12 Shows, 35 designers, 3 days all about fashion! India Runway Week is back and will take place from the 19th of September until the 21st of September at the Ocean Pearl Retreat – Chattarpur, India. The Indian Federation for Fashion Development (IFFD) has received 250 applications from young and talented designers from across India and abroad to participate in this event. The organisation shortlisted this large number to 35 designers who will be showcasing their Winter/Festive collections to the public this September.
India Runway Week showcases tomorrow’s designers today
India Runway Week is a platform for upcoming designers, talented youngsters who are trying to breakthrough in the Indian fashion scene. India knows a great number of designers and it is extremely difficult for young talent to reach a large audience and to get noticed. IFFD provides a platform for these Gen-Next designers to showcase their work and supports these designers on their fashion journey. I am a big fan of IFFD’s fashion events and supporter of its directors Kiran and Avinash who are doing a great job supporting young fashion talent in India. I love the idea that in September we might be admiring India’s next top designers on the India Runway Week ramp!
India Runway Week: Gen-Next
There are a total of 10 talented Gen-Next designers who will be participating in the India Runway Week Gen-Next category, they will be showcasing alongside senior designers and in front of the India Runway Week audience, which includes important names from the Indian fashion scene.
