Mumbai based designers Falguni and Shane Peacock declared that Big-budget Indian movies are setting trends in high-end fashion and costume designing: "Indian cinema and fashion have always gone hand in hand. In each time period, a fashion trend has evolved due to Indian cinema. So, for instance, the 1970s saw the hippie trend and flower power in Indian cinema. The current Indian cinema is very big on high-end fashion" told Falguni to IANS. When asked about the Indian fashion industry, they answered that people are becoming more aware of international brands and international designers, and celebrities are constantly spotted in the latest collection of these high-end brands and designer wear. They feel there is an influx of luxury brands and a lot of emerging talent in the Indian fashion industry.
The couple have designed for the likes of Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Madonna, Michelle Williams, Ashanti and Jennifer Lopez as well as Priyanka Chopra and Bipasha Basu back home. Falguni and Shane are currently working on the wedding dress of the famous tattoo artist Kat Von D with designing an underwater themed.
