Additional members from the media and buyers will be announced shortly.

Anil Chopra, Vice President, Lakme Lever said: “The GenNext Show is another unique initiative from Lakme Fashion Week. The selected designers would get the opportunity of a lifetime to display their collections on this common platform and to interact with and develop lucrative business-driven relationships with a targeted group of domestic and international buyers and media. This distinctive program is a part of our on-going endeavor to integrate India with the global fashion world.”

Mr. Ravi Krishnan, Managing Director, IMG-TWI South Asia and Senior Vice-President, IMG said, “The GenNext Show is an important aspect of Lakme Fashion Week.
