today Oct 1, 2018
Australian designers will be showcasing at the upcoming Lotus Make-Up India Fashion Week as part of the Australia Fest on October 10 in New Delhi.
Australian designers have collaborated with Indian artisans from across the country to develop their collections.
The show will feature the collections of five Australian designers - Romance was Born, We are Kindred, Brother’s Earth, Cassandra Harper, and Roopa – created using Indian handloom textiles.
Commenting on the collaboration, Australia’s High Commissioner to India, Harinder Sidhu, in a statement said, “We are proud to present this project as an outcome of Australia’s MoU with India on cooperation in the textiles, clothing and fashion sectors. I am looking forward to viewing the collection, which demonstrates the richness and versatility of Indian textiles interpreted in a contemporary Australian design context.”
FDCI President Sunil Sethi, added, "We are delighted that we have this partnership with Australia again this year, and like last time I hope it will bring forth engaging ideas. It will be interesting to see how these designers give us a new algorithm of style using Indian handlooms and use their innate prowess to display a fresh outlook.”
India Fashion Week will take place from October 10 to 13 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi. This is the 32nd edition of the India Fashion Week (IFW).
