GQ India and Sketches

GQ launched their Indian version this month and they featured a few pages of testimonials from artists, models, actors, buisnessmen, sportsmen and designers. The designers include Etro (Kean Etro), Burberry (Christopher Bailey), Moschino, Dolce and Gabbana, Tommy Hilfiger, Dior Homme (Kris Van Assche), Paul Smith, Ermenegildo Zegna, Gucci (Frida Giannini), Lanvin,  Canali, Rohit Bal and a few more Indian designers. Along with a few words where sketches or already made garments. Some of the sketches are shown below (sketched by me referring to the original drawings).
First up Burberry, although you might have already guessed. The belted version of the indian kurta as discussed in a previous post looks amazing and the trousers had a shine like the ones in their SS 09 collection.
The second and third pictures are of Ermenegildo Zegna. Featuring modified versions of the indian kurtas.

Fourth look. No its not Etro, if you guessed looking at the trousers. Its my design. This sketch is to kick off a new campaign as discussed in my last post. The design features a military inspired kurta, a paisley scarf tied as a belt and a paisley trouser. Let me know what you think and if you would like to contribute to the campaign by sending in your sketches or designs let me know by email at

Oh and click on the images to enlarge - you will see it much better that way.
