FDCI grants funds to all member designers, opens up CSF initiative to non-member designers
The Fashion Design Council of India has accepted all applications from its fashion designer members for its Covid-19 Support Fund and has now opened round two of the funding initiative to non-member designers.
“Every FDCI member, who has applied for CSF has been accepted and the designers have been informed,” the FDCI’s head Sunil Sethi and its Board of Governors announced on Facebook. “Their payments have been processed for their respective wages and rents.”
“We are now opening the second round to non-FDCI designers who have applied to us,” wrote the FDCI. “We are in the process of evaluating their applications.” The FDCI also announced that it would acknowledge the contributors to the fund at a later date as funds are still coming in.
The FDCI has been running ‘FDCInsights’ as a multi-media initiative to share stories, information, and tips from designers, stylists, and other fashion industry names during lockdown. The ‘digital discourse’ series has garnered 10 lakh views, the FDCI said.
The organisation’s next initiative is ‘FDCI Wall of Frame’ as an Instagram-based contest for fashion photographers. The contest, which closes on June 1, aims to recognise up-and-coming fashion photography talent in India and give new names a platform.
