New Delhi, April 6, 2022 — The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) Couture Hall of Fame awards featured a glittering ceremony at the Taj Mahal hotel.

It was an evening of glamour as the leading lights of haute couture, known for elevating Indian crafts with laborious techniques, were given a much-awaited ovation.

Anamika Khanna, acclaimed for her timeless, detailed pieces, was among those who won excellence in nurturing the design language.

JJ Valaya, the czar of embroideries, who adds his magical touch with a royal edge, was given the trophy by Indian economist and civil servant Mr. Montek Singh Ahluwalia.

Bollywood’s favorite designer, Manish Malhotra, was elated to receive the honor from Managing Editor (Lifestyle), Hindustan Times, Ms. Sonal Kalra.

Neeti Aayog CEO, Mr. Amitabh Kant, felicitated Media Makers Asha Kochhar & Vidyun Singh for their contribution to the Indian fashion universe.

The beauty of the evening was the soul-stirring music by Taufiq Qureshi, who performed on the stage and kept the well-heeled audience mesmerized by his rhythm. Sahil Vasudeva played on the piano, keeping the night engaging during a seven-course meal, while Violinist Madina Abaeva enthralled the guests with her tunes.

The master of ceremonies of the evening, Rajiv Makhni, kept the audience in good humor with his witty introductions.

Those present at the prestigious award function were guests of the awardees at their reserved tables. The other attendees included FDCI’s present and former Board members and erstwhile couturiers who have been part of the Couture Week journey.

“The FDCI has always believed in awarding those whose contribution to the Indian design space has been exemplary. Their dialogue with textures, movement, fabrics, and craftsmanship over the years shows their innate ability to create passionately. Therefore, the FDCI and the Board of Governors have honored this evening,” Sunil Sethi, Chairman of the Fashion Design Council of India, concluded.
