LACONIC 2019

— JASMEEN DUGAL

When I last met Puneet Khatri, Founder President, Fashion Design Council Of Rajasthan, he spoke passionately about how the non-profitable organisation would be a supervisory organisation for the state's fashion designers and provides them with a platform in addition to promoting and enhancing the textiles, arts and crafts native to Rajasthan. It was at that moment I realised that their time had arrived and the world would soon take notice too. Fast forward to this weekend, and things have accelerated at warp speed, as FDCR gears to present its inaugural showcase — Laconic.

 

This remarkable success is down to the fact that FDCR knows what it wants, never straying from its vision and values. The two-day festival on March 2, 3 will host distinguished personalities from the fashion and entertainment fraternity including film director Madhur Bhandarkar; fashion photographer Daboo Ratnani who has just been awarded the Dada Saheb Phalke Award For Excellence In Photography ; designers Aslam Khan, Rocky S, Krishna Mehta, Wendell Rodricks, James Ferreira, Babita Malkani, Arjun and Anjalee Kapoor among others, and will witness fashion shows, motivational sessions, exhibition, workshops and musical performances by Rubaru, Swagisthan and Josh Crooner Live. ''The festival will have interactive sessions with acclaimed designers, who will share their journey, aspiration and advice with students. There will also be photography and make-up workshops. Overall, Laconic will be a valuable educational and networking experience for students as it will help them focus on what they want to do at this moment in time and how to nurture their own path'' explains Puneet Khatri.

 

Indeed, FDCR has understood the right moment to make a change, introducing methods to support budding designers and fashion students, allowing a visibility never seen before in the state. And with the inception of this annual platform, it will help them find inspiration, develop their design aesthetic, face the market with courage and connect them to the professional realities in each segment of the fashion industry. Stay tuned into this space as I bring you interviews, behind the scenes and all the details of the sessions and star-truffled shows!
