Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) and Education New Zealand (ENZ) will be organising a fashion event ‘Runway to New Zealand’ based on the theme “Future World Connection” which will be held in New Delhi on May 12, 2016.

The event will display garments designed with indigenous and sustainable fabrics by 12 students from India and New Zealand.

“Sustainability is the future of fashion and the FDCI has always supported style with a soul and it has been a recurring leitmotif in our repertoire. This interesting exchange between students from New Zealand and India will make it a spectacular rendition of cross cultural references, creating a surreal experience,” said Sunil Sethi, president, FDCI.

Six students from the Pearl Academy (Noida, Jaipur and New Delhi) and National Institute of Fashion Technology (New Delhi) will compete with 6 students from New Zealand-Massey University and AUT University. Two winning Indian students will receive a two-week internship with the participating New Zealand universities. Ace designers Amit Agarwal, Rina Dhaka and Rohit Bal will be judging the event.

New Zealand high commissioner Grahame Morton, said, “We are really excited to have ENZ work with FDCI to host this first joint competition for teams of young KIWI and Indian student designers to develop garments that strongly reference the fabrics, cultural heritage and flair of both countries.   We very much look forward to our fashion institutions and businesses hosting the two Indian winners in New Zealand this year and to the personal collaborations seeded here continuing well into the future.” (HO)
