Several media publications reported that the film was inspired by the lives of fashion models such as Shivani Kapur, Geetanjali Nagpal, Kate Moss and Alicia Raut; however, Bhandarkar stated that the story is fictional and does not resemble anyone’s life. The media also reported that the film revolved around two homosexual fashion designers; Bhandarkar denied these rumours, saying the film did not revolve around male characters but had female protagonists.

Fashions may vary considerably within a society according to age, social class, generation, occupation, and geography, and may also vary over time. The terms fashionista and fashion victim refer to someone who slavishly follows current fashions. Similar changes in clothing can be seen in Japanese clothing between the Genroku period and the later centuries of the Edo period (1603–1867), during which a time clothing trends switched from flashy and expensive displays of wealth to subdued and subverted ones. What we choose to wear reflects how we view the world and how we want the world to view us.
A review of 250 of the world’s largest fashion brands and retailers ranked according to their level of public disclosure on human rights and environmental policies, practices and impacts in their own operations and in their supply chains. One fashion cause is trashion, which is using trash to make clothes, jewelry, and other fashion items in order to promote awareness of pollution. There are a number of modern trashion artists such as Marina DeBris, Ann Wizer, and Nancy Judd. Other designers have used DIY fashions, in the tradition of the punk movement, to address elitism in the industry to promote more inclusion and diversity. Videos in general have been very useful in promoting the fashion industry. This is evident not only from television shows directly spotlighting the fashion industry, but also movies, events and music videos which showcase fashion statements as well as promote specific brands through product placements.

You’ll find everything you need to outfit your little ones, including activewear, outfit sets, shorts, swimsuits, and underwear. It’s easiest to shop for kids’ clothes by focusing on the specific section that caters to their age or size range. The Baby & Toddler, Boys, and Girls sections are further subdivided into categories for infants, toddlers, little boys, and girls. The main children’s clothing sections cater to boys and girls who are usually in elementary and middle school, though each kid may size out of these ranges at different points in their lives. We also have a Junior’s section for girls who have outgrown the clothes in the girls’ section but aren’t yet ready for grown-up women’s fashions.
