Quote Of The Day: Suzy Menkes Covers Fashion Weeks In India

Although the Wills week and its competing Indian fashion events may not yet have made a global impact, designers in this 21st century should be able to thrive on craft and creativity, which are increasingly prized in a fashion world saturated with cookie-cutter brands. "Craft in patchwork, craft in beading — whether I like it or not, all Indian designers are different and they don't do what everyone else has done," said Julie Gilhart, fashion director of Barneys New York. She was front-row-watching Indian fashion for the first time and fascinated by the individuality and verve. "I don't know if we will buy it — Barneys is so focused," Ms. Gilhart said. "But there is not one show where I didn't see a piece that I liked."
