The word ‘Exclusive’ is the modern fashion mantra. Each one of us is a unique human being. Why then would we want to stuff that is ready to wear? Yes, readymade garments are a great convenience. We like the colour combination. The texture appeals to us. The design is cool and the price tag suits our budget. We can buy it today and wear it tomorrow. As simple as that.
But hold on – we also want to celebrate our uniqueness. We want to mix and match and create our own wardrobe.
Techno savvy young women secretly but with great trepidation explored ecommerce fashion clothing portals to source exclusive products. These young women were busy working professionals. They had no time for elaborate shopping expeditions in the local markets. Within five years the fashion trends of ecommerce clothing portals became stale.The ‘exclusive’ tag was missing. Women who had time created their own garments by visiting the local markets to buy the material and then got them designed by decent dress designers.
But there was a constant demand for something new. The trends were shifting slowly. Organic and eco-friendly garments were preferred. Motifs and designs that displayed Indian heritage and culture were worn with pride. The sheer breathability of hand woven fabrics was recognized and given a global stature. Mill made? Machine made? Oh – so boring!! Give me something that makes a statement of its own. Give me something with a personality. Give me something that defines me. Give me something that is charming. Give me some history. Give me some geography.
