Lakme Fashion Week's continued initiative to send Indian designers abroad to participate in foreign fashion weeks, has also attracted a lot of international interest in our designers.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Spring/Summer 2009
Lakme Fashion Week, is also pleased to announce dates for the following season (Spring/Summer 2009). This will be held from 20th to 24th October 2008, at NCPA.

Anil Chopra, Vice President, Lakmé Unilever said, “Lakmé's legacy of beauty and fashion continues with yet another trendsetting season of Lakmé Fashion Week. What makes this season extremely interesting is the inclusion of retail in our focus.

We plan to make fashion more accessible – we are yet again defining the future of fashion. Also, the world is sitting up and taking notice of us, with a fabulous international contingent lined up for this season.

We have diligently been trying to integrate Indian fashion in the global arena and I'm glad to announce that our hard work is paying off with a host of international buyers, media and people associated with the international fashion world!” he added.
