MUMBAI — India is seeing a groundswell of new designers.
As the fashion market in India is estimated to grow from $39 billion in 2010 to $63.26 billion in 2012, more and more designers are launching businesses to tap into the country’s growing disposable incomes as well as opening new malls and stores that can house new brands. The number of Indian designers is growing fast, with more than 90 showing at Lakme Fashion Week here from Aug. 16 to 21.
