While the designer fraternity is busy showcasing menswear trends at the ongoing Van Heusen mensweek, designers Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna have another reason to rejoice. The duo has been chosen to be the Grand Finale designers for the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring-Summer’ 12, due to take place in Delhi during October 8-12 this year.
Although an official announcement to this effect is due in a few days, a source told HT City, “Rohit and Rahul have been finalised as the Grand Finale designers and are busy preparing for a grand show, befitting the event.”
The duo had earlier done the grand finale at the menswear week in 2009 and before that at the Wills Lifestyle India fashion week in 2006. There is speculation that Gandhi-Khanna agreed to do a joint show for the ongoing mens week with three other designers on condition that they be given the grand finale. “That may not be true. Since they did their last grand finale many years back, they were anyway major contenders this time,” says a senior designer, not wishing to be named.
Organisers FDCI refused to comment, saying the formal announcement is awaited.
