After a successful first fully on-ground edition in New Delhi, the two powerhouses of Indian fashion and beauty – the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) and Lakmé Fashion Week – will be joining forces once again for the upcoming season of FDCI X Lakmé Fashion Week.
Jaspreet Chandok, Head RISE Fashion and Lifestyle, said “We’ve received tremendous appreciation and support from the industry for bringing back the fully physical edition of FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week in March 2022 in New Delhi. Having said that, we are already focused on putting together an even stronger line-up for the next edition of the event, which will be held in Mumbai in October 2022.”
He added “Much like the previous season, the upcoming edition will bring together the best of the physical and digital worlds, giving various stakeholders across the fashion community a world-class platform to showcase their creativity. We look forward to sharing more details about our plans for the upcoming edition, soon.”
After two years of restrictive measures due to the pandemic, the on-ground edition of the FDCI X Lakmé Fashion Week held in Delhi in March 2022 comprised one of the strongest curations of designers ever, from across India.
Furthermore, the platform continued to champion sustainability through path-breaking initiatives, while further spreading messages of inclusivity and diversity.
Scheduled to take place in Mumbai from 12 to 16 October 2022, the new edition
of the FDCI X Lakmé Fashion Week will build on this momentum with a stellar line-up of talents from across the country.
Commenting on the same, Sunil Sethi, Chairman, FDCI, said “The return to a physical format of the FDCI X Lakmé Fashion Week in Delhi was a welcome change after the hybrid editions of the past two years. It gave the designers the chance to showcase their creativity, up close and personal with the audience. With the same energy from the success of the previous season, we are happy to announce that the event will be back for its next physical showcase in the month of October.”
Sunil added “Keeping the spirit of the collaboration between FDCI and Lakmé Fashion Week, we are very excited to bring the event to Mumbai. This edition, like the previous ones, will continue to transcend geographical boundaries and welcome a mix of designers from across the country.”
Sumati Mattu, Head of Innovations at Lakmé, added “The March 2022 fully physical edition of FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week was a showcase of Lakmé, RISE and FDCI’s grit and determination to help the beauty and fashion community navigate through the new normal, put their best foot forward. We are extremely pleased to announce the return of the next edition of the event in Mumbai, after a glorious showcase in New Delhi. The FDCI X Lakmé Fashion Week has always fostered a community that drives forward innovation as well as growth and the upcoming season is sure to set new benchmarks.”
