World Class Kings: Tell us about your national costume?
Prakash: National Costume round audience were just screaming wow wow handsome Mr. USA. I was wearing the King size Shervani dress – its traditional & cultured Indian wear from India. Sherwani is a long coat resembling Achkan in styling and buttoned up to the collar and lengthwise it is usually below the knee. It adds to the charm and grace of men, especially the taller ones. The origin of Sherwani can be traced back in Central Asia during the times when it was the dress code of the Turkish and Persian nobles in the Delhi Sultanate and Mughal Empire. Usually Indian men spend lavishly on buying the Sherwani suit for the special occasion of their wedding. The Sherwani suit fitted quite close to the body and this is what lends it elegance. Thus, fitting was of utmost importance, as it has the capability to make or mar the whole look. Shervani was sponsored by well-known designer Peal Hossain.
