Is Narendra Modi Country's Latest Fashion Icon?

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is definitely a Prime Minister with a difference! Be it his daring rhetoric skill, his innovative idea to address the students on Children’s Day and of course his stunning dressing style has left even the American media in a dizzy. The 'Modi Kurta’ with Bvlgari shades and a Movado watch is becoming as celebrated as his style sense and his controversial political past.

According to latest news three major US publications - Time, New York Times and the Washington Post are going gaga over the Prime Minister’s Narendra Modi’s trademark 'Modi Kurta' as Indian PM prepares to depart for much anticipated September summit with US President Barack Obama. The most revered publication of US Time described Narendra Modi as ‘India's New Prime Minister Is the Country's Latest Fashion Icon!’


To make Modi’s dressing statement more iconic for his six-day visit to the US the latest news is that the Prime Minster has hired Troy Costa, a renowned Mumbai designer, who designs for Bollywood stars, to create the outfits that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would adorn in his US visit. 

Political analyst predict that hiring fashion designer Troy Costa to design attires of PM has given rise to speculation that Modi would go for suit and tie for his US visit, since he usually favours crisp, half-sleeved kurtas, churidar pyjamas and Nehru jackets. 

When contacted Troy Costa he declined to share what he has designed for Modi but said, "I'd rather let my product speak than me personally."

Fashion experts say Modi, 64, has taken political dressing to a new level. Apart from his trademark kurtas and Nehru jackets, his use of colour makes him a fashion icon. The prime minister's power dressing is in line with his message of economic reform.
