Budding Designers Josh and Vedangi to unveil their SS 14 collections at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week

Cotton Council International (CCI) in its initiative to promote young talents of the country congratulated designers Josh Goraya and Vedangi Agarwal on the debut at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week. Winners of the highly coveted ‘Let’s Design’ competition, Josh and Vedangi will unveil their SS 14 collections at the Hi 5 show on October 13, 2013. Organized by the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), Asia's biggest five-day fashion will take place October 9-13, 2013 at Hall No. 18 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.

Conceptualized by CCI to educate and inspire young designers to work with cotton, Cotton Council International’s ‘Let’s Design’ has grown to become India’s premier design competition. The aim is to nurture young talent while igniting a passion for working with cotton fabric.

Taking cue from the competition, the collections being showcased by both designers will be predominantly cotton.

“At Cotton Council International we understand how important it is to nurture young talent in the fashion industry,” commented Agnieszka Fijol, head of consumer marketing in India for CCI. “Josh and Vedangi are great advocates for cotton, using high quality fabrics in their collections and we’re delighted to be working with them”.
“Encouragement when you’re emerging onto the fashion scene is vital for new designers. Working with CCI and FDCI has provided us with a fantastic platform to showcase our collections at India Fashion Week and to incorporate high quality cottons into our collections”, said Josh. “Naturally I’ve always been aware of cotton but working with CCI has opened my eyes to the breadth of possibilities in cotton which has allowed me to grow as a designer”, added Vedangi.

Mr. Sunil Sethi, President FDCI quotes, “FDCI has always been supportive of emerging talent and keeping our commitment to the winning designers of the show Let’s Design 5 of participation at WIFW, we look forward to what these young designers have to present. The excitement is building as both these designers will be showing their cotton collection”
