Ashley Rebello lives by the old mantra by Mark Twain “Clothes make the man”, so when his designs are being by shown off at fashion shows, by Bollywood megastars, beautiful brides, and sexy models in photo-shoots, this is the inspiration behind them. Ashley Rebello argues that clothes are not just something you wear to cover your skin, but that a great outfit is like skin; he believes that outfits should be worn as if you were made for them.
Ashley Rebello has a long roster of A-list celebs that he’s designed for, including Sonakshi Sinha, Aishwarya Rai Bachan, and Katrina Kaif. Male celebrities include Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Shahid Kapur, Imran Khan and Shahrukh Khan. Benefiting from over a decade and a half of experience in the fashion industry, he was nominated for an award for “Best Costume Design” for Meenaxi: Tale of 3 Cities in 2005.
The designer continues to be an ambassador for the National Institute of Fashion Design. He explains that he uses this as an opportunity to talk to and observe the current trends of the youth. He believes this was a good investment, because the costumes designed for the movie “Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na” were a success and many youths could empathise with styles of the main characters.
