Lakmé Fashion Week announces return of its designer programmes including GenNext
Lakmé Fashion Week has launched the next editions of its mentoring programmes and prizes for fashion designers including its GenNext programme for up-and-coming Indian designers.
“A callout to all fashion designers! It is time for us all to return to form,” Lakmé Fashion Week announced on its Facebook page in June 16. “GenNext Designer, Emerging Designer, Established Designer and Accessory Designer programmes will once again be open to admissions.”
The GenNext programme, which is designed to find new design talent, mentor creators to scale up their operations, and crown the season’s ’GenNext’ designer, opened applications with a deadline of July 10 for the first round of the competition, according to Lakmé Fashion Week’s website. Designers selected in the first phase of the competition will move forward into phase two.
The GenNext programme has run for the past 29 seasons and debuted 270 designers. Alumni of the programme includes Péro’s Aneeth Arora, House of Masaba’s Masaba Gupta, Bodice’s Ruchika Sachdeva, and Ikai’s Ragini Ahuja among others.
Lakmé Fashion Week has also been sharing designers’ work processes during extended lockdown with its ‘Through The Lens’ project on Facebook. Designers Amit Aggarwal and Manish Malhotra shared their work-from-home space and what they have been up to during lockdown with more designer insights to come.
