As I was walking I saw some in the audience loved it, while others were a bit taken aback. But thank you madam, for giving me the opportunity in my early days as a model,’ John told reporters here.
He was in town to unveil the logo of the first ever Kolkata Fashion and Lifestyle Week.
Commenting on his fashion statement, he said: ‘For me, the best fashion is the one I am comfortable with.’
John has no favourite designers, but said: ‘Among Kolkata designers Sabyasachi (Mukherjee) is brilliant.’
Encouraging the young designers, he said: ‘You all have a long way to go. Remember, fashion is not about actors who wear your dresses, but about the dress itself.’
