With the end of the 20th century came the end of all hype, which has created a more practical and pragmatic environment and has given a more stable picture of the fashion business.
In the 50s, 60s, and 70s, the Indian fashion scenario wasn’t precisely colorless. It was exciting, stylish and very graceful. There were no designers, models, star or fashion design labels that the country could show off. The value of a garment was judged by its style and fabric and not by who made it.
It was regarded as ever so chic and fashionable to approach any unfamiliar tailor, who could make a garment for a few rupees, providing the perfect fit, finish, and style. The high society lady, who wore it, was proud for getting a good bargain and for giving her name to the result.
In the 60s, tight ‘kurtas,’ ‘churidars’ and high coiffures were a trend among ladies. It was an era full of naughtiness and celebration in arts and music and cinema, manifested by liberation from restriction and acceptance of new types of materials such as plastic film and coated polyester fabric.
The 70s witnessed an increase in the export of traditional materials outside the country as well as within. Hence, international fashion arrived in India much before the MTV culture with the bold colors, flower prints, and bell-bottoms. Synthetics turned trendy, and the disco culture affected the fashion scenario.
It was in the early 80s when the first fashion store ‘Ravissant’ opened in Mumbai. At that time, garments were retailed for a four-figure price tag. The ’80s was the era of self-consciousness, and American designers like Calvin Klein became popular. In India too, silhouettes became more masculine, and the ‘salwar kameez’ was designed with shoulder pads.
