IFFD Founder & Director Avinash Pathania about the event: “I am very eager to organize IRW as I know how difficult it must be for upcoming designers to find the right audience to showcase their designs for. IFFD is providing a profitable platform for them. This is a one of a kind event that brings together a diverse group of designers under one banner.”
Kiran Kheva, Co Founder and Director of IFFD, adds: “IRW is a very unique fashion event which is bringing a lot of designers from different reigns and backgrounds together. There are so many Indian designers out there that I did not even know existed, so I'm interested to showcase their work to the world. It's opening my eyes to new ideas, to see how designers have interpreted Indian culture into their designs. We finally get to celebrate their work during this special event!"
Referring to the development of the idea behind IFFD, the director duo says: “The idea to establish IFFD was to give these young people a chance to nurture their talents and encourage their growth by giving them a chance to make connections, find buyers and rediscover themselves as artists.
"We can easily connect with these designers because we are also young and try to make our voices heard. We can imagine how difficult it must be for these aspirants to find their foothold in a sector that is already filled with many amazing designers. Nonetheless, they shouldn't stop trying and neither will we.”Don’t underestimate these young designers, after all they are the veteran designers of the future!
