Why Can’t Celebs Pay For What They Wear Like Others Do?, Questions Designer Rohit Bal

While Indian traditional fashion has been a grandeur like no other. Amid all the gilts and glamours; supermodels to the Bollywood actresses replacing the covers on magazines something is not okay.

India’s one of the most sought after designer- Rohit Bal brings to his Instagram account what most designers don’t. Bal posted an impassioned rant on Facebook, expressing his deepest feelings to thousands of followers, writing that as a designer for over three decades, he had “witnessed the continued bastardization of Indian fashion.”

Bal, who has dressed everyone from Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to Ranbir Kapoor, wrote in the personal essay: “We have come a long way but are certainly not headed the right way. There are innumerable malaise that ail this industry.”

“Bollywood and the disparate costumes it generates (yes costumes… because anything designed specifically for film is technically a costume and comes under the aegis of costume design) does not represent contemporary Indian fashion. These are merely costumes specifically designed to style a script and clothe a character within that script. Unfortunately, mass adulation that blindly follows this as relevant Indian fashion, needs to be addressed and the majority who see this as relevant, need to be educated,” he wrote.

“We have the incestuous story of Bollywood stylists and their celebrated clients adding to the dilemma. Designers (with turnovers less than half the daily fee of these celebrities) are expected to provide their creations for red carpet appearances in exchange for publicity. My question is… why can’t these celebrities pay for what they wear like everyone else and why are designers succumbing to this for momentary mileage?,” he questioned.
