Born in India, Designer Mac Duggal’s enthusiasm for women’s couture fashion was honed at an early age when he took a sketch pad and began to merge the rich, royal history and opulent traditions of his native land with a sophisticated and contemporary esthetic.
Arriving in the United States at the age of 23, Mac’s American success story began with a custom designed tulle ballgown featuring a subtle hand-painted underlining. Dubbed his “Wish Upon A Star” design, the dress launched his namesake collection and remains the inspiration for some of the brand’s most sought-after ready-to-wear bestsellers.
Today the Mac Duggal Design House, headquartered in Burr Ridge, IL outside the city of Chicago, continues to showcase seasonal collections known for their statement and entrance-making drama, feminine detailing and modern sensibility. Each Mac Duggal design reflects Mac’s vision to create wearable gowns and dresses that encapsulate the very essence of the women who wear them and reflect her strength, confidence and inner beauty.
Mac Duggal’s creations are as magnificent as the maharaja palaces that served as the brand’s earliest inspiration. From sleek and streamlined silhouettes to intricate drapings and body conscious shapes that garner attention to more jeweled, beaded, embroidered and embellished styles – each present an early indicator to the upcoming season’s trends with an exquisite attention to detail that are the hallmark of an authentic Mac Duggal design.
From couture one-of-a-kind styles fabricated for red carpet, performance, stage and screen to cocktail dresses and gowns to mark special occasions and milestone moments – every Mac Duggal design is a timeless and ageless fashion statement that defines every stage of a woman’s life and fashion lifestyle.
