Indian embroidery, needlework making Western inroads: Falguni-Shane
Shane and Falguni Peacock.
"Indian artwork and karigari is immensely appreciated and sought out in international markets. Our embroidery and needlework are considered rich in culture and aesthetically appealing to the western fashionistas," Shane told IANS.
Added Falguni: "Chanel (the French fashion house) recently created an entire line, which were Indian-inspired designs on Western silhouettes. Our Indian designers and their sensibilities are definitely being recognised and appreciated and more Indian designers are making inroads into the western markets every day."
They enjoy working with their international client whom they describe as trendsetters.
"Working with international pop stars has always been exciting and fun. They are the trendsetters who know what they want and what looks good on them. It is easy to work with them and there's always something fresh and new to play around with," Falguni said.
Recently Demi Lovato, one of the judges at the upcoming edition of "The X Factor", chose a bold trendy outfit made by them. Also, they styled the entire look of backdancers outfits for Madonna's Super Bowl performance.
