The brand was conceived by creative director, Jatin Patel, who trained at Kiad and UCA in Rochester with a MA Distinction in Fashion Design. He has accumulated over 15 years of experience in the fashion industry, including showcasing RTW collections at the Royal Academy for London fashion week and at Pret a Porter in Paris.
From the Atelier in Rochester, Jatin along with his talented team cut and craft the finest garments for both women and men, creating to every individuals desire. With style, sophistication and individuality at the core, anything is possible from statement cocktail dresses, evening gowns and bridal, to razor sharp men’s tailoring.
The creations echo a timeless beauty and combine classic elegance embodying luxurious embellished fabrics and cloth with a hand-finished couture quality aligned with perfect fitting, in harmony with individual body shapes and the skills in handcrafted tailoring.
Kalikas Armour offers a service from design through to final production, creating a completely bespoke garment to your exact specifications, incorporating not only personal body shape and fit but also taste, lifestyle and character ensuring that every piece is truly unique.
For weddings, by collaborating with the bride and the groom along with their parties, all outfits can be created to compliment and coordinate the theme. Bridal gowns are designed and created in discretion from the groom ensuring a complete surprise reveal on the special day. This is complemented with decadent menswear, specialising in tailored jackets, waistcoats and shirts in opulent and luxurious fabrics, detailed with distinctive finishings.
Accessories can either be created or sourced from equally reputable companies ranging from jewellery to flower bouquets. Clients can also select a design from the Archive Collection, which can be modified to suit personal taste for any occasion. All consultations and fittings are carried out by Jatin and can be arranged in the studio or at the client’s residence, hotel or a location and time that is convenient to suit.
A longstanding reputation for design and manufacturing excellence, coupled with a friendly and relaxed approach have ensured many continuing commissions and projects with high profile clientele.
