The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) has announced that the design label Akaaro by Gaurav Jai Gupta will present the opening show at the upcoming Lotus Make-up India Fashion Week in association with EbixCash Autumn Winter 2020, which is scheduled to take place from March 11-15, 2020, at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Lodhi Road, New Delhi.
Designer Gaurav Jai Gupta, known for his creative weaves and self-developed fabrics, will pay tribute to French master, Yves Klein, with a line inspired by iconic hue Klein Blue, on March 11.
But that’s not all. To take this season’s theme #FashionWearsArt forward, each day at LMIFW AW’20 will have an art-inspired show. FDCI is also working with 12 Italian artists along-with Pearl Academy, where designer students will translate their artworks into a textile in collaboration with artisans, to be presented at an eclectic installation at the venue. We will witness its reverberations through art installations based on textiles by international and Indian designers.
“This year, the theme is fashion and its inextricable soulmate art, and their endearing relationship that has only ripened over the years, with Elsa Schiaparelli being one of the front runners with Salvador Dali and the memorable lobster dress. We hope to create many such pieces that will make it to the coveted list,” said FDCI President Sunil Sethi.
