FDCI & FDPC commit themselves to United Fashion Week
Aug '09
Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) and Fashion & Design Promotion Council (FDPC) - with due respect of the sentiments of its member designers - now stand committed to the larger mandate of a United Fashion Week. Both FDCI and FDPC will soon work upon a mutually inclusive fashion and design calendar free of all confrontational agendas.

Additionally, both the likeminded councils will soon engage in a dialogue to establish joint initiatives aimed at benefitting the fashion designers and professionals in the fashion, retail and luxury business.

The FDPC will move towards enabling various mechanisms of state support and industry assistance to all its stakeholders. The FDCI, on the other hand, will continue with its showcase and promotion of Indian designerwear as per its existing contracts and established calendar.

At the same time - while both FDPC and FDCI are free to undertake new initiatives for the benefit of the fashion industry - they will keep each other informed, to avoid any conflict in terms of timelines.

Supporting this development, Mr Sunil Sethi – President, FDCI said, “I am extremely elated at arriving at this amicable decision. At the end of the day, all designers are for a United Fashion Week and want to work together. Now all of FDCI's efforts will be focused to take this industry forward cohesively”.

The sentiment was echoed by Mr Raghavendra Rathore – Vice President, FDPC. “This delights me more as a designer than an office bearer. I am very happy for this development and would say that the forthcoming leadership at FDPC has a positive agenda to embark upon, starting on fresh note.”
