How does Indian fashion stand out from the rest of the world?
I don’t agree Indian fashion stands out from rest of the world. But Manish Arora and Rahul Mishra definitely stand out as Indian designers.
Where do you see Indian fashion in the next five years?
Definitely the next level. If all the young designers keep doing the kind of work we really want to do,and focus on polishing the individual style of designing, and do not try to copy other designers’ work, we will make India stand out from rest of the world.
In your opinion, how does the fashion scene of the UAE differ from the rest of the world?
