India's New Fashion-Style Icon- Narendra Modi

We all know Narendra Modi once belonged to ordinary boy from a middle class family  and life was literally dark when he was young.  As a child Modi helped his father sell tea at the Vadnagar railway station. Narendra Modi has truly set an example for every one.

Transformation of a politician- 
he has a pinstripe suit with his name woven into the design of the stripes.
Gone are those days when we found all our Indian politicians flaunting with their unkempt appearances, pot bellies and shabby outfits. As in today’s era politicians are known as a new emerging style icon for the youth generation. And the image makeover is helping him connect with the young audience in more than many ways possible. Who says one cannot look fashionable in a dhoti and kurta?? Transforming a phase From a tea seller to prime minister and from prime minister to fashion icon. Even he wouldn't have imagined that his destiny would take such a sweet turn. 


But today as being a fashion connoisseur It's difficult to ignore Narendra Modi’s signature half-sleeve kurtas (and churidaars), even if you are not remotely interested in politics.
Even before gaining popularity as being a PM candidate or being elected as a PM, he was as stylish as he is today. During his chief ministerial era he use to flaunt his dressing sense and getting in-cashed (media cover/talk /gossips around)
Modi is greatly influenced by Rajesh Khanna's style
and that is why he buttons up his kurta tight till his neck.



 The man in dhoti did not plan to be a trend setter, the way he carried himself so comfortably and the sense of mixing and matching colours  made him what he is and carry it off as a style statement.
At his residence in Gandhinagar,
Modi can be spotted wearing his stylish
Texan hats along with jeans and t-shirts
His semi formals and that bright colours -- from lime green to canary yellow and even bright blue,  reflects his can-do attitude and readiness to try out new things. 
Before choosing his cloth he never forget about the target audience and the message of his attire.
 These days he  has  started experimenting with more lively yet muted pastel colours.The day when he was appointed as BJP's PM candidate, he wore a pistachio green coloured kurta which became significant to the point of being called as the 'Modi Kurta.'
 The world has never seen an Indian Prime Minister like him: he never hesitate to flaunts his stylish Bvlagri spectacles frames, expensive Movado watch and swanky Mont Blanc pens collection.

 He has an incredibly simple sartorial sensibility, his choice of accessories are rather flashy. he regularly wear sports designer watches and glasses.. He changes his hand-made shirts multiple times a day to match the background of locations where he’s speaking publicly. And his preference for short-sleeve kurtas has been viewed as a symbol for his efforts to modernize the country. The most interesting thing about him is, he wears clothes depending upon the situation. The situation acts as a theme to him.
For example  During the US visit, where approx 1 lakh people were gathered at Madison Square Garden in New York, and crores and crore people were watching him live ,Modi wore a pale orange bandhani over a yellow kurta-pajama , trying to connect with his roots to the desi audience. 
However, during the UN General Assembly while he was international heads of state, he  wore sombre and solid tones of charcoal, grey, navy blue and black and silhouettes like Nehru jackets. He tried to  maintain a balance of Eastern and Western sensibilities. The Modi Kurta itself has a long story behind it. You will believe it was Modi's own design, and he cut the sleeves short to create space in his jhola. Once he said  during an interview. He rarely consult with designer, once said his sense of dressing is God gifted.

.
It is rightly said that Fashion plays a very prominent role in image building.

 Modi has proved that this theory is even applicable for politicians as well. He dress to impress, and his dress makes  statement. Obama said, Modi is a new style icon. 

He taught us we should wear something that is appropriate for that particular occasion and suitable to place and time.
