It's Bollywood that's keeping fashion designer Manish Malhotra busy as a bee these days.
"'Krrish 2', SOTY ('Student Of The Year'), Yashji's' next, 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani' and 'Heroine'!!! Busy with all these films and so have been off Twitter. Sorry guys," tweeted Malhotra.
Each film has a different theme and feel, and no wonder the designer must be working round-the-clock to serve his best to each project.
Deepika Govind regularly works with weavers in the interiors of southern India. She begs to differ that leading designers like her, who sell their merchandise for lakhs of rupees, exploit local talent by paying low wages. In fact, weavers demand much more than usual from them, she says.
"When I go to villages for fabrics, I get shocked to see that weavers are getting peanuts for their work. They get squeezed by everyone -- from traders to middlemen. But it is a misconception that we designers also take advantage of their condition," Govind told.
Indian couture king JJ Valaya has completed two decades in the fashion industry and, to celebrate the occasion, he is ready to roll out a vintage tour across three Indian cities to showcase the best designs from his 'House of Valaya'.
"The completion of two decades in Indian fashion deserves its due celebration," said Valaya in a statement.
Indian pacer Irfan Pathan says fashion for him is all about comfort and he doesn't believe in following any trend.
"For me, fashion and style is wearing comfortable clothes in skin-friendly fabric. I don't follow trends and style. Mostly, I love to wear a simple shirt or a t-shirt with a trouser," Irfan told IANS.
The 27-year-old was talking on the sidelines of a fashion event to launch the new range by Mushky, a brand known for men's clothing. The cricketer Wednesday walked the ramp as its brand ambassador here.
After comedy film "Desi Boyz", fashion designer Kunal Rawal has used his creative skills to develop a range of merchandise for the Indian Premier League (IPL) team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
Rawal's lifestyle merchandise for RCB fans and supporters include three special items - an army-styled t-shirt, Chris Gayle cap with dreadlocks and t-shirts with lots of sketches.
Rawal is glad that he got a chance to do something associated with cricket.
