  1. I have to say Iam a little disappointed with how the whole Indian fashion scene has turned out. I had expected a little more creativity and originality. But its all peplums and high lows if it’s Western. Voluminuous skirts and veils with copius amounts of embroidery if Indian.

    Sabya started out a little different but his collections have recently been more of the same. The only designer that shows a little promise is Anita Dongre.

    How about playing with fabric (and please no more Leather saris) incorporating something fun and unexpected. Like a Linen kurta with minimal (emphasis on minimal) leather piping. or having a South Indian zari bordered western gown. Please anything other than floor length anarkalis and bikini cholis.

    Maybe even a salwar with the duppatta attached in a way that wouldnt be possible if it were separate? How about some pleated material in the salwars, A line in front, pleats in the back? Maybe a formal Western dress with pom poms?

    Come on designers you have so much fabric and so many wearing styles to play with! Dazzle us!

    • Completely agree. The last line nailed it. Each outfit now seems like a a modified version of another designer’s collection. And this outfit really seems like a Neeta Lulla version of Payal Khandwala collection. Seriously. There is a hell lot to play with when it comes to designs and fabrics. We are seldom bowled over. Sometimes only the face of the wearer and her/his attitude salvage the look.

      • Such a hateful comment. What makes you say that she should never become a designer but you can correct her by your self righteous attitude. Very mean.

        • Nothing personal n mean..Had it been so, dn PnP wud hv moderated it! I hv seen on HHC pages itself where designers hv made gowns out of kanjeevaram sarees n results vr awful..it ws like destroying d beautiful handloom saree..cuming to attached dupattas to salwars, to me atleast it makes no sense..yess salwar(bottom wear) is d word used in above comment. If she meant kurta(top wear) dn dats a different thing thou market is already flooded with such designs bt point here is d person who cn’t differentiate btwn kurta n salwars wud actually b able to handle clients efficiently?? Cumon dese r basics! N western wear wid pom poms..sorry!

          • @MoniPal At least Iam out there throwing out suggestions instead of just negating what others are saying. Where are your ideas? I’d like to hear them.

            One item I would like to see is a Crossword puzzle skirt with uplifting Sanskrit words in it. Bonus points for incorporating embroidery and mirrors.

          • @Fashion Compassion- I favour smart silhouettes such as wel fitted straight cut floor length kurta in raw silk having front slit paired with brocade pencil trouser or a brocade waist length jacket in western cut (like two button suit) paired with plain silk skirt/lehenga. I prefer rich fabrics over embroideries.
            PS. M happy in my current job :)

  2. Plenty of fabulous designers in India, undoubted.y. But they are stuck creating for a market that wants the same old, same old. Many comments on this platform reflects the same mindset. So, what is a talented Indian designer to do?
