Ashvin Valiram

One third of Southeast Asia’s leading luxury retail-group brothers, Ashvin Valiram leads the eponymous group of family vendors who specialise in representing designer costumiers and brands

Profile


Part of the third generation of the Valiram Group, Ashvin Valiram is one of the three brothers behind the meteoric rise of his family business founded by his grandfather in 1935. The family, which was involved in the textile trade up until the early 1990s, were thrust into the luxury retail segment after the unexpected success of their first airport-based boutique store in Subang International Airport.

From accidental luxury retailers, Ashvin and his brothers carved a reputation as Southeast Asia’s leading luxury-goods purveyor and innovative retail specialists, specifically travel and downtown retail. Today, their group represents more than 200 top luxury and lifestyle brands from Michael Kors, Jimmy Choo, Rolex and Kate Spade to Bath & Body Works, with footprints in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Australia, Russia and beyond.

In 2020, the brothers launched their passion project, a coffee-table book charting the family business’ history since 1935.


“When the watch retail fraternity heard we wanted to open a new store, they laughed at our attempt. But that disbelief only strengthened our will and ambition.”
