The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) will dedicate the first two days of the upcoming Amazon India Fashion Week to be held October 12-16, 2016 in New Delhi, to the power of Indian handlooms. 23 designers will display their designs, interpreting the myriad possibilities handlooms offer and capture the handloom legacy of various regions of India.

Fashion designers who will use handloom fabrics in their collections include, Abraham & Thakore, Anavila, Anita Dongre, Gaurav Jai Gupta, Krishna Mehta, Payal Pratap, Rina Dhaka, Samant Chauhan, Shruti Sancheti, Urvashi Kaur, and Viral, Ashish & Vikrant.

“The languishing handloom sector has been resuscitated by the #iwearhandloom campaign started by textile minister Smriti Irani,” Sunil Sethi, president of FDCI said. “In continuation with this, FDCI and its designers are making a difference in preserving the heritage of the country through our conceptual shows.” (AR)
