Textile Industry In India: #RoadToChanderi Opens AIFW SS17

Amazon India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017 has officially kicked off and The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) decided to celebrate the charm of the chanderi fabric by opening the Fashion Week with a show dedicated to it. The textile industry in India is so huge that there will always be some craft, cluster, fabric to recognise at all times. However this year 16 leading Indian fashion designers revived the traditional chanderi silk fabric into their present collections. They created four ensembles each and hope to encourage more designers to incorporate chanderi into their creations, to boost the crafts sector and value the textile industry in India. These 16 designers and FDCI have brought the essence of the sleepy town of Chanderi to its full bloom. The collections included some beautiful gowns, maxis, palazzos, drapes and many more here are some of the designs right off the runway!

The designers of the project are:

Akaaro by Gaurav Jai Gupta, Anita Dongre Grassroot, Atsu by Atsu Sekhose, Bodice, Divyam Mehta, Ikai By Ragini Ahuja, Joy Mitra, Ka.Sha by Karishma Shahani Khan, Paromita Banerjee, Payal Pratap, Prama by Pratima Pandey, péro by Aneeth Arora, Samant Chauhan, Raw Mango, Surendri by Yogesh Chaudhary and Vaishali S.

“The recent months have witnessed delightful movements in the handloom sector. Upliftment of crafts has been our motto at the FDCI. Through this project, we will increase the usage of chanderi making it the fabric of the moment. In the past, FDCI has made earnest attempts to revive khadi as well as the Banarasi weave. This year, we are looking to establish chanderi belt as the central craft tourism destination in India.”

FDCI President Sunil Sethi
