Ace designer Rajesh Pratap Singh will open the upcoming Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW), which is celebrating its silver jubilee in the latest edition.
The five-day extravaganza, commencing from March 25 at Pragati Maidan, will feature new as well as established designers from the Indian fashion industry.
Rajesh is excited to open the autumn-winter edition.
"We are looking forward to opening the India Fashion Week this year. Amazon's coming on board would give a much-needed shot in the arm to the industry; this association is bound to further expose designers and craftsmen to the strengths and realities of doing business in the digital world.
"I am sure that my colleagues in the fraternity would whole-hardheartedly support this partnership, keeping in mind, the boom in the online space," Rajesh said in a statement.
Announcing the participation of the veteran designer, Sunil Sethi, President, Fashion Design Council of India said, "The FDCI is honoured to announce Rajesh Pratap Singh as the opening designer for the AIFW-AW'15.
His creative genius resonates deeply with the audience and his understated design aesthetic has always been applauded. Singh's collection will elevate the India Fashion Week and lend a credible voice to the design spectrum."
