FashionFDCI x LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK

NEXA presents ‘The Spotlight’

‘NEXA presents The Spotlight’ has been credited as a collaboration for bringing forth some of the brightest creative minds in the industry to showcase their work at FDCI X Lakmé Fashion Week. After a competitive selection process, the program has announced label ‘Bloni’ by designer Akshat Bansal as the winner of its fourth season.

Participating designers presented their collections along with the idea and concept of their fashion film to an esteemed jury of industry experts at the impressive Fashion Design Council of India headquarters in Delhi. The winning designer, Bloni, will be showcasing his collection at the on-ground edition of FDCI X Lakmé Fashion Week being held between 12-16th October 2022.

The  jury that helmed the compelling process included: Shashank Srivastava – Senior Executive Director, Marketing and Sales at Maruti Suzuki India Limited, Ram Suresh Akella – Executive Director, Marketing at Maruti Suzuki India Limited, Amit Aggarwal designer of his namesake label, Nandini Bhalla, Editor at Cosmopolitan, Harper’s Bazaar and Brides Today, Sunil Sethi – Chairman of FDCI and Jaspreet Chandok – Head of RISE Fashion and Lifestyle.

The winner was declared from a line-up of 8 shortlisted designers – Son of A Noble SNOB by Mani Shankar Singh and Ritu Jain, ESSE by Sahib and Sunayana, Poochki by Ishanee Mukherjee and Anirudh Chawla, Countrymade by Sushant Abrol, Raabta by Rahul, Khanijo by Gaurav KhanijoManjushree Saikia’s Ura Maku and Bloni by Akshat Bansal who introduced their labels through a competitive creative expression in line with NEXA’s spirit of ‘create, inspire’ as they presented their collections.

Akshat Bansal’s vision for the collection was inspired by the need to represent reconstructed emotions that comprehend and sculpt the world’s complex new interfaces and altered realities. When bringing the silhouettes to life, his presentation borrowed from the perspective that these new reconstructed emotions then go on to become one of the first cultural artifacts to help discern, analyze, and pictorialize the multiple labyrinths of existences—the terrestrial, outer space, underground, spiritual, digital, historical, and future. The idea that they provide, the cues and stimuli to build our lives, our worlds, our relationships paved the creative direction for his multi-sensorial presentation.
