The Fashion Design Council of India has accepted all applications from fashion designer members for its COVID-19 Support Fund and has now opened round two of the funding initiative to non-member designers. The FDCI also announced that it would acknowledge the contributors to the fund at a later date as funds are still coming in.
The FDCI has been running ‘FDCInsights’ as a multi-media initiative to share stories, information, and tips from designers, stylists, and other fashion industry names during lockdown. The ‘digital discourse’ series has garnered 10 lakh views, the FDCI said.
The organisation’s next initiative is ‘FDCI Wall of Frame’ as an Instagram-based contest for fashion photographers. The contest, which closes on June 1, aims to recognise up-and-coming fashion photography talent in India and give new names a platform.
