They have been defying all odds and setting their own rules. The secret of their successful team work lies in their approach to eclecticism and attention to details.

Reinforcing their place as the leading luxury couture designers in the industry, Falguni and Shane Peacock embarks on a milestone year as their label turns fifteen. Their design sensibility of blending edgy western cuts and Indian embellishments has won them many accolades in the industry. Falguni Shane Peacock is also probably the only label in India that is harnessing the benefits of merging their expertise in fashion with the most cutting edge technologies. The designer-duo is accredited for taking Indian fashion to Hollywood circuits with their glamorous and spectacular designs. In an exclusive interview, Falguni and Shane get candid about their design philosophy, journey in fashion and future plans. Edited excerpts…

An incredible journey spanning 15 years. How has been the experience so far? If you have to highlight three turning points from it, what would those be?

Fifteen years is sure a good long time and it has been a humbling experience, but we still feel there is still a lot left to achieve. We are striving to make all of that and more, happen. Looking back, we think the three milestone moments would be – The time when we showcased our collection at the New York Fashion Week for the first time. The opportunity to dress up Beyoncé for the Wearable Art Gala in 2018 in custom-made gold foil gown with a 3D trail. The lead Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie dressing up in a FSP outfit for the FIFA World Cup performance in 2010.

Your designs are synonymous with global aesthetics with an inherent Indian soul. Where do you seek creative inspiration from?

It comes naturally. I think more than inspiration it’s our vision that drives us. We follow the vision and then everything else follows.

Working as a duo to create design harmony is a feat in itself. How do you deal with conflict of interests?

We always keep the greater good of the brand in mind and come to a conclusion or a middle way whenever we have a difference of opinion. It is all about the brand for us at the end of the day.

What according to you is the favourite part of being a fashion designer?
