    In a celebration of creativity and innovation, the 37th edition of GenNext, a pivotal talent discovery programme by Lakme Fashion Week in partnership with FDCI and INIFD, has unveiled its latest batch of four exceptional winning designers. Rohitash Notani (Rosani), Charmee Ambavat (The Terra Tribe), Kriti Greta Singhee (Kriti Greta Singhee), and Shimona Agrawal (Shimona Agrawal) emerged victorious, earning the opportunity to showcase their distinctive collections on the runway of Lakme Fashion Week X FDCI, scheduled for the March edition in Mumbai.

    Rohitash Notani, an IED Milan alum, blends conventional masculinity with feminine sensuality in ‘Anima & Animus’, featuring high-end embroideries and workwear fabrics. Charmee Ambavat, a NIFT Mumbai graduate, draws inspiration from African tribes in ‘Indigene’, showcasing versatile designs. Shimona Agrawal, a NIFT Gandhinagar alum, emphasises sustainability in ‘Re-imagined for the Modern Soul’, crafted from handwoven Banarasi silk. Kriti Greta Singhee, with degrees from NIFT Kolkata and Istituto Marangoni, explores geometric patterns in ‘Third Space-Sustainable Future’ using organic hand-woven silks and Bengal cotton silks.

    The announcement is in line with Lakme Fashion Week x FDCI’S continuing efforts to propel emerging talents onto both national and global stages.
