What can we expect from India Couture Week 2023?

Ever since its inception in 2008, India Couture Week has been instrumental in shaping the Indian fashion landscape in extraordinary ways. In an interview with HELLO!, FDCI Chairman Sunil Sethi shared, “When it comes to weddings and other related events, lots of people started wearing things that were away from the traditional garments and that began with ICW. This is because designers used this platform to cater to a younger audience. They explored new colour palettes, materials, and silhouettes that were never seen before.”
