Commenting on the initiative, Richa Singh, managing director for India at the Diamond Producers Association, in a statement said, "Diamonds have a very deep connection to the history, culture, and fashion of India. We are excited to collaborate with LFW to offer a platform that will identify and nurture diamond jewellery design talent and be beyond a basic showcase. I'm looking forward to seeing the exciting looks that emerge on the runway, with Diamonds enhancing every collection.”
