the progressive and empowered personality. 

A top favourite with celebrities and fashionistas, Vivek Karunakaran has styled personalities such as Christian Louboutin, Ranveer Singh, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Anil Kapoor and many more. "At VK we love to style bold men and women who fearlessly stand up for what they believe in. Be it clothes or decor.. the VK aesthetic is gender inclusive, minimalistic and timeless. With a universal appeal, the design exemplifies a cross-cultural expression of both Indian and global sentiments," per his official website.

"Be it clothes or decor, the VK aesthetic represents a new minimalistic culture of refined and progressive design depicting gender equality and cross-cultural expression relevant to both India and the world," per Delta Leaders.

Vivek Karunakaran made headlines with a certain hashtag all over our social media timelines. Flawsome — defined as “an individual who embraces their ‘flaws’ and knows they are awesome regardless” — was the mantra and it was shared by illuminaries including actor Anil Kapoor- GQ Editor Che Kurrien- singer Andreah Jeremiah- and cricketers Abhinav Mukund and S Badrinath. As one of the few fashion designers from South India with a national presence he had a specific aim. "I want India to notice that we- in this part of the country- are also capable of creating style-centric campaigns. It is not just saying we do good stuff here it’s about projecting the good stuff we do” he told The Hindu. 

In 2019 Vivek Karunakaran launched his pret label: VK Essentials. "When we launched this new line under Vivek Karunakaran last week, we wanted to create a product that was easy to wear, high on style with a great value for money. When we buy a designer shirt, it is almost always for an occasion so here’s a product that can be repeated and has an element of style,” he told Indulge Express. 

Brand Vivek Karunakaran presently retails from the VK Flagship Store in Chennai and multi designer stores across India including AZA, MaalGaadi, 85 Lansdowne, Fuel, Ensemble and many more. Other than having a strong presence across India, VK has also carved a presence within the fashion fraternity in Riyadh, Dubai and Singapore.


Be it haute couture- pret- or decor, Vivek Karunakaran's design aesthetic represents a contemporary minimalistic culture of sleek progressive design- gender equality and cross-cultural expression relevant in both India and overseas.


With a strong underlying spirit that symbolises distinctiveness and progressive thinking.. Indian fashion designer Vivek Karunakaran envisions creating beautiful apparel and accessories for spirited men and women who fearlessly represent what they believe in.
