How have Indian designers closed the gap for many who want a duplicate or replica? 


Luxury Indian bridal wear has never been more in demand.


Thousands of British Asians filled a swanky Mayfair hotel to meet the men and women behind the designs, and to discuss the possibility of wearing something similar to the stars.

The last four months or five months has been real chaotic because, you know, we did Deepika Padukone’s wedding, and after that came Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s wedding. Bollywood and fashion has worked together many, many times to create fashion awareness. A lot of people at the grassroot(s) level of benefit from it. Artisans, a lot of weavers, a lot of embroiderers, beaders, get a lot of job(s) done and I think that's exciting.

I know people keep talking about Brexit. I haven't seen any down fall in people's spending for couture at all. A lot of the Indian designers have closed the gap for someone who wants to buy a duplicate or a replica as opposed to theirs because they have gone down on their pricing.

But it's not just affordability that's changed. It's also an increase in access; whether that be in person or on the internet.


Anita Dongre, fashion designer
The moment a celebrity wears you, within minutes, everyone gets to know – and I mean within minutes, we get requests on our Instagram, requests on the email. I think it's amazing that social media today connects you to the consumer directly with no time lost at all.

Anita Dongre 服装设计师
“只要有一位名人穿着你设计的服装,在几分钟内,所有人就都知道了,我是说在几分钟内,我们则会在 Instagram、在电子邮件上收到购买请求。我觉得非常好的是,现在的社交媒体能让我们和消费者直接联系,一点时间都没有浪费。”
