AIFW to see series of 'Fashion Forward' talks

Oct '15
The forthcoming Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) will see a series of 'Fashion Forward' talks which explore design processes, taking up uniquely Indian aesthetics and juxtaposing them in the international context.

“Three-days of conversations from October 8-10, 2015 with an esteemed panel will mirror broader issues like textile interpretation, art movements to the digitalisation of fashion,” a press release from FDCI said.

FDCI president Sunil Sethi said, “From trend forecasts, cultural identity to nationalistic focus through crafts, the talks are an attempt to offer a nuanced approach to things that often hide behind the curtain of glamour.”

“It bridges the gap between two extremes conformity and revolutionary putting the spotlight on what shapes our communication through what we wear,” Sethi added.

On October 08 at 12:30 pm, Border Fall will host a session titled 'An Eternal Feast: Feeding the Five Senses', which is intended to provide a larger context to understanding design disciplines, using the five senses as a theme.

Each speaker will share insights from an area which they continue to reference and is relevant to their practice, taking the audience through a sensory experience.

On October 9 at 12.00 pm, WGSN, a leading fashion and consumer trend forecasting service in association with Amazon will present the Spring-Summer 2016 global trends and insights relevant for Indian women's wear.

Revelations of seasonal forecast themes, will illustrate how these concepts will be impacting global commercial retail collections, and explore how these trends can be translated into Indian fashion and ethnic wear.

“This will provide inspiration and product direction enabling brands and manufacturers to make informed decisions before going into the next season with relevance to the Indian market,” FDCI stated.

On October 10 again at 12 pm, there will be a discussion between Bandana Tewari and designer Anamika Khanna about her inimitable design signature that transcends the debate of traditional versus modernity. (AR)
