Designer Rina Dhaka said that she will be making a special announcement to support the handloom campaign in Varanasi on National Handloom Day, which falls on August 7, but doesn’t have the full details yet. Dhaka says apex fashion body, the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), is supporting the campaign. She added that she is unaware about the other details related to the event.
“I am off to Varanasi tomorrow (August 7) for some announcement. I have no clue of what the agenda is… All I know is that FDCI (Fashion Design Council of India) is supporting this initiative and they have asked me to be a part of this journey to Varanasi to make an announcement supporting this cause,” Dhaka told IANS in a telephonic conversation.
Dhaka, who has styled big names like Naomi Campbell, Martha Marzotto and Uma Thurman, added that she will have a clear picture only when she will reach Varanasi. The designer said: “I will get a clear picture tomorrow (August 7). I don’t have any information about it … Mr. (FDCI president Sunil) Sethi had called me and asked me to be on the plane tomorrow.”
