Organised by FDCI, the seven-day event will include 39 shows and 70 exhibition stalls.

Speaking on Lakme's association with Lakme India Fashion Week, Anil Chopra, Vice President, Lakme Lever, said, "LIFW continues to be one of Lakme's biggest initiatives and as in the past, consumers, trade and media can look forward to Lakme taking some unique initiatives to expand the realm of fashion, style and beauty on and beyond the ramp."

The event will showcase the designs of Malini Ramani, Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Tarun Tahiliani , JJ Valaya, Rina Dhaka, Ritu Kumar, Rohit Bal to name a few.

It will be co-sponsored by DHL, Liberty, Hyundai and Royal Challenge. Samsung will be the associate sponsor and Sony Entertainment Television will broadcast the event. Foster will sponsor booze and the official radio partner will be Red FM.

The commercial aspects and the management of LIFW will be handled by IMG. "IMG has consistently ensured that the event is sponsored, organised and leveraged to global standards and this is reflected in the amazing success and status the event enjoys," said Ravi Krishnan, Managing Director, IMG/TWI South Asia and Senior Vice President, IMG.
