Weaves in action DOWNLOAD PDF

The Sustainable Fashion Day at the Lakmé Fashion Week this time saw six designers enthralling the audience with their dazzling innovations. Meher Castelino presents a first-hand account of the weaves that seek to provide an impetus to the local economies in the Northeast.

IMG Reliance is collaborating with the United Nations to create an amazing informative dialogue/show on the Northeast. Northeast designers will be supported by the British Council’s global Crafting Futures programme, also in association with IMG Reliance and Fashion Revolution. The collaboration with the UN aims to boost the local economy of the Northeast.

Every season, the IMG Reliance Sustainable Fashion Day at Lakmé Fashion Week has been the most awaited, with the presentation of the glamorous textiles and crafts of India. At LFW Summer/Resort 2018, Northeast designers presented by IMG Reliance at the Northeast Mojo event enthralled the audience at the opening show of Sustainable Fashion Day. Six designers, a craft society and an installation unveiled the beauty and grandeur of fashion from Manipur, Meghalaya, Sikkim, Assam, Nagaland and Tripura as each state showcased its stunning traditional fabrics and crafts.

Jaspreet Chandok, vice-president and fashion head, IMG Reliance, said, “We are glad that we have developed a platform to engage key stakeholders and work towards building the economy of the Northeast. To create a call to action for structuring collaboration models between the Northeast and industry has greatly excited all of us. We are happy to initiate these meaningful dialogues and interventions, and to highlight the real and solid actions taken by industry leaders, as well as build conviction on the need to invest in the long-term sustainable development of the Northeast.”
