One of the biggest young designers of India, Padma Raj Kesari presented the scintillating “ReDenim Project” that saw the models dazzle the ramp with a collection emphasizing the need for sustainability in the current scenario. A model citizen while exploring his creativity, Padma Raj talks about two very relevant social issues of the same time.

Other designers like Diana Linda, Jeremy Fitzgerald, Corinne Smith & Amar Mithapalli, Seema Kalavadia and artisans of Maheswari craft presented their collections for the first time in Indore. The audience were also treated to the collections of student designers of from leading fashion institutes across India such as Avantika University, Ujjain and Amity University, Noida. Manisha Rituparna took us to a culture trip of Odisha by bringing alive the Rasarkeli craft on stage.

Mr Wendell Rodricks, a Padma Shree Awardee and one of the most iconic and respected fashion designers in the history of Indian Fashion not only presented the finale collection but also encouraged young LGBTQ models to buckle up and give it their all to achieve their dreams as the chief guest of the event. The Guest of Honour, Ms Diandra Soares talked about the importance of love and how love & acceptance can overpower all difference and thanked established corporates like Repechage, Indigo and Steve Madden for not shying away from such a vital issue.
