India's top designers and a troop of sashaying models are busy preparing for Lakme Fashion Week which starts today in Mumbai and go on till October 24 with the grand finale showing by Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
"Lakme Fashion Week provides a good platform to all the young and upcoming talent. I think it is a very long struggle for any designer to make a mark in India. I think Lakme Fashion House is doing its job well," said Swati
Bhimte, a fashion designer.
The designers are vying to catch the attention of up to 80 international buyers during the fashion week.
"Lakme Fashion Week has been the most important part of my career because whatever I am, it is because of Lakme Fashion Week. After that there was `Generation Next' where they gave me my next debut which was a very good
platform for a young designer like me," said Swapnil Shinde, another fashion designer.
Lakme Fashion Week will involve events like media seminars, business-to-business meetings and a buyers' forum, apart from the regular fashion shows.
