Sidney Sladen is one of the most popular fashion designers in India today. Born to a Kenyan father, Peter Alusa, and a Goan mother, Merle Sladen, he spent the first part of his life in Kenya and migrated to India for the latter part.
It was there that his passion for design was realized. With an initial start in clothing designs for the pageants, Sidney has gone on to design for movies and their stars.
He advises new entrepreneurs to invest slowly into their business and reinvest as it grows. Within 5 years, he has managed to open two stores, one in Malaysia, and the other in Hyderabad.
Kenyan Jewels will continue to watch this rising star to see what else he will achieve.
