Azara & Virtues to debut at Miami fashion week

Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) today announced that two of its budding talents, Alpana and Neeraj of Azara and Ashish, Viral & Vikrant of Virtues will showcase their collection at the 10th anniversary of the Miami Fashion Week.

The two Indian labels will be showcased on April 12 under 'Emerging East Designer' category. This exchange is facilitated by the Fashion Design Council of India.

Scheduled between April 9-13, 2008, over 70 of the world's most talented designers in women's eveningwear and prêt-a-porter, men's wear, lingerie, swimwear and accessories will rock the city of Miami, as fashion buyers and enthusiasts assemble at the leading international fashion event of the United States.

Azara is the brainchild of the budding duo Alpana and Neeraj. For the first time, Alpana and Neeraj showcased their collection at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW), a few weeks ago, during the Autumn/Winter 2008 showcase. Both graduated from NIFT Delhi in 2000.

Neeraj has represented India in the prestigious “Admiralty Needle” contest held annually in Russia. Expressing their excitement, Alpana and Neeraj said, “Participation in the upcoming tenth anniversary of the Miami Fashion Week is a unique opportunity that emerging designers like us have received, thanks to FDCI.

It feels like a dream to be able to showcase at an international fashion week so early in our careers. We are ecstatic about our selection and will give it our best shot at being one of the best representations of India there.”
