LMIFW to celebrate inclusivity with ‘Rainbow’ show grand finale
today Oct 5, 2018
The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) will close the 32nd edition of the Lotus Make-Up India Fashion Week with a unique ‘Rainbow’ show grand finale wherein 40 designers will showcase their creations.
The ‘Rainbow’ show will be a tribute to mark the historic article 377 judgement by the Supreme Court of India. The Supreme Court of India on September 6, 2018, decriminalised the Section 377 of the IPC and allowed gay sex among consenting adults in private.
Each designer will dress a model in an ensemble based on the Rainbow theme, an emblem for the LGBTQ community, which was originally created by San Francisco-based artist Gilbert Baker, in 1978 using six stripes: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet to represent diversity and peace.
Commenting on the grand finale, Sunil Sethi, FDCI President in a statement said, “We wanted to give designers the space to experiment with the pre-designed hue wheel and show solidarity with this cause which many hold dear as it has liberated millions of people living shackled by fear of societal pressure and often harsh judgement. This was a victory of choice, dignity, and privacy, a fundamental right and we are delighted that our title sponsor Lotus Make-Up supports this as a Grand Finale show.”
Nitin Passi, Director of Lotus Herbals, added, “As the presenting partner of Lotus Make-Up India Fashion Week we are extremely honoured to present The Grand Finale, which is a unique show celebrating the freedom that has finally been bestowed upon all members of our society.”
