Indian-origin designer voted audience favourite at US fashion show

Washington, Sep 26 (IANS) The audience at the Bellevue Fashion Week in the US have voted an Indian-origin woman as their favourite independent designer at the event’s inauguration ceremony earlier this week, a media report said.

The owner of VARSHA brand of “meticulously crafted” work wear for the “power women”, Varsha Agarwal, got the audience vote on September 23, said on Friday.

“Every year after the show, you could hear people expressing who they would have chosen. It’s really important for the guests to come to feel like they’ve had a hand in the decision,” said Jennifer Leavitt, vice-president of marketing for the Kemper Development Company, which organises the annual event.

Preceding their final presentation, independent designers participating at the show get the opportunity to work with the world’s leading fashion experts for nine months.

Coming from a demanding business consulting background, Aggarwal’s brand aims to bring “style back to the workplace”, her website says. She also holds a degree in fashion design.
