Lakmé Fashion Week along with WeWork kickstart ‘Fashion Talks’ in Mumbai

Taking the lead once again in creating conversations on fashion and the industry, Lakmé Fashion Week recently hosted the first ever ‘Fashion Talks’ at WeWork office spaces in BKC Mumbai.

India’s leading young designers, Nikhil Thampi and Nishka Lulla together with IMG Reliance’s Head of Fashion Jaspreet Chandok came together to discuss various facets of fashion and creativity in India today. Well known stylist Ekta Rajani was the moderator of the panel discussion.

Talking about the concept, Jaspreet Chandok, Head of Fashion – IMG Reliance said, “The fashion landscape in India is constantly evolving with young designers who bring fresh and new ideas to the fore every season at Lakmé Fashion Week. We are happy to debut Fashion Talks at WeWork which serves as the perfect place for creators to meet and collaborate. This was the first of many such immersive discussions which we plan to have on an ongoing basis.”

While Nikhil spoke about his journey from a psychology student to one of the country’s most distinguished designers, having dressed the leading ladies of Bollywood, Nishka shared her story of learning and growing as a designer with her mother, designer Neeta Lulla’s creative influence. Both Nishka and Nikhil shared their experiences, spoke about the challenges they faced as young designers, their learnings and their vision for the future of fashion design. The designers showcased three iconic looks each from their collections.

Jaspreet further added to the understanding of the climate of creativity and entrepreneurship in India today.

The initiative was liked by designers, who shared their views by talking about their journey. “It’s been six years since I have been a part of the fashion industry. My career’s starting point was at Lakmé Fashion Week, so I have an emotional attachment with the platform. Everyone perceives fashion industry to be very glamourous, but very few know of the challenges we face. We got together for the Fashion Talks at We Work in association with a platform like Lakmé Fashion Week to share our insights and experiences first hand,” said Nikhil. 

Adding to the thought, Nishka said, “Fashion Talks by Lakmé Fashion Week and IMG Reliance at WeWork was a great initiative as there are so many young designers who want to know more about the business of fashion as it is the need of the hour.”

WeWork is a platform for creators which believes in offering a holistic creative experience in workspaces. By hosting Fashion Talks with Lakmé Fashion Week, WeWork strives to bring together some of the best creative minds through an event that is designed to inspire our community.
