Mawi to showcase her signature repertoire at LFW
Feb '14
UK-based accessory designer Mawi returns to her homeland after 12 years of establishing the infamous MAWI brand in London. Mawi is ready to return to her Indian roots with a spectacular show. 
Creations from her latest collection ‘Indian Odyssey’ will be part of her collection at the upcoming Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014.
The avant-garde fashion accessories designer will collaborate with one of India’s most celebrated fashion designers, Gaurav Gupta. Mawi will present thirty looks of bejeweled decadence that will be complimented by an outstanding collection by the Indian couturier. DHL, co-sponsors of Lakmé Fashion Week, will present the Mawi show on 13th March 2014.
The Manipur born designer spent most of her childhood travelling the world, an influence clearly manifested in Mawi’s signature juxtaposition of traditional and contemporary aesthetics. The homecoming showcase brings MAWI’s stratospheric vision to life through a meeting of cultures, craft and traditions. 
The show is set to be one of the key highlights of the season, celebrating MAWI’s stellar debut on the Indian catwalk with Gaurav Gupta’s elegant designs, chronicling a retrospective journey through landmark MAWI pieces.   
“I am very excited to showcase my collection in my home country for the first time. It’s an honor to be a part of Lakmé Fashion Week. I hope this feature on the Indian ramp is a first of many more to come”, says Mawi Keivom. 
“I am thrilled with this unique association and have enjoyed every bit of working with Mawi. I have specially created garments that perfectly accentuate her accessories collection.  I’m eagerly looking forward to presenting my collection adorned with her beautiful jewellery and accessories” added Gaurav Gupta. 
“Fashion Week is the biggest event in the fashion calendar and a perfect fit for DHL as we offer the entire logistics value chain of the fashion industry - from material purchasing to the sampling business, to quality control of production and direct delivery to the boutiques of international fashion companies. 
Each season we present talented designers to fashion enthusiasts and our customers and this season we are very excited to present Mawi and Gaurav,” says RS Subramanian, SVP & MD, India, DHL Express. 
“Mawi's Indian origin is manifested in her eclectic designs. We are extremely proud to showcase her in India for the very first time at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. Her collaboration with Gaurav Gupta, a contemporary Indian fashion whiz, promises a juxtaposition of traditional
