Karan Berry’s initial fascination with design broadened before succumbing to the allure of fashion. Following participation in diverse fashion projects, he pursued a postgraduate diploma in fashion. Having ventured into menswear and visual merchandising with an export company, Karan spent four years at Spykar Jeans. Concurrently, he independently crafted bridal trousseau, nurturing a penchant for footwear design. His trajectory led him to the London College of Fashion for an Advanced Diploma in Cordwainers Footwear Design.

Returning to Mumbai, he consulted for Spykar Jeans and Tata International’s Taashi footwear line. This period laid the foundation for AKA Bespoke, a brand co-created by Karan.

Engaging in postgraduate studies in Aesthetics, he collaborated with educational institutes like Symbiosis and SNDT, and served as Creative Director for Being Human Clothing. Currently, as National Creative Director for Force IX, specializing in athleisure wear with Akshay Kumar, and Creative Director for The Designer’s Class, he embraces varied design challenges.

Karleo, a collaborative venture with Leon Vaz, seamlessly blends bespoke footwear and couture. Karan envisions a brand built on enduring values, prioritizing quality over quantity in both products and services. In 2019, he launched Mr. Berry, embodying sustainable and reusable principles across fashion, interiors, and accessories through recycling and upcycling. This venture, rooted in design principles, began as a blog, weaving observations, details, skill sets, and love into a narrative of style, fashion, and lifestyle.
