VEN BUDHU

VEN BUDHU was one of the contestants of Project Runway season 10. He graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in womenswear and spent his third year of college attending Polimoda in Florence, Italy. He claims that he has good taste and a keen eye for design. He likes capturing an emotion or an attitude and transforming it to a stunning visual impact.

Ven would eventually return to New York City where he founded his own clothing line, “Gavaskar”, in 2011. Below are some samples from his collection.

Born in Guyana, he emigrated to America when he was four years old and grew up in South Ozone Park. Although he always had an interest in evening wear, it also helped his future fashion career living in a house with three older sisters.

When Ven was five years old, he saw the Disney movie “Beauty and the Beast.” It was a life-changing experience. Soon after, he was drawing Belle’s gown, and a lifelong love for women’s evening wear was born.
