Today we witnessed a beginning of new era in Asian fashion with stunning collections by leading designers from India and International fraternity. And that’s the concept behind Asian Designer Week – to strengthen the bond that exists between Asian countries with respect to the cultural values, traditions and heritage despite the diversities, with fashion and pure talent.
Asian Designer Week has been solely conceived for promoting the interests of Asian fashion designers and artists at global level. Most importantly, we also want to give an equal opportunity to existing and fresh talents across the continent, therefore we kept shows for NewGen and NextGen (Fashion Students) designers as well.
