Umair Zafar to design outfits for Ms Bikini India contest

May '12
Mumbai-based fashion designer Umair Zafar has been selected to design costumes and outfits for the Ms Bikini India 2012 beauty pageant. He will design some of the bikinis, sarongs and even outfits for the Indian Wear round.

Says Umair Zafar, 'I am happy to be part of the mega glamour event Ms Bikini India 2012. My bikini designs will incorporate trendy and stylish Indian embroidered embellishments to promote Indian crafts and craftsmen.

“As times are changing and so is the definition of fashion, we cannot restrict our crafts only for traditional outfits. There is immense scope to explore, embroidery and embellishments for lingerie and bikinis as well.

“Bikinis and lingerie need not be the 'plain-jane' version. We have beautiful thread embroidered motifs especially Persian crafts and handiwork. I will be designing the Bikini Collection for Ms Bikini India 2012."

"The USP of my collection would be different embroidered embellishments like Lucknowi chikan kaari, bead, sequence and kasab work. The embellishments will be inspired by various rulers of India and their official stamps, emblems etc.

“Fashion designer Umair Zafar who has been designing clothes nearly for the last 7 years is clearly one of the favourite designers amongst TV artistes and Bollywood actors. Some of his clientele include Shahbaaz Khan, Vivian Dsena, Vishal Gandhi, Padmini Kolhapuri, Geeta Basra, Aditi Sharma, Nisha Kothari, Sayali Bhagat, Deepshikha Nagpal, Yukta Mookhey, Rituparna Sen Gupta to name a few. There are many others, but celebs are very secretive about the source of their clothing and at least another ten of Umair's clients requested us not to mention names."
