Don’t we always fall head-over-heels for international fashion brands? We literally go gaga over their collections. All we want is an item with a tag that has a famous brand’s name on it. We follow their social media sites to update ourselves with the latest collections, save money to buy items from those brands and what not. They are readily available online and in shopping malls which make us want them even more. Half of the people out there just buy stuff to show off to their friends on social media that they indeed have bought something expensive from an international fashion brand. Sure they lure us into their trap with their oh-so-classy designs and provide us with the latest trending clothing and accessories but amidst all this don’t we neglect fashion brands originated in our home, India?

Apart from the great pieces produced by them, they are less expensive than the international brands (currency conversion you see!). So, today I shall highlight the popular Indian clothing brands that surely would not disappoint you. You should definitely check out their collection if you have not already.
