The Ministry of Textiles, Government of India, has set forth a new initiative to promote handlooms, in collaboration with the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) and the Central Cottage Industries Corporation (CCIC).
 
The three bodies will work together to assist, develop, encourage and support traditional Indian weaves.
 
The first exhibition under the new initiative, titled ‘Sarang’, was held in New Delhi, where two of the leading FDCI designers – Anju Modi and Rohit Bal – presented an exclusive peacock-inspired collection.
 
Under the initiative, five designers will display an exclusive collection every month over a period of one year.
 
Mr. Sunil Sethi, FDCI Chief, said the Ministry of Textiles is promoting Indian traditional handlooms in a big way and the FDCI will be working in association with the Ministry.
 
He said Indian fashion is about “fashion with substance” and the new initiative will give a bigger role for Indian handlooms and textile industry.
 
FDCI, along with its leading designers, will support traditional textiles and weavers in order to boost the Indian fashion industry, and thus herald the beginning of a fashion revolution in the country, he added.
