Six budding designers are set to present their collections at Amazon India Fashion Week Spring Summer 2016 in association with Maybelline NY that begins in New Delhi on October 7, the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) said in a statement.

The FDCI said that giving these budding designers a platform to showcase their collections is part of its resolve to nurture fresh talent.

Sunil Sethi, President, Fashion Design Council of India, said, “We are happy to announce that these uninhibited style gurus will bring a fresh impetuous to the floor, making it an ideal amalgamation of contemporary and traditional designs. They are going to set the bar high by infusing oodles of energy. Elle, our magazine partner has been a frontrunner in scouting for interesting newcomers as 'First Cut' designers, who are looking beyond what's trendy to create a lexicon of fashion.”

Designers in this category are Love Birds, Ragini Ahuja, Dhruv Kapur, Anavila, Shalini James and Nimish Shah (stall designer).

Love Birds is label for a modern woman who leads an active life. They are keen on dressing the global woman of the metropolitans. Ikai by Ragini Ahuja aims to create incredibly practical clothing with relaxed fits and natural textiles that exude luxury without any pretence.

Dhruv Kapur's designs employ discreet detailing to create luxurious, timeless, elegant, utilitarian, unisex clothes from fine, natural, locally sourced fabrics. Anavila is centered around comfortable and earthy hand woven textiles that are inspired by nature. Shalini James's label is an exotic potpourri of everything Indian; in silhouettes that are sometimes ethnic, sometimes contemporary, and mostly a unique mix of both.

Nimish Shah who is showcasing his collection at the stall has a range of sophisticated separates that are instilled with a sense of modernity to create novel expressions.(SH)
