Lakme Fashion Week is a brilliant opportunity for Indian fashion designers to show off their latest collections. The week brings with it India’s most acclaimed and prodigious designers as well as new up and coming talent. The Gen Next programme allows new, talented designers to showcase their collections on a national stage. Some of these designers have gone on to do exceptionally well in the fashion industry, risen to great heights through The Gen Next programme. Some of these are Swapnil Shinde, Masaba Gupta, Nitin Bal Chauhan, Archana Rao, Aneeth Arora and Rahul Mishra.
This year there will be six new designers to showcase at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 and these select few will be mentored by Anita Dongre to further enhance their talents.
