Fashion designing is all about seeing your concepts, designs and ideas come to life through all the hard work and efforts that you put in along the way. Every fashion designer/brand comes up with a new collection every fashion season. A lot of work goes into conceptualising, creating and delivering a collection that’s about newness and is familiar yet unique. Sometimes these new collections strike a chord with people and they end up loving it and other times these may not have the same effect.
The Fashion designing industry in the south has taken its own sweet time to bloom. There was a time when all the fashion trends would start in the northern states of India and by the time they reach the southern states, it’s already time for a new trend. But now the times have changed. In the past few years, we have had some amazing fashion designers starting their label’s in the south. They have established themselves here and nationally with their impeccable designs and amazing collections. Our fashion game has gotten better and improved tremendously over the years, thanks to these designers.
These fashion designers showcased their collection at the prestigious Lakme Fashion Week and left everybody mesmerized with their work. We are going to be introducing some of these celebrity fashion designers, who have made a mark for themselves and keep inspiring us every day to be better at what we do!
