Wings4Fashion is an endeavour to give an international platform to the upcoming designers of India and make their name in the industry. The ICICI Bank UK Plc is one of the major sponsors of the event.
"Often the astronomical costs associated with the participation at the fashion events discourage young designers. However, at Wings4Fashion we are providing them with the perfect platform to showcase their collection in a fashion event at an international level. I see a lot of potential in our Indian designers and have always desired to provide them with the right platform to grow and present their art. This is an attempt to bring forward the skillful designers of India and showcase their talent to the world," said D Kadikar, founder and CEO of Fataka Fashions at a press release by the company.
"I am extremely excited at being part of this event which is a wonderful platform to showcase one's designs at an international event and also benefit from expertise of others," said Poonam Bhagat, celebrity fashion designer and past member of board of governors for FDCI, who will also be showcasing at the event and is on the panel of experts.
The event is being organised as a Trade Event & Fashion Show (September 14-15, 2019) in London. The two-day long event expects various stakeholders including fashion incubators, mentors, trade buyers, bloggers and media to remain present during the event. Along with the fashion show, there will be pitching sessions and one on one meetings. This platform will also allow budding designers and brands to network and pitch for funding and mentoring support from the panel of successful fashion industry veterans and venture capital funds specialising in fashion industry. Pitching session will be followed by Networking event which will allow designers to connect with fashion industry experts and fashion media. "The event will prove to be the launchpad for the many UK-based as well as Indian fashion designers," added Kadikar.
"We are aware of the problems and obstacles faced by fashion designers and fashion entrepreneurs in their first few years and this event will provide everything a fashion designer or fashion brand may need to succeed and grow in the fiercely competitive fashion industry. Fataka Fashions through this event wants them to concentrate on creating fabulous fashion and let us become the catalyst to reach a wider audience," said Premal Badiani, one of the mentors and core member at Wings4Fashion.
