There is an old adage, ‘you get what you pay for’. But when it comes to fashion, the statement proves to be true. You pay low prices and you get low quality. However, with high-end designer clothing, that old adage often goes south. You pay far more than what you get in return.
Smart people understand that value is about what something is worth, not just what it costs. Spending only a few bucks on clothes that start to fall apart after a few washes is not a bargain.
A naive person might assume that you are getting what you pay for when you buy high-end designer brands. While the fabrics and construction are generally much better than fast fashion, you are mainly paying for marketing. Advertising in big magazines is not cheap, you know.
The conglomerates that sell high-end designer brands spend massive amounts of money to convince buyers that their brands are prestigious. That is what you are paying for. Nobody wants to wear clothes that look and feel cheap. But paying an arm and a leg on a dress that is the same quality and style as the one you can get for a much lower price is also not too smart.
To each his own, we guess. So, lately, the Mera Naam Yusuf Hai actor Mansha Pasha was spotted wearing a stunning outfit. Taking to Twitter, a user pointed out how much she loved Pasha’s dress until she found out its worth.
Yes, it is for Rs93,000!
Netizens are shocked!
Asking the right questions…
Details of the dress
The dress is by Souchaj and from the collection of Sunehrey Pal ’21. As can be seen, it is a lavender long kurta ‘adorned with embroidered borders, bold motifs intricately enhanced with iconic techniques; paired with cuff trousers in raw silk with contrast lime organza dupatta embroidered with fern leaves in multi colors’, as Souchaj’s official page describes it.
Well, what can we say? Surprised, but not so surprised since yesterday we just discovered an airplane-shaped handbag costing more than an actual airplane! Oh yes, you heard that right. Just imagine, it is not even an airplane but just a bag shaped like an airplane for $39,000.
By the way, have you seen the world’s most expensive shoes with diamonds? Daylight robbery is all the rage!
