Indian fashion scenario is known for its traditional, culture heritage and colorfulness. From Indian Saari, Salwar Kameez to high street fashion, Indian fashion Industry has gone through leaps and bounds. The growth in the fashion industry in India is tremendous over the years. This growth can be attributed to the influence cast by the western fashion industries. Embroidery is a famous Indian fashion trademark which is a way to include the traditional look with the western culture influence.

Fashion can be used to serve as on addition of one’s own personality or to veil one’s own true self. To some it’s an art form, to other’s it’s like a part of their culture and religion but to most it is a method of utilizing cloth to show or hide something about them. Just like art can be displayed through paintings, poetry, music, etc in the same way one dresses can represent different aspects of his personality.
