-Introducing Limited Edition Hermes Sari-

This Month after traveling around India, I was so Happy to hear about the latest fashion News that has hit the fashion capital of Mumbai. After a long awaited time the exclusive, luxurious brand of Paris, Hermes has launched its first Store in India. After having many small stores in hotels around India, it was about time for Hermes to official make its fabulous stamp on India.

Hermes decided its launch in Mumbai as a tribute to the country and its beautiful architecture and extreme popularity within India society. The address of the new Hermes in Mumbai is 001, it is in the centre of the city, from where everything begins.

To celebrate the opening of Hermes NEW store in Mumbai, they have launched a limited addition Sari collection inspired by their printed silk scarves, for a short period of time. For the first time ever, Hermes has created something exclusive for its consumers. The Saris are 8 yards of beautiful and Luxurious silk prints, that Hermes have always been known to produce. "Hermès admires India and has a lot to learn from India," said Patrick Thomas, the chief executive of Hermès International.

The store will also offers buyers the option of ordering a custom made choli (the Sari blouse) to go along with their Hermes original sari, and the entire purchase will come delivered in a specially created box. Saris are a traditional outfit that have been worn by women in the past, present and will continue to wear in the future. Majority of women in India tend to wear Saris for traditional celebrations, weddings and occasional everyday. They are a very important piece to an Indian Ladies wardrobe, which is why Hermes is confident that their traditional luxury garments will be a hit in India.

Indian Fashion is considered to be a luxury indulgent, with its beautiful colours, exquisite embroidery and patterns, who else would be more suitable to express this than a brand that has created a its name on luxury.

The Saris are rumored to cost around Rs 300,000 (Indian Rupee), which is an estimated £38,961. Hermes has truly shown that they are a brand that can provide quality that wraps more than just your neck.-

The POWER IMPACT of the T-Shirt

The NEW WAVE of Fashion has entered India, with its great traditional essences displayed on a modern staple of anyone's everyday dressing. The simple and basic T-Shirt has been transformed with tradition and culture of the great Sikh Culture, from Traditional Sayings, Images, Colours, Sikh Symbols and historical legacy, they are by far the most eye-catching design that India has in a long time.

With this powerful appeal, they have become extremely popular with any generation of India and have also made a huge impact in the celebrities and Bollywood World, creating more fame than expected.
Many stores around India have opened from New Delhi to Chandigarh and Mumbai, with the Brand name “1469”, which is a memorable year for all Sikh it was the year that Guru Nanak was born. The unique name adds to the great concept that has been formed.

The idea came from Harinder Singh, a Sikh city lover, who lived away from the rural life of Punjab but still had such a 'great passion for Punjab', he wanted to share with the world the great 'rich and proud cultural' that is honored by many Sikhs and Non-Sikhs.

In his creation Harinder Singh wanted to be sure to create the perfect image of his community, regonissing their historical triumps and respect, its witty culture, words from the Gurbani and unique sense of traditions. Harinder wanted to send his messages of his community by the affective communication of a T-Shirts.

He believes that a t-shirt is not just ‘a garment but a medium of communication and a very effective one.’ He has said in may interviews that when you adverts in newspapers or on television it will cost a lot of money and run for a short time and maybe not making the impact that you wanted. But by designing a message on a T-Shirt, the buyer funds the message and the message is out there in the public eye for a long as the T-shirt is wearable.

This is a way that fashion is allowing designers to make a statement, by using Fashion as its main communicator.

Another way that this concept has caught the eye of many Indians, is the way in which Imtiaz Ali Director of Hindi film ‘Rockstar’, has used the slogan that Harinder Singh has created “Saadda Haq” in his new film. Director Imtiaz Ali has placed an order of 300 T-shirts which will be worn by the cast of the “Rockstar’ movie, that is soon to hit movie theaters.

This simple creation is a reflection of the great attitude that many of our ancestors have always embraced.-
