Indian designer duo Walnut to be part of Japan Fashion Week

December 27, 2010

Designer label ‘Walnut’ by Divya and Nidhi Gambhir has been selected to showcase their designs at the next Japan Fashion Week.

The designer duo will showcase their collection at the Asian Designers Collection in Tokyo in March 2011. ‘Walnut’ by Divya and Nidhi Gambhir was selected by the Asian Designers’ Collection Committee from a shortlist of five designers. The other shortlisted designers were Akaaro by Gaurav Jai Gupta, 5X by Ajit Kumar, Neelanjan Ghosh and 11:11 Cell DSGN.

Here are some glimpses Walnut by Divya and Nidhi Gambhir’s show at the recent Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WLIFW).

The jury, comprising representatives from the Onward Kashiyama Co Ltd and New Designer Fashion Grand Prix Committee, announced their decision after they visited India mid-December for one-to-one meetings with the shortlisted designers.

“Japan is a comparatively new and growing market where Indians are making headway,” according to Sunil Sethi, President, Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI). The visibility and exposure this event brings to Divya and Nidhi Gambhir, and to the Indian fashion scene should have hopefully positive results.
