Mr. Manoj Mahla, Director, Craftworld Events said, “Indian designers are trying their best to fill the void in the segment of kids’ fashion. Some of them already have their own line of kidswear and several others are choosing to design for children than for adults. While we already have participation from renowned designers and brands, several talented, up and coming designers are also showing keen interest in India Kids Fashion Week as it will give them a platform to evolve and widen their reach.”
Mahla added, “After the phenomenal response we have received to the last three editions of the India Kids Fashion Week, we are now set to roll out another exciting fashion extravaganza that will be bigger and better than the earlier editions and is set to redefine kidswear India.”
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Deepak Choudhary, Director, CEO, Event Capital said, “In the past few years, kids fashion has evolved drastically. Parents are now extremely style-conscious and want their kids to be sporting the latest trends. Kids, too, don’t lag behind when it comes to hitting the right notes, be it in a jacquard skirt or a long-hooded waistcoat.”
He noted, “They look up to their favourite icons be it actors, musicians or even cartoon characters and draw inspiration from their styles. Understanding the potential for kidswear market in India, many international brands have created a strong foothold in the country. We wish to give further impetus to this space with the latest edition of our highly successful fashion show, India Kids Fashion Week.”
