The country’s most celebrated event, the India Couture Week 2016, will be held at the Taj Palace Hotel from July 20th-24th, in the capital. The India Couture Week has been successfully hosted by the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), since 2008 and like its predecessors this year too will be a fabulous amalgamation of style with substance.
The ICW 2016 promises a dazzling showcase of intricate craftsmanship, interesting trends, and the best of Indian crafts by leading couturiers from fashion epicenters like, Mumbai, Kolkata and New Delhi.
The FDCI announced couturier Manish Malhotra, as the opening designer for the India Couture Week 2016. Manish will showcase his bedazzling creations on July 20th at 9:30 pm at the Taj Palace Hotel, New Delhi making it a star-spangled night to remember.
With more than 25 years of extensive experience in the industry, Manish not only created iconic looks for films, but has also contributed to the revival of several Indian crafts from Chikankari to the Benarasi weave.
Expressing his excitement to kickoff the India Couture Week 2016, Manish Malhotra said, “This July my label completes 11 years. My journey in Delhi started six years ago with India Couture Week. This helped me slowly and steadily getting the people in Delhi and north more aware about my work, which began to do very well with multi-designer stores. This encouraged me to become India’s first designer ever to open a 9000sq ft sprawling huge store, which completes three successful years this 1st November. India Couture Week is most special to me as it has been most supportive to my journey in Delhi.”
Sunil Sethi, President, FDCI, said, “We have always offered the best of India through our eponymous events and the ICW is the most coveted extravaganza in the stable as it showcases couture ensembles, which are emblematic of our rich tradition and historical past. As we get set to indulge in this unadulterated visual treat, we hope to recreate splendour through the art of luxury.”
