Anamika Khanna and Rohit Bal to open ICW 2017 at two experiential offsite venues
The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) announced Anamika Khanna and Rohit Bal as the opening designers for the India Couture Week 2017 with two offsite shows on 24th July 2017 at two equally mesmerizing venues.
Sunil Sethi, President, FDCI said, “Anamika Khanna and Rohit Bal have been the epicentre of the fashion world. They will open the India Couture Week with their trademark grandeur setting enviable trends for a discerning audience."
Anamika Khanna will be showcasing her couture collection titled 'Luxury 2017’ as installation pieces at The Kila, Mehrauli in New Delhi. The Kila is a part of a cluster of a few heritage buildings located around the Qutub Minar in Mehrauli, which are unique in their use and character. The view of the Qutab Minar – a UNESCO declared World Heritage Monument is unmatchable. One can get a dose of retail therapy in the premises at Evoluzione or choose to kick back at the country's premier live performance club- Blue Frog.
Khanna, the self-taught designer, says "Respecting and understanding the small nuances of every occasion, at Anamika Khanna we present the "Luxury 2017" collection, the store of a beautiful wedding."
Rohit Bal, with his classic and immaculate embroideries will kick start the ICW extravaganza with a show at the restored Bikaner House at 9:30 pm in the capital.
His collection ‘Khush Posh’ is an effort to revive heritage pieces from the costume collections of royal Mughals which have been immortalised in museums. The collection highlights an amalgamation of traditional craft with modern sensibilities preserving its timeless beauty. And nestled in the heart of central Delhi, Bikaner House will serve as the ideal venue to emulsify the fuildity of fashion with experience. A princely house now belonging to the Rajasthan government, Bikaner House i located within walking distance of India Gate.
Rohit Bal says, “The collection is an ode to lost craft and tradition. A journey from the past to the present with a gentle nudge of contemporary influences.”
