#MadeInIndia big at New York Fashion Week
The global fashion calendar has finally arrived and so has the New York Fashion Week (Sept 8-15) One of the most talked (read tweeted) about fashion extravaganzas, globally, the New York fashion Week showcases some of the hottest talent in design, besides offering ample opportunities for celeb, fashion and beauty trend spotting.
However, this year will see Indian designers and a bevy of Indian beauties taking the New York Fashion Week by storm, both on and off the runway. And most of them will be there today itself.
In 2014, Reshma Qureshi’s face was brutally disfigured after her brother-in-law and his friends assaulted her and threw acid on her face. After going through a tough phase in her life, it’s her association with the NGO Make Love Not Scars, that restored her confidence and she became the face of the #EndAcidSale.
And this year, the gorgeous girl’s been invited to walk the runway on September 8 by FTL Moda–known for its diverse catwalk–at the New York Fashion Week.
Fashion designer Archana Kochhar has made a name for herself with her ahimsa silk range of garments and this is the second time she’ll be showcasing at New York Fashion Week.
Having sported Archana Kochhar’s creations for sometime now, the Ek Paheli Leela actress will be seen opening the fashion designer’s show at the New York Fashion Week.
Fashion designer Vaishali Shadangule’s label, Vaishali S will make its New York Fashion Week debut by showcasing handwoven creations from the brand’s new Spring Summer 2017 collection titled, And Quiet Flows the Thread.
Though we won’t get to see the Flying Jatt actress on the runway, Jacqueline Fernandez will be seen off the runway, giving us some major #fashiongoals as the actress will be in attendance at the event in her capacity as a brand ambassador for TRESseme India.
The Pune-based Chasa Institute of Design and Technology will present 15 designs on the runway in a show choreographed by Lubna Adams, with the presentation focusing on women’s education and the importance of handloom in India and the models will carry placards highlighting the same.
Maharashtra Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis’ banker wife will be the showstopper for Chasa IDT’s presentation and will promote the cause of women’s education and handloom on one of the hottest international runways.
Models to watch out
Though there’s no confirmation, it’s very much possible that the biggest labels would have booked India’s hottest runway exports, models Pooja Mor and Bhoomika Arora to sashay down their ramps, so keep your eyes wide open.
P.S: Though she’s busy filming the latest season of Quantico, you just might spot Priyanka Chopra in the front row!
