Lakme Fashion Week (March 9 to March 12, 2023, Mumbai) will present GenNext designers. The event will be held in partnership with Fashion Design Council of India.
Four designers — HiralJajal, Kunaal Kyhaan,Anugrah Chandra and Rudraksh Dwivedi — have emerged as the winners of GenNext, a talent discovery program. These designers will present their collections and translate their creative storytelling through fashion and beauty with Lakme’s trend-setting products in synchronicity with their themes.
The GenNext program which began in 2006 identifies, mentors, and recognises young designers season on season, giving them the opportunity to showcase their work on a global platform like Lakme Fashion Week. For more than a decade, the GenNext program has been responsible for introducing more than 250 designers, several of whom have gone on to make a mark in the Indian and international fashion industry.
Lakme Fashion Week provides new talent a platform to showcase its work as well as interact with different stakeholders within the industry. Lakme Fashion Week which was held from October 12 to 16, 2022, Mumbai, included a number of design contests and sustainable fashion initiatives as well as runway shows.
The second edition of Lakme Fashion Week will be held in New Delhi from October 11 to 15, 2023.
