Ritu Beri to host The Luxury Symposium in Delhi
today Nov 23, 2018
Designer Ritu Beri will host The Luxury Symposium at the Hyatt Regency in New Delhi on November 30. The event aims to help strengthen India’s voice in the global fashion industry.
Beri, who was recently awarded the title of Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the French Government, will host a symposium on Indian luxury brands at the end of the month.
"India's growing tribe of luxury consumers is more travelled, more discerning, and more demanding than ever before,” Beri told IANS. “I desire to open the Indian doors to luxury brands from various countries and to strengthen the voice of India abroad -- the idea is to create an increased pool of knowledge and competence.”
The Luxury Symposium is organised by The Luxury League which was also founded by Beri. The League and the Symposium both aim to allow for development that is less influenced by the West and stays true to the “Indian persona,” as Beri puts it. "One of our major shortcomings is that we tend to be heavily influenced by the West,” said Beri about the Indian luxury fashion market. She hopes to work to counter this problem.
The one day event will also feature creative thinkers, international business leaders, entrepreneurs, investors and government officials among other speakers. To accompany the event, there will be a display entitled “The Showcase” to promote the various forms of Indian craft.
