    Do you conduct these interviews? The fall 2009 collection looks like an inspiration from the movie SATC; gladiators and belted ensemble.
    Most designers do a lot of last minute changes, late nights at the studio before fashion shows; is that called spontaneity Swapnil? Kidding yeah!
    Regardless of how the collection fares and whether you have borrowed an idea or two, if you are a hands-on designer, the level of hardship in executing and achieving what you envisioned is the hardest of all, so thumps for that.

    um…did he say Priyanka Chopra’s HAIR was his biggest inspiration?!
    I’m HOPING that he means the bob we saw on the last mag she was one!!!

    I wonder if there are any websites, where we could look at his collection or even buy stuff from?
    I LOVE that grey metallic gown on the runway :)

    I find his interview quite casual compared to Anand Kabra ..but maybe staying casual is his thing. He seems smitten by Priyanka Chopra.. but calling her bob a trend is just too much… who else have we seen wearing that? Also.. I was thinking that the bob was probably a wig and not even her real hair which only came up in cover shoots. Being inspired by music is fine if that works for you.. but being inspired by a Valentino … well that just scares me because I keep thinking of how some designers almost like to copy but like to label it as an inspiration. 6000 to 8000 is not excatly affordable for a college going girl.. but i’ll give that to him. Stop picking on Vidya Balan now.. it is ancient news that she could probably use a makeover! In the 1st set of pics featured in this interview, I don’t like the dress on the right.. and the way that the same fabric has been used on the guy.. don’t like that either. The grey mettalic gown sure looks interesting but it could go down as really frumpy or a mess on someone on the red carpet. Would like to see someone try and work that dress in real life. I like the colour of the 2nd gown tho.

    Nick, the interview does sound very casual or more like he is young, and there is an honesty of a young heart in it. The rhythm of the music can be an inspiration as it creates flow, texture or even a silhoutte.
    I think he meant Priyanka Chopra in her bob is his muse nowadays; he is visualising his garments on her with that hair style. Besides, anything we see or felt can be an inspiration, any form or shape of any object or emotion, but it would sound weird or funny if you go into the detail to explain. That being said, it is imporatant to focus on one theme or storyboard, to make it the collection, although subconsiciously or consciously elements of the design could have been drawn from random things that we may have seen/heard/felt.
