Indian styles stormed the international fashion scene about a decade ago, and the journey is still on. Delhi-based designer Reynu Taandon is all set to participate in the exhibition Prêt-à-Porter Paris which pioneers in trend forecasting for the next autumn winter season. The exhibition taking place between January 23-26 will have 1075 exhibitors and 1500 labels.
Taandon is showcasing jackets, ballroom dresses, tunics and short dresses in her unnamed collection. The colour palette includes classic steel greys with black and red; and white and black.
“A lot of analysis is involved as your forecasts for the season should not be in stark contrast with what others have to offer,” explains Taandon.
“Europe and Middle East are the biggest markets for Indian designers,” she adds.
FDCI President Sunil Sethi says, “Buyers from abroad have realised that fashion in India is mature and offers variety. Hence, more and more designers are invited to showcase their collection. It’s an encouraging trend.” Notably, in the recent past, designers like Rajesh Pratap Singh, Manish Malhotra, Rohit Gandhi, Gaurav Gupta and Rohit Bal have made a mark in prestigious international fashion events.
