Niraj Jawanjal, Founder and Director of IIFW, said “The intimate wear industry is amongst the largest industry’s across the world and has grown tremendously in last few years. However, in India, we still consider talking about lingerie and intimate wears as ‘Taboo”. While we are bringing a revolution in the field of fashion through IIFW, we would urge people to open about their choices in this segment and ‘#BooTheTaboo’ in India.”
Talking about the opportunity for the Indian intimate wear industry in a global landscape, he further added “India is undoubtedly amongst the largest potential Intimate apparel market in the world but we still do not have any worthwhile fashion platform that promotes, showcases intimate wear and its related talent. The concept of The India Intimate fashion Week is to provide a powerful and decisive platform to connect all potential stakeholders – Brands, customers, designers etc. in one place.”, Niraj added.
Amit Pandey, Media Head and Associate Partner, IIFW said “With India Intimate fashion Week, we intend to bring alive the most elegant yet unexplored segment of fashion in India. IIFW has already gathered much appreciation from Industry stalwarts’ since it was announced. We are looking at delivering on the superior expectations through a high impact awareness campaign and stunning event. We look forward to some great participation from the industry this year.”
Speaking about the thought behind the social media campaign, he further added “Intimate wear and Lingerie fashion is still in its nascent stage in India with communication being limited and constrained. Our social media campaigns #BooTheTaboo and #TheRightCup will be focussed on breaking the mindset barrier and facilitating open conversations around the category.”
To add more to the elegance of IIFW, the 1st edition of India Intimate Fashion Week will be opened by internationally acclaimed designer Mona Shroff and the glam and glitz of the event will be further aided by ace designers like Nidhi Munim, Karishma Jumani, Keith Jackson.
