Handlooms to the forefront by Fashion Designers

As a part of the Prime Minister’s ‘Make in India’ push, today August Seven marked the third National Handloom Day celebration where people should have a pride in remembering the country’s traditional crafts.

Last year, the Prime Minister attended the function held in Varanasi and the first Handloom Day was celebrated in Chennai. This time it is being held in Guhawati, where the Textile Minister, Smirti Irani, will be present.

Fashion Design Counil of India’s (FDCI) president Sunil Sethi and designers such as Rajesh Pratap Singh, Raw Mango’s Sanjay Garg and Anavila Mishra we also have attended the event and today on Handloom Day more details should be announced on a MOU between the ministry and designers, whereby each designer will work with a handloom cluster.

Over 35 designers from the FDCI will be part of this pioneering collaboration. Since Handloom Day has started, the relationship between government and the fashion industry has become closer, Sethi said.
