Notable fashion designer and the founder of an acclaimed fashion label, Satya Paul died at the age of 78 on Wednesday at the Isha Yoga Centre in Coimbatore. He died after suffering a stroke last month, his son Puneet Nanda said.
“Those who have been with him at any point in life would recall him as one who showered his love without hesitation or any barriers, It is the greatest testament to him as he went joyously, without fear”, his son Puneet Nanda wrote on Facebook.
The founder of Isha Yoga Centre, Sadhguru tweeted,”#SatyaPaul, a shining example of what it means to live with immeasurable passion and unrelenting involvement. The distinct vision you brought to the Indian #fashion industry is a beautiful tribute to this. A privilege to have had you amongst us. Condolences and blessings -Sg.”
The designer discovered Sadhguru in 2007. He immediately started enjoying the path of yoga and eventually moved there in 2015.
He set up India’s first sari boutique in 1980 and launched his own label six years later. His label is known for its unique and one-of-a-kind prints. Its product range includes sarees, scarfs, stoles, shawls, bags, clutches, ties, cufflinks, and wallets, among others.
Masaba Gupta, who served as a creative director for the brand, said his label “will stand the test of time”.
