The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) celebrated the charm of the chanderi fabric at the opening show of the Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) Spring Summer 2017 on October 12. The collections were a melange of beautiful creations by Indian designers which glorified Indian handloom. FDCI president Sunil Sethi said it is a step towards preserving the heritage. Here's a look at the collections.
"The languishing handloom sector has been resuscitated by the #iwearhandloom campaign started by Textile Minister Smriti Irani. In continuation with this, FDCI and its designers, are making a difference in preserving the heritage of the country through our conceptual shows. This edition is our earnest attempt to merge the past, present and future through meaningful initiatives," Sethi said.
