Indian Fashion Industry

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 exactly 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 end result.

In 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.

A Fashion Guide: Basic Rules to Follow For Plus Sized Women

Who says that one has to be a size zero to look incredible? When looking at the pages of most fashion magazines, one may come away with the impression that beauty comes in only one size: tiny. However, that assumption is false. Women of all shapes and sizes can look fabulous and sexy by dressing to focus on their good attributes.

Plus-sized women often are not taught any guidelines about looking their best. Common fashion advice is geared toward the small to average sized body type. However, by sticking to several guidelines, the plus-sized woman can look and feel confident, sexy and gorgeous.

Accentuate the Positive

A fashion stylist will often say that plus-sized women need to know how to emphasize their best attributes and downplay their figure faults. A plus-sized woman should learn to look in the mirror and not beat herself up over her size. Every woman, whether she is a size four or size 14, will have figure faults, so plus-sized women should learn to change their mindsets regarding attractiveness. Women do not have to be perfectly proportioned to look lovely.

Plus-sized women do have some advantages over super slim ladies. Many times, these women have feminine, sexy curves that some other women can only achieve by using padded undergarments. If a woman has generous cleavage, a slender waist or sexy legs, she should accentuate those body parts, even if the rest of her body is not the ideal.
