Men’s Fashion in India
"Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society."
Indian fashion is a true representation of our souls. No wonder women's fashion is always a talking point but that does not convey that men should stay behind. Which is why men's fashion designers strive hard to make Indian men's fashion as stunning as possible. Traditional men's Indian clothing showcases a wide range of kurta payjama, sherwani, achkan, nehru jacket etc.
Coming to our bollywood actors, they are also in the race of the fashion icon battle with their total desi look. Actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Sharukh Khan, Ranveer Singh, Varun Dhawan, Ranbir Kapoor and many more have always inspired the youth with their ethnic ramp looks.
Indian designers or fashion students have to be very careful in drawing a line of difference between the fashion wear of actors and of clients, as we live in a society in which adaptability to different designs is very low, that is why bespoke designing is always in demand for Bollywood men's wear whereas for clients you can go both the ways: ready to wear or bespoke designing.
Indian designers also need to be alert to the demand of the current scenario, as now the world is facing Covid - 19: The designer Pranay Baidya says " I strongly believe we are going back to a sustained period of craft, handloom and tradition...The desire and urgent need to support 'Make in India' is stronger than ever before..."
