WIFW to open with Indo-Dutch fashion collection
Aug '12
Indian ace designer Suneet Varma and veteran Dutch designer Jan Taminiau have collaborated to create an exclusive collection to be showcased at the opening day of the Spring/Summer 2013 edition of the ‘Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week’ (WIFW) commencing on October 6, 2012.
The designer duo will present their collection as a part of the Indo-Dutch fashion collaboration supported by the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI). The Dutch government and FDCI have designed a three-year programme, which will work as a platform for knowledge exchange, inspiration, and network and opportunity development between the two fashion communities.
For their collection, the designers will be bringing the best of both the cultures combined with their own sensibilities of design to create a melange of east and west. The collection is expected to be heavy on Verma’s drape and embellishments with a magnificent touch of Taminiau’s construction and unique style of structuring.
Taminiau is known for his fascination for Indian embroidery and craftsmanship. The couturier from Holland has incorporated the famous saree draping and pleating techniques in many of his creations in the past. The 37-year-old Dutch designer commands a strong fan following amongst people like Princess Maxima of Netherlands and pop icon Lady Gaga.
Born in 1964, Suneet Verma is one of India's foremost couturiers. The designer is known to combine his strong design sensibility with meticulous craftsmanship to create ethereal and sophisticated creations for the women of today.
