GQ 35 Most Influential Young Indians 2023

Even after his label Countrymade won “The Showcase” at Blenders Pride Fashion Tour in 2020, Sushant Abrol didn’t rest on his laurels, showing dramatic improvement with each new collection and season. The label, which launched in late 2019, is known for thought-provoking narratives around the military and taking a modern approach to design while celebrating the artisanal strength of Indian craft. Abrol’s designs are minimal and wearable in approach, but well-tailored and sharp, featuring unique details that fit right in the world of contemporary menswear.

Countrymade debuted at Copenhagen International Fashion Fair in August 2022, and this year, in January, Abrol showcased his collection at Tranoï, the official Paris Fashion Week trade show, building on the growing momentum of his fresh, young brand.
