He is known for reviving Indian heritage through the ubiquitous gown and the indigenous sari, which has withstood the onslaught of time. A debutant, Sanjay Garg of Raw Mango label, has been given the honour of being the opening designer at the Amazon India Fashion Week Spring Summer 2016 in association with Maybelline NY which begins on October 7 at New Delhi's NSIC Grounds.

“We are excited to have Sanjay Garg open the AIFW SS16, as he is a craft-lover. He has worked as a purist, never deviating from the 'I love India' theme. He will set the right tone for the fashion week, which celebrates the myriad crafts of the country,” Sunil Sethi, President, Fashion Design Council of India, said.

Garg said, “It's a matter of great honour to open the Amazon India Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2016. This opportunity is a testament of FDCI's effort to bring Indian textile at the forefront of the fashion industry and truly celebrates the 'Make in India' initiative.”

Mubarikpur-born Garg, studied at the IICD (Indian Institute of Crafts and Design), Jaipur then went on to hone his skills at NIFT (Delhi), before launching his label which retailed saris, stoles and fabrics. The designer with a penchant for humble motifs is known for his loom-stage innovations on fabrics, mostly Chanderi.

“The garments in this collection aim to bridge the gap between textile and fashion, and at the same time, blur the categories of traditional and modern, old and new, past and present. The garments present technical advancements in Mashru that make the 'old' textile contemporary, while retaining the luxuriousness that has always been an important part of it,” Garg said. (SH)
