Traditional Fashion into a Trendy Look

Clothing in India varies from region to region depending on the ethnicity, geography, climate and cultural traditions of the people of that region. India is a country with an ancient clothing design tradition, yet an emerging fashion industry. Historically, men and women's clothing has evolved from simple Langotas and loincloths to cover the body to elaborate costumes not only used in daily wear but also on festive occasions as well as rituals and dance performances.
But nowadays we have very vast trendy clothes’ and fashion culture. In India, woman's clothing varies widely and is closely associated with the local culture, religion and climate. By 2009, the Indian fashion industry, despite the ongoing recession, was worth INR2.9 billion (US$44 million). Also in the same year, Manish Arora, known for his quirky-kitsch, became the first Indian designer to participate in the Paris Fashion Week. Moreover Delhi and Mumbai are important centers of fashion designing and manufacture in India, followed by Kolkata, Bangalore and other large cities and they organized fashion weeks like India Fashion Week, Lakme Fashion Week & Bangalore Fashion Week.
