Happy Birthday, Karan Johar! From being a student of fashion to becoming a sartorial influencer, here's a look back on the ace filmmaker's sartorial journey


Ace filmmaker, the king of jackets and the maestor of all things vogue, it's Karan Johar's birthday today and we're drowning in glee! From being the one who shied away from the shutterbugs to becoming the face headlining the media from all fronts, Karan Johar's journey has been an impeccable one. 

What's more? His sartorial diaries and on-fleek #OOTD's are worshipped by so many, including us! Shoutout to his stylist Nikita Jaisinghani...take a bow, gurl!

Started from the bottom, now we're here...


A trip down the memory lane will make you realize just how far we've come.

The person we see today is just someone who was willing to break barriers to achieve his dreams, while also establishing a ground for himself. And indeed, he did! 

Can we take a minute to appreciate this? So fetch! 

Suits, suits, suits! 

Shimmer suits, crisp suits, printed suits, embroidered suits, kimono suits, suit-suits,... the list goes on and on! 

We reckon you'll never find a person who's as enthusiastic and willing to experiment when it comes to fashion like Karan Johar,...err, Ranveer Singh, yes...but you know what we mean! 

Bombing with the bombers! 

Simply put, we are as obsessed with his jackets as he is!

Nikita Jaisinghani, do tell when we can steal/borrow these? Thanks in advance! 

Sherwani > everything

Chikankari? Check. Embroidery? Check. 

Popping colors? Check. Floral prints? Check. 

Umm, are you drooling yet or should we go on? 

KWK Style-files

Sipping coffee, dressing nice, spilling tea with a lot of spice! 

Needless to say, these genius outfits should be archived for future generations to cherish. 

All hail the King!

Twinning with his tots

The fashion ka keeda didn't spare his children either!

The trio have often sported similar #OOTD's and we can't help but scream #Goals! 

Vacay mode!

Holiday in style? Say no more! 

Karan has it all covered? 

Umm, excuse me, is that your jaw on the floor...Cuz, same!

Talk about sartorial roller-coasters! From what it has been, to what it is now. From someone who would be seen only in over-sized hoodies to someone avoiding lunch carbs to fit in his clothes; from someone who would hide behind the camera to becoming the show-stopper for various labels and designers alike, the journey, will and effort explain Karan's evolution like none other.
