Mr Shankarsinh Vaghela, Union Textile Minister, yesterday said that the Government will sponsor Fashion Council of India (FCI), for providing prominent platform to the young and talented designers of the country. This decision has been taken by the officials due to constant tiffs which has been taking place in the Fashion Development Council (FDCI), the prominent body for fashion industry.

The conference was attended by renowned designers and entrepreneurs related to fashion sector, who together with Union Minister discussed various ways through which this industry can reach higher levels. As of now, there was no platform to represent the whole textile apparel industry of the country.

There will be 30 percent reservation for the budding designers and FCI would also send five toppers from the prestigious National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) to foreign countries for further enhancing their creative genius.

Help of foreign designers to will be taken to organize fashion shows that will display the collections made by designers.

However, the Ministry made is extremely clear that it will not control FCI but will only provide guidelines.
