They Want To Emulate Alia Bhatt And Deepika Pudakone But That Isn’t Always Feasible: Says Nomi Ansari

The designer talks about the unique desires of the clients and criticism of being an overpriced brand.

In the dazzling world of fashion, where dreams are spun from silk and sequins, one of the renowned names is Nomi Ansari. Recently, the designer came as a guest on ‘Hasna Mana Hai’, where he offered a candid glimpse into his life, work, and the intricacies of running a luxury brand.

Nomi’s creations have graced the frames of several celebrities, stars and the elite of our society. Host Tabish Hashmi asked the designer if clients come up with certain wishes. Nomi said, “They come up with various desires but there are levels to achieve those desires. Such as they want to emulate Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone.”

He was quick to point out that achieving that level of glamour isn’t always feasible.

“They need to understand that there’s a lot of difference, be it the structure, lifestyle and audience, yet they want to be like them.”

Nomi navigates the delicate balance between fantasy and reality with finesse.

In recent years, there has been growing criticism directed towards several designers who have been accused of setting exorbitantly high prices for their creations. Nomi, in particular, has garnered attention for being among the luxury brands that are out of reach for many. 

Earlier, when an audience member asked if Nomi would gift him an outfit for his female friend, the designer’s response was refreshingly honest. 

The designer acknowledged that his creations come with a hefty price tag, reflecting the hard work of countless artisans and the overhead costs of running a successful fashion empire. 

“I do have a luxury brand and it took me a lot of years to make that. 24 years of career is a long time.” 

Host Tabish Hashmi added, “Also, if luxury brands don’t sell their products at higher prices then people who want to buy luxury brands wouldn’t buy them.”

Understanding that fashion should complement individual personality and enhance one’s appearance is essential, along with the realization for brands that pricing should be reasonable given the current economic climate.
