Top Ten Fashion Designers Worldwide
The Red-Carpet will not be ‘The Red-Carpet’, without the glamorous, eye catching outfits donned by the celebs; The Oscars, The Grammys and every other big do calls for new, outstanding and trendsetting designs meticulously created by dedicated artists. Designing an outfit takes more than talent, it does not start and end with cutting and stitching; today, designing has become an art where the artist uses the perfectly crafted human form as his canvas to create a beauty which would fetch him not only money but fame and accolades.
