YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-03-15 16:30:00 – New Delhi

The Amazon India Fashion Week, organized by the Fashion Design Council of India started today in New Delhi with nearly 71 designers who will be showcasing their creations across six shows.

A special show dedicated to Indonesian textiles and techniques will take place on the basis of FDCI's partnership with Jakarta Fashion Week to enable a cross-cultural exchange of designer talent between the two platforms.

Veteran designer Madhu Jain will be celebrating 30 years in the industry as a craft revivalist and textile conservationist, along with Krishna Mehta known for bringing Maheshwari fabrics to the limelight.

Designers Abraham and Thakore will highlight the irregularity of Indian textures, using pure Indian cottons that are either hand woven or hand printed.

Designer Shaina NC will exhibit around a dozen tussar silk saris, which would be a fusion of her own designs as well as ones inspired by the weavers of Jharkhand. Shaina NC is known for her dedicated efforts to promote Indian handlooms. She will be presenting her collection for the first time at AIFW.

Celebrating a decade in India, the fashion brand Vogue will showcase 55 modern day narratives of Indian traditional drapes.

Sally Holkar, Founder of WomenWeave and The Handloom School said that the handloom weavers need and deserve a platform where their skills and rich heritage can be showcased and where weavers can learn about their markets.

This show is a great opportunity for The Handloom School graduates and its future students to synergize the potential of traditional and modern textile design.

A common thread of Indian handloom and textiles is binding all designers together at the show.
