"It's been a very successful LIFW for me. Mine was the first show, so I had plenty of time to do some serious business and I'm satisfied." - Rina Dhaka, Designer

"Browns of London are looking for a designer to promote. They're impressed by talent and products, but they'd like to see our designers develop good administrative back-up." - Vinod Kaul, Executive Director, FDCI
