Among all the sartorial razzmatazz, the upcoming edition of the French European Indian Fashion Week (FEIFW) will witness a special line dedicated to the Indian Army.
To be held from October 21-23 in Paris, FEIFW will salute the spirit of Indian soldiers through the move.
“We are going to show a collection dedicated to the Indian Army at FEIFW in Paris,” read a statement issued by the organisers.
To create a buzz for the event, the organisers also hosted a fashion flashmob in the capital’s busy Connaught Place area. While people were going about their regular business–crowd of models and children swarmed around in front of the central park.
Models sashayed up and down a runway, and designers, acid attack survivors from NGO Acid Survivors Foundation India and children from NGO Shrishti participated in the flashmob to salute the Indian Army for their bravery.
Satish Reddy, President of FEIFW, said, “I want to salute to our armed forces, who selflessly risk their lives to protect our beloved country and our families.”
Show director Liza Varma said, “I am very happy that people from all over India are saluting the hardships of our soldiers and this was to show them that their efforts are being appreciated by a grateful nation.”
