Nine coveted designers including Aneeth Arora, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Rohit Kamra, Rina Singh, Samant Chauhan, Sanjay Garg, Swati Kalsi, Swati Ubroi and Ashish, Vikrant and Viral of Virtues presented their riveting ensembles representing the state they have been associated with. The energising fabrics, embroideries and techniques representative of the chosen states, interpreted in the unique idiom of each designer.

The Ambassador hosted an exclusive sit down dinner by Michelin starred celebrity Chef Viviana Varese, to mark the occasion.

President, FDCI Mr Sunil Sethi, said, “Taking forward the vision of Make in India, we have seamlessly enlivened the innate intensity of Indian craft and textiles. The rich treasure trove of Rajasthan, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh has been unveiled in the most magnificent manner through ubiquitous ensembles by these style gurus. We would like to thank the Italian Ambassador His Excellency Mr Lorenzo Angeloni and Mr Aman Nath, Founder Trustee, TNM Foundation for providing us this platform.”  

The rendering of Madhya Pradesh was presented by Sanjay Garg, Samant Chauhan and Swati Kalsi.
