“One day, Willi and I were driving in Bombay [now Mumbai], when he suddenly asked the driver to stop at a traffic circle: he loved the shorts the traffic policeman was wearing. He asked me to get the shorts for him and adapted these humble shorts, called the ‘Bombay Short’ in his next collection.”
—Vijay Agarwal, chairman and founder, Creative Group Inc.
