A week-long fashion event in the city of Delhi recently showcased a number of designer collections.
The Pearl Delhi Couture week featured designers such as JJ Valaya and Manish Malhotra and focused on the art of high-fashion that is developing in India, reports PFI. Ahead of the event, Sunil Sethi, president of the Fashion Design Council of India, explained that the shows would be impressive and bring India's top couture names together at one event.
He added: "Designers get more time to prepare for couture (high-fashion clothing) shows. So creativity is at its highest level." So far only France and the US have hosted a couture week. Therefore, the showcase was a major development for India - with a bill featuring a total of 13 designers- especially as there are only 22 worldwide listed couturiers.
The event took place at the five-star Grand Hotel in the Vasant Kunj area of the city and highlights the range of great attractions on offer to those benefiting from cheap flights to India.
