Vibrant India returned for its third consecutive season at New York Fashion Week on February 9 and 10 as a partnership between the Inter National Institute of Fashion Design and London School of Trends to showcase the work of emerging Indian student designers.
The two events, which took place at 172 Norfolk St., Manhattan, featured an array of designs by INIFD students from its campuses across India. Both traditional and western wear was represented on the runway and the shows had four themes: Art & Craft, Bad Girls, Evening Wear & Tailoring.
The runway shows’ organisers described the event in a press release and said it was “in tandem with the five 'F' formula given by Honorable Prime Minister Sh. Narendra Modi,” and his promotions of Indian fashion exports.
The Deputy Consul General of India at New York Shatrughan Sinha attended the show along with a number of other dignitaries. “The future of Indian fashion is in the right hands,” Sinha tweeted after the show.
The runway shows saw “models sashaying on the ramp displaying rich Indian cultural heritage blended with western aesthetics,” according to the press release. “Capturing the spirit of India with students coming from diverse backgrounds, they focused on fall winter trends while embracing a certain and exciting season.”
The INIFD has shown its students’ work at Mumbai’s Lakme Fashion Week for the past 22 editions and the Vibrant India initiative runs at both NYFW and London Fashion Week makling the first fashion institute in the world to showcase their students’ collections at two major fashion weeks. The LFW edition will take place on February 16.
