In the world of weddings especially, the need for luxury and niche services have increased three-fold in the last few years.

Luxury In India
Luxury is indulgence of the senses. There is an order to this indulgence. Together the senses define our context and our civilizations. Throughout history, luxury has defined clusters of civilizations. Early strongholds of prosperity in history clustered along the Nile and Euphrates as well as the Silk Road. Babylon, Persepolis and Samarkand defined luxury of that era and the then prevalent civilizations prospered. When the Phoenicians prevailed because of their extensive trade, the Mediterranean flourished economically. Strongholds of Mediterranean prosperity then were Athens and Rome; cities like Florence and Venice evolved eventually into the first clusters of luxury hubs that gave rise to technological and aesthetic revolutions.
During the Industrial Revolution London, Manchester and Liverpool flourished economically and, once again, redefined luxury. In the 19th and 20th centuries significant commercial hubs developed on the US – East Coast and afterwards on the US – West Coast. These changes in economic geography have been triggered by discoveries and inventions.
Luxury consumption spearheads a country’s growth economy.
India is set to become the world’s fastest wealth creator in the next few years. Currently India has over 150,000 millionaires. Over a million and a half Indians have more than 100,000 USD in liquid wealth. The Indian customer is spending more on luxury items, whose market is pegged at a whopping Rs 650 billion (US$14.6 billion) and growing at about 14 per cent a year, a new study reveals- Affluence is indeed an indulgence of the senses. Affluence’s greatest enemy is vulgarity, sharing its best virtue. The Indian Luxury Expo is truly a platform to share the afJluence of a nation. And participate in it with revelry and hope.
