Handlooms are the largest employer in India after agriculture and the beauty lies in the fact that each region boasts of an indigenous textile, which is brilliant and unique in more ways than one. Assisting this quiet revolution, the FDCI’s fashion brigade is gearing up to add pizzazz by crafting ensembles with a soulful flavour. These include, Abraham & Thakore, Anavila, Anita Dongre, akaaro by Gaurav Jai Gupta, Krishna Mehta, Payal Pratap, Rina Dhaka, Samant Chauhan, Pinnacle by Shruti Sancheti, Urvashi Kaur, and Virtues by Viral, Ashish & Vikrant.
