Back in those days fashion designing wasn’t a respectable career ,people use to think spoiled brats choose fashion,even today that mindset is still there but it is evolving. .In today’s era textile and apparels are most important and leading industry in the world.Textile industry does hold unique position and helps contributing in country’s GDP.I am sure there are lots of designer’s who has shaped fashion industry. According to me below jotted down designer’s are pioneers.How they have immerged through their struggles.There are designer’s who never had formal education ,but they have made it big in industry.

He started with a retail industry as sales man at brooks brother, before launching his first collection of neckties.He was selling them at large departmental stores, including blooming dales under the brand name “polo”. Ralph Lauren created classic clothing line for menswear.lauren invented classy sports wear. Though he achieved immense success as a designer but company had a share of low point where he had to pay huge amount of money to settle a case. Despite every hurdles he immerged like a true star.
Sabyasachi Mukherjee(Indian designer)
This man is a magician in his craft.Almost every bride dreams about wearing Sabyasachi lehenga on her wedding. His work is surreal. But Sabyasachi also has his share of struggle,He wanted to became a designer, parents refused his desire to purse a career in fashion. So he ran away from his home to work as waiter in Goa .He even sold his books to appear in nift exams. Then slowly and gradually he started off his label with mere 20k,from there on he never looked back. His choice of fabric, embroidery, craftsmanship is a work of a genius. And I love his show “band baaja bride” with my most favourite host ambika anand they both are fabulous in their profession. According to me Sabyasachi looks most generous person in this world.
