India Fashion Week to commence on October 10
The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) will host the 32nd edition of the India Fashion Week (IFW), spring-summer 2019, from October 10-13, at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in the national capital Delhi.
The four-day event will see young designers and seasoned veterans showcase their collections at the event. FDCI is looking to make IFW a mix of trade and fashion event this year.
FDCI has stated that it will introduce a unique concept called the ‘Designer Stockroom’, which is a B2C theme, aimed at giving designers an opportunity to sell their stock, both new and old.
Commenting on the concept, FDCI President, Sunil Sethi in a statement said, “With fashion and its rigorous cycles, FDCI’s effort is to maximize the prowess of IFW and make it a trade event, yet keeping the sanctity of the showcase,” said FDCI President, Sunil Sethi.
“The event will keep with the tradition of buyer sale for first four days and has added a new dimension for public sale on the penultimate two days, October 14-15 at the same venue, in continuation to IFW SS’19," the statement added.
IFW is a bi-annual event held in March and October. The autumn/winter edition was held at the same venue this year with designer Samant Chauhan opening the event.
The list of participating designers for this edition is yet to be announced by the organisers.
