It is not often that Chennai hosts a gala fashion event with a line-up of some great designers. Mumbai and Delhi have been steady with their fashion weeks organized round the year. However, it is time we all sit up and laud the herald of Madras Couture Fashion Week 2018, which is entering its fifth season this year. Organized annually by Satish Jupiter’s Jupiter Events, this is one gala fashion event, we are looking forward to! The fact that it is hosted at the plush Hilton Chennai hotel in Guindy only makes it more appealing.

About 12 fashion labels showcasing their best designs and models from Mumbai, Chennai and Bengaluru walking the ramp. Most of the designers are from the city, barring two, who will be showcasing their creations for the first time in Madras Couture Fashion Week. Young fashion designers like Praveena Naidu, Pavithra Diwakar, Bushra Farheen, Harin Kumar and Shalini BR will be showcasing their couture wear along with big brands Rare Rabbit, Satya Paul and Springfield. Jayanthi Ballal, who conceptualised the Mysore Fashion Week and has done numerous fashion shows across the country and abroad will also participate at the fashion week.

Madras Couture Week is ongoing at Hilton Chennai on June 29 and 30. Entry by invitation only.
