Vanguard Bespoke - a homage to the highest standard of tailoring; with modern panache
Mighel Critten, started his journey studying menswear design at London College of Fashion in 2003. Whilst doing apprenticeships on and off Savile Row throughout his studies, Mighel perfected his craft and went on to set up his own bespoke tailoring service in London in 2006. As a young up-start in a conservative world he prided himself on delivering looks and suits that were thoroughly modern yet traditionally handmade; fun yet functional & built to last a lifetime.
Moving to India in 2017 Mighel set up our workshop that makes the finest handmade suits, with a perfect mix of modernity and tradition. Mighel personally trained a team of craftspeople the intricate art of the Savile Row standard of bespoke tailoring and Vanguard produces for some of the most reputable tailoring houses in London. Quickly realizing there was a large and burgeoning market that would appreciate the finesse of a Vanguard suit, Mighel launched a visiting service in Delhi to continue working directly with customers.
Since inception Vanguard bespoke has gone on to launch it's service in Mumbai, Dhaka, New York and (returning to where it all began) London.
Mighel is based in Delhi and still visits all the Vanguard locations on a regular basis to personally meet our patrons.
Manish's menswear career has been been multifaceted as a designer, entrepreneur, tailoring and styling expert for over 16 years in UK and India. He has worked as designer for various UK menswear brands; launched his own label in Delhi, participated in Lakme Fashion Week & provided tailoring services to his clients in the growing sector of luxury tailoring in India.
Armed with a Masters' degree from London College of Fashion, Manish first crossed paths with Mighel over ten years ago in London at a multi national made-to-measure tailoring company. Mighel, as head of technical and sales team development personally trained Manish for his role as Senior Style Advisor.
Over the years of working together in the luxury menswear sector in the UK & India a friendship grew. With both finding themselves in Delhi, Manish is excited to again join forces with Mighel under Vanguard Bespoke and to bring Vanguard's exceptional standard of European tailoring to the Indian market.
Manish is available in Delhi and plans to spearhead the expansion of Vanguard Bespoke across India. To get in touch with Manish directly email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vanguard Bespoke is bringing the finest form of bespoke handmade tailoring to the subcontinent and back to western markets.
We do not work with blocks, styles or collections. For men and women alike each and every Vanguard piece is uniquely created for our patrons. We pride ourselves on delivering an unparalleled level of customer service and perfect fit every time.
Unlike other tailors in the region we work directly with some of the best mills in Europe. Mighel has carefully curated a range of fabrics to suit every taste, every body shape & every climate. We work with some very well known fabric mills as well as some lesser known ones that are niche and may only make one type of fabric perfectly.
Whatever the occasion rest assured Vanguard Bespoke will create something that you will cherish for a lifetime.
