Indian Fashion at SFF

Lifestyle 07/12/2023

For years major international designers from Valentino to Armani have incorporated Indian influences in their work and for years fashion forecasters have predicted that India is the flavour of the month, a passing fad. And Indian influences have come and they’ve gone, and last season they were back again in the bohemian look, the kurtis and long skirts. We’ve all seen the Indian fashion influences percolating in mainstream America. Walk down the streets and you see the Indian inspired tunics and kurtis in the windows of major stores, the Indian juthis are sold on the sidewalks in New York. Pashminas first hit the west with a bang and trickled down to street fashion with knock-offs popping up all over the place for cheap prices.

Dangling chandelier earrings based on Indian Jhumkas have also caught on with fashion mavens. Or take for instance the recent Singapore fashion festival ( SFF ) – complete with fuchsia pinks, spangles and a heavy accent on Bollywood. As trends set in Milan and Paris are duly acknowledged by the rest of the fashion conscious world, inevitably, what emanates from India itself is being taken seriously. At the SFF which featured shows by Versace, John Paul Gaultier and Givenchy among others, the show by four well-known Indian designers was saved for the last day. It’s not just nearby Singapore that is so excited by the Indian influence in designer wear. This season, Prada’s skirts have delicate Indian mirror work on their hems and DKNY’s new arrivals are detailed with Indian embroidery.
