The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) has announced the dates of its much awaited India Couture Week (ICW). The event will be held from July 20th to 24th, 2016 at The Taj Palace Hotel, New Delhi. The names of the participating designers and the title sponsor of the event have not been revealed as yet.
Amazon, which has been the title sponsor for the FDCI’s India Fashion Weeks held biannually, was also the sponsor for the event last year.
Sunil Sethi, President, FDCI, said, “We have always offered the best of India through our eponymous events and the ICW is the most coveted extravaganza in the stable as it showcases couture ensembles, which are emblematic of our rich tradition and historical past. As we get set to indulge in this unadulterated visual treat, we hope to recreate splendour through the art of luxury.”
A non-profit organization, the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), is the apex body of fashion design in India, represented by over 350 members. It was founded on the premise of promoting, nurturing and representing the best of fashion and design talent in the country, with the prime objective to propagate the business of fashion and to promote the ‘Make in India’ label as handlooms take center stage, in a country, who’s heritage is soaked in the flavours of indigenous crafts.
