IN CONVERSATION WITH SALIM ASGARALLY

— JASMEEN DUGAL

Salim Asgarally, who recently completed twenty-five years in Fashion, is a name to reckon with. Not only has he dressed Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Bipasha Basu and Simi Garewal, to name a few, his home furnishings can be seen in the homes of Madonna and Brad Pitt! Whats more, the couturier gives back to Fashion by mentoring young designers, craftsmen and artisans, both under the umbrella of his organisation as well as at workshops. In conversation with the designer on the eve of his most antic aped motivational workshop at Laconic — an initiative by The Fashion Design Council Of Rajasthan.

 

''Motivational, interactive workshops inspire young minds towards a career in fashion and sets them on the right path. Young minds need to be exposed to the right thought processes and the right practices in the world of fashion. They need to be trained to think so that they create styles that are representative of our culture and lifestyle and are also acceptable to the International community at large so that we can be a part of global fashion. Budding designers must also prepare themselves for the business of fashion by being sensitive to the needs of the markets that they serve as well as keep a keen eye on global fashion trends so that we create styles which are acceptable to India and worldwide.

 

Speaking of Rajasthan, Fashion is ready to take off in all Tier-2 cities across the country. Metros have been saturated; it's now the turn of smaller places to be able to access the best of Indian fashion!! FDCR 's symposium this week will be an eye opener for young minds who are interested in fashion, to understand from their more experienced counterparts, as to how the business of fashion actually functions including the do’s and dont’s they must know about. I am looking forward to some very interesting stimulating interactions with my industry fellow-mates as well as meeting and discussing the concerns and queries of those young people keen on joining the trade.  And, not to forget, shopping for some lovely block prints in Jaipur! LOL !!''
