Prime Minister Narendra Modi is finally heading off to the United States of America today. And yes he has got himself a ‘designer’ wardrobe designed by excellent designer for bespoke menswear – Troy Costa. Obviously Troy refused to say anything on him designing for the PM. Modi must have made him sign a ‘non disclosure’ agreement. But yes Troy Costa has designed Narendra Modi’s wardrobe for his US visit.
If you wondering how Modi came to hire the services of Troy, it is rather simple to understand the trail for those who follow Costa’s work. He has who’s-who among his clientele like Hrithik Roshan, Leander Paes, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Raj Salgaocar, Vijaypat Singhania, Mukesh Ambani and his sons and many other luminaries. Troy’s forte is his knowledge of tailoring and his impeccable construction.
Being a Goan, Troy Costa was first patronized by Goa based tycoon, Raj Salgaocar. Raj introduced Mukesh Ambani (his brother-in-law) to Troy and now Mukesh Bhai suggested Costa to Narendra Modi. Wonder how much liberty Modi has given him to do his wardrobe. Seems it will be more of Bandhgalas in easy fit and not Costa’s slim-fit style. Mukesh Ambani is the de-facto advisor of our Prime Minister and that’s why lobbying firm – Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co (KKR) President is one of the six top corporate honchos Modi is going to meet. Ambani hired KKR’s services when they started exploring oil in Alaska. It is KKR who got Mukesh Ambani on the Board of The Bank of America.
