Over 140 designers will present their cutting-edge designs through runway and exhibition at the 29th edition of the Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) Autumn-Winter 2017, in turn making it a treat for buyers and the audience. It will also celebrate the formidable repertoire of veteran designer Madhu Jain The event will be held from March 15-18 in New Delhi.

The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), the organiser of the AIFW, has announced the show schedule of the fashion week, which is being planned in association with Maybelline New York.

The collection designed to commemorate thirty years of the Madhu Jain label will infuse the revivalist spirit that personifies her life-work. With a shared passion for India's indigenous textiles tradition, FDCI and Jain have always believed in showcasing the best of what our country has to offer. Jain will showcase a 22-ensemble suite that celebrates her thirty years’ journey into the world of Indian textiles on the first day of AIFW.

"Today, when India has carved its space on the global map of fashion, we have veteran designers like Madhu Jain to thank for its recognition beyond borders. She has been influential in championing a cause, that we at FDCI hold dear to our heart – craft revival and textile conservation," said Sunil Sethi, president, FDCI.

"FDCI has been the wind beneath the sail of many in the Indian design fraternity. It gives me immense hope that there are others who share my deep, abiding respect for our varied and rich crafts heritage. My dream is to optimise India's artisanal wealth and change the face of the handlooms sector," said Jain.

Celebrated designers like Rohit Bal, Suket Dhir, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Rin Dhaka, Shaina NC, Urvashi Kaur and more will present their collections on the first day of the show.
