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. As part of the first year of the partnership between FDCI and Jakarta Fashion Week, Indonesian designer Novita Yunus will also present her collection on day 1.
Samant Chauhan will present his 'Golden Threads of Assam' collection on day 2 along with Anupama Dayal, Hemant & Nandita, Vineet Bahl, Pankaj & Nidhi and more. The designer lineup for day 3 of AIFW include Sahil Kochhar, Karishma Shahani Khan, Nikasha, Anju Modi, Namrata Joshipura, Malini Ramini, Ashima Leena and more.
Sustainable Fashion show will be held on day 4 of the fashion week. Designers like Kommal and Ratul Sood, Pawan Sahdev, Rohit Kamra, Sahil Aneja, Dhruv Vaish and more will showcase their collections on the last day of the event. The grand finale of the show will be presented by Tarun Tahiliani and Amit Aggarwal.
FDCI will also be presenting the Pearl Portfolio on the 19th March as an addition to the four-day fashion fiesta. (KD)
