The powerhouses of fashion & beauty in India, Lakme & RISE Worldwide; in partnership with the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) have announced the dates for the 2023 editions of Lakme Fashion Week X FDCI to be held in Mumbai and Delhi, respectively.

Sunil Sethi, Chairman of FDCI said, "2023 marks two years of FDCI and Lakme Fashion Week joining forces to work together again and we couldn't be happier. Together, we have been able to create lucrative business opportunities for the industry, and the upcoming season will be no different. We're keen to ensure the business of fashion happens here, and can't wait to share everything, that is being planned for the March edition in Mumbai."
Lakme Fashion Week in partnership with FDCI will be back with two showcase areas for designers, and talent discovery programmes for new and emerging talent and will be seen furthering its sustainability-led efforts while also continuing its focus on inclusivity and diversity.
Sumati Mattu, Head of Innovations at Lakme said, "Lakme has always been an invitation to beauty enthusiasts to celebrate themselves and their beauty with high-impact make-up and skin solutions that are her allies in elevating their look.
Lakme has had a history of many firsts- be it product innovations, trends, or even ways to reimagine 'beauty' itself. In that journey, fashion has played a pivotal role, with Lakme Fashion Week setting the tone and being an inspiration for a continually evolving global Indian. We are excited to present another milestone year of Indian fashion and look forward to presenting our designers' perspective on both style and sustainability."
"Lakme Fashion Week in partnership with FDCI continues its commitment towards presenting alternate editions in India's Fashion Capitals Mumbai and Delhi. We are very happy to kickstart 2023 in Mumbai with a week-long celebration and curation continuing through the main event from 9th-12th March.
We look forward to engaging with seasoned as well as new talent in the design and fashion community," adds Jaspreet Chandok, Head of RISE Fashion, and Lifestyle.
