New Delhi, March 5, 2020: The Lotus Make-up India Fashion Week in association with EbixCash Autumn-Winter 2020, by the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), which was to take place from March 11-15, 2020, at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Lodhi Road, New Delhi stands postponed.
The Fashion Design Council of India extends its concern to the people affected by the COVID-19 and as a leading fashion body is taking stock of the situation on real-time basis, it awaits further directives from the Government. The effort is to safeguard the well-being of the fraternity and the invited guests for the upcoming LMIFW, by not having them become a part of crowded spaces, being one of the immediate public advisory issued by the health experts. Conducting the event under such circumstances will not benefit any stakeholder.
“I would like to reiterate that the LMIFW had to be postponed keeping the safety of thousands of people, who were involved and not just guests but also team members, buyers, and partners in mind. Due to the growing incidents reported globally, it would only be prudent to keep an event of this magnitude on hold. I would like to thank our title partner Lotus Make-up, associate partner EbixCash and the FDCI Board for suggesting and supporting this decision. Needless to say, our other partners, Suthol, Technogym, Pearl Academy, Chivas Music CDs, 6 Degree, Elle, Icons, Te-ame Teas, Raw Pressery, Toni & Guy and Vivanta, are all in agreement with this move. Even our logistic suppliers, vendors and talent teams have supported us with this. Once again we thank you all for your constant support to the Council and hope to continue to celebrate Indian fashion in the coming months,” said Sunil Sethi, Chairman FDCI.
