The journey started 10 yrs ago in 2000 when Lakme and IMG came together to provide platform to some of the known designers in Indian fashion world to showcase their platform.The year 2000 was a milestone for Indian fashion, with the first Lakmé India Fashion Week being held at the Taj Palace, New Delhi. With this event, Lakme and IMG helped the country take its first step towards being recognized as a source of creativity and inspiration in the global fashion community.
After 10 yrs Indian fashion Industry has reached a state where it is now considered as the strong competent aside leading fashion capitals of the World.
This time LFW was presented with a vision to “Redefine the future of fashion and Integrate India into the global fashion world”.LFW is organized twice annually.
All these years LFW served as the premier platform to launch new designers and showcase India’s best, talented established designers and a place where domestic and international buyers alike interact with designers to support the business of fashion.
This decade of progress and evolution marks an important milestone in the Indian Fashion industry.As such, Lakme and IMG took this opportunity to reflect on the evolving fashion industry by bringing together some of India’s best known fashion talents in one show.
This show was a unique concept that encapsulated and illustrated the history and provided a glimpse into the future of Indian fashion through the artistic representations of key fashion influencers over the past 10 years.
This hallmark event showcased many of the past Lakme Grand Finale designers who have come together to produce one show that travels from “Then” to “Now” and ultimately to “Forever”.
With Lakme Fashion week spring summer 2010 which took place at Hyatt,Mumbai from 18-22nd sep. marking ten glorious years of Indian Fashion Industry this event took us through a voyage starting from yr 2000 showcasing “Then” ,How fashion Industry looked like a decade ago through a audio visual format and the transitions which took place over past 10 yrs to “Now” which is the designer’s representation of what that theme means today. and ultimately to “Forever”,i.e. how it is perceived in future with his or her “Forever” girl.
