And the industry is showing it’s support in full force. Lakme Fashion Week has been pioneering the fashion cause with their Gen Next and the recently introduced Emerging Designers showcases of many a young designer’s debut collection. Then there is the support from the very voice of fresh fashion, magazines like Grazia who have taken upon themselves to draw out the very best of young Indian fashion with their annual Grazia Young Fashion Awards. In addition to the critical acclaim, the funding and the editorial visibility, the winners now also get to showcase their winning collections at the large scale platform of Lakme Fashion Week.
Introducing its debut #GYFA showcase on Day 2 of the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive’15, Grazia presented 10 winning AW collections from this year’s edition of Grazia Young Fashion Awards 2015. A well rounded showcase of women’s wear, men’s wear, jewelry, footwear and eyewear from the 10 new labels, it was a show that impressed upon us with its vibrancy, dynamism and the sheer force of the creative talent we got to witness.
In case you don’t already know and are wondering (for that sartorial know-it-all prowess), the 10 winning labels/designers are Ikai by Ragini Ahuja, Three by Pallavi Dhyani, Sayon by Sayon Chatterjee, Antar-Agni by Ujjawal Dubey, Jodi by Karuna Laungani and Gauri Verma, QuirkBox by Rixi Bhatia and Jayesh Sachdev, Miuniku by Tina and Nikita Sutradhar, Sole Sisters by Chondamma Cariappa and the eponymous labels of Sahil Kocchhar and Malvika Vaswani.
