Bringing the beauty and glory of India’s Fabric of Freedom to centre stage, Khadi India / Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) showcased a Khadi Presentation curated by FDCI. The showcase featured khadi ensembles by several leading Indian designers and also went on to make history as it featured the first ever khadi presentation in the country by an international designer.
The show, divided into two segments, first featured ensembles by French designer Mossi Traoré and the second segment included collections by India’s top designers viz. Abhishek Gupta Benares, Anavila, Anju Modi, Charu Parashar and Rina Dhaka.
Shri Vinai Kumar Saxena, Chairman KVIC added, “Khadi has always been an instrument of social change and has transformed into a tool of resilience, resurgence, and self-reliance in modern times. From being a humble attire across India, Khadi has evolved into a symbol of sustainable fashion and ultimate luxury. Joining hands with FDCI for this exclusive presentation helped cut across geographies and reach global audiences and entice younger generations towards Khadi with clothing that is comfortable, easy to wear and trendy.”
Sunil Sethi, Chairman FDCI commented, “It is an honor to collaborate with KVIC and curate a Khadi presentation, as we celebrate sustainable fashion at FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week. With this showcase, we aimed to bring to the fore Khadi’s true potential and catapult it in the global arena. We are proud to have had renowned Indian designers as well as an international designer showcase their unique interpretation that is poised to take the sustainable lifestyle conversation to a larger audience.”
