LFW, in partnership with FDCI, will soon release the calendar featuring designers from New Delhi, Mumbai and other parts of India.
FDCI and LFW will jointly present the opening show on March 16 and culminate with the Lakme Absolute Grand Final on March 21.
“The pandemic has darkened the clouds, it will add a silver lining to the fashion industry and help sharpen the needs of a rapidly changing world.
“Lakme, RISE Worldwide and FDCI will now have a common purpose and belonging as we both reinvent the wheel in uncertain times. We are delighted to present this fashion week together, ”said Sunil Sethi, President of the FDCI in a statement.
Ashwath Swaminathan, innovation manager at Lakme, said the team looks forward to the partnership, which will open up growth avenues “for all stakeholders”.
The event will feature a GenNext talent discovery program for designers and also promote modeling talent through FDCI’s #GetNoticed Model Hunt.
FDCI and LFW will also continue their buyers’ programs launched last season.
Jaspreet Chandok, Head – Lifestyle Businesses at RISE Worldwide, said this collaboration will help elevate the fashion industry to new heights.
