New Delhi: Vision and passion are a must to succeed in the fashion world, says Dhruv Kapur, who keeps his designs "minimal" and focuses on "finishing and detailing".

"Different people have different capabilities learning curves and altitudes. For me, training can be formal or vocational, but the most important things are vision and passion," said Kapur when asked about importance of training for a designer.

An economics graduate from London School of Economics and Political Science, Kapur started designing at the age of 17 and has worked with the brands likes Harvey Nichols, Varun Sardana, Prashant Verma and Kimaya.

Last year, the 25-year-old started his label DRVV and recently launched his line on Pernia Qureshi`s online pop-up shop.

Talking about success, he said: "Success comes to the conscientious and honest, provided they have a USP."

"My clothes are minimal, architectural and utilitarian. The designs are largely unisex. Each piece is methodically crafted from the finest natural fabrics with an eye on impeccable finishing and detailing," he said.
