FDCI, 6Degree to give a platform to young designers
The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) has collaborated with fashion platform 6Degree for the ‘Gen-Z’ initiative through which they aim to give a boost to young designers in the country.
Gen-Z has been created specifically to give a platform to designers who have been in the industry for less than 3 years.
Designers selected under the program will be discipled by experts in the fashion industry and five designers will also get an opportunity to showcase their collections at the India Fashion Week.
Commenting on the initiative, FDCI President Sunil Sethi said in a statement, "As a representative of fashion designers in India, we feel responsible to usher the business of fashion in India, forward. And that requires young and creative designers to come and share the responsibility by bringing new ideas to the table.
"Hence, Gen-Z plays an important role in giving budding designers a boost which in turn will help the fashion industry. We hope this turns out as a career positive step for all the budding designers involved,” he added.
Nikhil Hegde, Co-Founder, and CEO, 6Degree, added, "There is so much talent in the Indian Fashion Industry, but the challenges faced by retailers make it difficult for the new designers to demonstrate their skills and establish a strong brand. Gen-Z is a positive step towards introducing this talent to the masses and give them the due recognition."
