Clean, sophisticated forms speak of our sartorial philosophy, while immaculate tailoring and intricate detailing reflect our commitment to craft and essentially define this label.
Sounak Sen Barat, the Design Director and Founder of House of Three, has worn different hats in his 15 year long journey in the Indian fashion industry. From design to brand creation and styling, he's done it all with elan. A graduate of NIFT New Delhi, Sounak's creative sensibilities bear a strong signature of an upbringing steeped in an appreciation of culture, and the context within which it develops. His varied interests and pursuits in music, interior design, architecture and graphic art have influenced a certain design sensibility that continues to direct the sartorial decisions of an entire generation of Indians. With House of Three, Sounak has now created a platform to articulate his unique vision for the contemporary Indian - which has a decidedly western mould but, with a very Indian soul.
Anu Shyamsundar, the Business Director and Partner at House of Three, is the force behind the wheel that steers this ship. A design graduate of NIFT Delhi, Anu began her career in the design space, and over the years has transitioned to retail sales and brand management for some of the top corporate fashion houses in the country. An avid traveller that she is, her sense of adventure has helped Anu chart a very inspiring path in a 15 year long fashion retail career, launching and managing new brands and categories in apparel and accessories for the contemporary Indian. Her genuine interest in people, and ability to bring together people from a variety of backgrounds, has led to collaborations in various segments leading to innovative product offerings - both created and curated - that have struck a chord with the urbane Indian.
