~The much-awaited showcase will be hosted on-ground on Day One of FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week, in Mumbai~
National, 27th September 2022: The Fashion Design Council of India announces the return of Fashion Maestro and celebrated designer Shahab Durazi as the FDCI Showcase of the season, on day one of the event being held in Mumbai between 12-16th October 2022 at the Jio World Convention Centre. With an illustrious career spanning over three decades, Shahab will be presenting a retrospective of his eponymous label ‘Shahab Durazi’ dating back to approximately ten years. The collection will be an expression of the unique craft that the master courtier stands for. It will transcend season, gender, and genre, while attempting to address the ever-evolving role of style and elegance in a fashion system that thrives on rapid change.
Commenting on his upcoming fashion showcase Shahab Durazi said, "It’s always an exciting feeling to showcase on an esteemed platform like FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week, and I am happy to be doing this as the FDCI Showcase Designer of the season. The capsule collection will endorse slow fashion and the relevance of timelessness that defies the concept of trends and promotes classic couture with contemporary nuances. As it has always been, the hope with this collection too, is to consciously create a distinctive space for western couture that’s indisputably based on a unique aesthetic"
Shahab’s capsule collection will create a sense of nostalgia with pieces (both for men and women) reminiscent of the 40s and 50s: an era known for its vintage chic. The collection will also be complemented with an assortment of accessories.
Commenting on Shahab’s first-ever FDCI showcase at FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week, Sunil Sethi Chairman FDCI said," We at FDCI couldn’t be happier to present a showcase by someone as respected and celebrated as Shahab Durazi. Over the decades, Shahab has created history with his couture, and bold fashion statements, and we are certain that this presentation will be no different. We welcome back Shahab and are proud to present the magic of Shahab Durazi as the FDCI Showcase.”
