“Couture Week brings the much required platform for Indian designers to showcase best - customized, handcrafted, beautiful India.”



Ashish Soni


“I’m really looking forward to being part of the first edition of HDIL India Couture Week. HDIL’s commitment to fashion is much appreciated and I’m sure this is the start of a new chapter in the history of Indian fashion.”



J J Valaya


“HDIL ICW is a much needed credible platform for the best that this country has to offer in its version of haute couture. Long overdue and therefore very welcome.”



Manav Gangwani


“Haute Couture is emblematic of the triumph of costume and fashion, the modern entity that combines novelty and synergy…… “HDIL” by supporting the very 1st India Couture Week, is providing a platform to the country’s most magnificent designers, an opening to let their Imagination run amok & present their creativity at its best.”



Pallavi Jaikishan


“Haute Couture has forever been the benchmark of luxury and exclusivity in the world of Fashion. HDIL brings this infatuation with opulence and rarity to the city of Mumbai, raising the bar for Indian fashion by unveiling this epitome of exclusivity.”



Rohit Bal


“In a country appropriately named the Golden Peacock, luxury has always been a passion and India’s affair with luxury is not only recent but has been a part of its heritage for more than 3000 years. Thanks to HDIL the Haute Couture Fashion Week is now not only just a dream but a welcome reality.”



Suneet Varma

“India has a huge tradition of dressing up and celebrating opulence. The HDIL initiative to celebrate Indian couture is a great platform for designers like me that believe in and live for the artistic and creative freedom of couture.”



Tarun Tahiliani


“The fabled luxury of India belonged more to the world of couture than it ever did to ready to wear. No ornamentation, too detailed, too fine, too painstaking or tedious and no predefined hints of the labour of love to weave, or embroider for our special events.



Semi precious metals were woven into clothes- so it is befitting that we now have a couture week to service bridal and specific Indian occasion wear with all the luxury recreated through the generosity of HDIL ICW and the patronage of this great form. Old Indian luxury given birth in new forms.”



Varun Bahl


“Haute Couture is the unique flavour of the fashion ideal. I deeply appreciate the combined effort of HDIL and FDCI towards promoting this supreme arena of fashion’s art by organizing the Couture Week for a resurgent India that is ready to shoulder the responsibility of carrying into the future its legacy.”
