 FDCI announces Italy as ‘Partner Country’ and collaborates with Italian Trade Commission - Embassy of Italy for AIFW SS’17


New Delhi, September 26, 2016: Understanding the need for innovation in design, the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) has collaborated with the Italian Trade Commission in New Delhi to have Italy as ‘Partner Country’ for the upcoming season of the Amazon India Fashion Week in association with Maybelline New York Spring-Summer’17, to be held from October 12-16, 2016 at the NSIC Grounds, Okhla.


In a first-of-its-kind partnership, the FDCI will provide the ASSOCALZATURIFICI (Italian Footwear Manufacturers' Association) and AIMPES (Italian Leather goods Manufacturers’ Association) a platform to showcase the finest collection of leather goods from 41 leading Italian brands.



This will be followed by a showcase by talented designers like Alberto Zambelli, Bav Tailor, Davide Grillo and Leitmotiv, selected by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (National Chamber of Italian Fashion) on October 12th.



Through the universal language of fashion, whose evolution has braced construction and deconstruction of various identities, diverse narratives will take on the personas of the varied silhouettes.



"I am very pleased for the official Participation of Italy as a Partner Country at Amazon India Fashion Week 2016 organised by the Italian Trade Commission in New Delhi also known as Trade Promotion Office of the Embassy of Italy in India. I am very proud to present one of the extraordinary pillars of the " Made in Italy": Fashion in shoes and bags; that's why it is not by chance that we called our participation in this context as follows: "Fashion Appeals from Shoulders to Heels". Feeling extremely excited about this partnership with FDCI (Fashion Design Council of India), Assocalzaturifici (Italian Footwear Manufacturers' Association) and Aimpes (Italian Leather Goods Manufacturers' Association), we are looking forward to a great event to foster the trade relations between India and Italy in the fashion sector." said Dr. Francesco Pensabene, Trade Commissioner of the Embassy of Italy and Coordinator for Italian Trade Commission Offices in India.



Mr. Sunil Sethi, President, Fashion Design Council of India commented, “We are delighted to be associated with Italy as our Partner Country for the Amazon Fashion Week SS ’17. Italy is known for its beautifully crafted accessories, superlative tailoring and design aesthetics which will add fervor to the fashion week. We look forward to a long and insightful association.”
