Wrogn reflects on Virat's own sense of style off the field
Today celebrities are considered by fans as style icons. This has led to celebrity fashion brands.
A celebrity’s personal style becomes a talking point especially when they are in the eye of the media.
They are two subjects which cannot be separated and over time, celebrities themselves have realised that this would become a viable market.
Hence this signalled the evolution of “Celebrity Fashion Brands”.
The West is in the midst of celebrity-led fashion companies.
American rapper Kanye West’s brand Yeezy has become one of the West’s most popular celebrity brands.
The company is known for its footwear and are very sought after due to limited releases.
Business Insider reported in 2018 that: “Streetwear insiders believe the brand could enter the Top 3 Hottest Brands before the year is out.”
The success of international celebrities has seen Indian stars begin to release their own brands.
Many A-listers have either launched their own fashion brands or have collaborated with already established fashion companies.
John Abraham was the first Indian actor to release his clothing brand in 2006.
Indian celebrities have a massive following, so it is not difficult to get fans to purchase these items.
The celebrity is the unique selling point in making the brand a success.
