Lakmé Fashion Week, IMG Reliance and WeWork Co-working India have come together to launch a fashion incubation program for the young designers in India.
The program is running parallelly across Mumbai and Gurgaon with 80 designers who would be given the opportunity to use the WeWork space for a period of three months. While the first batch is being selected by IMGR, there will be a registration process for future batches.
The key objective of the program is to help young designers to be part of a larger progressive movement that WeWork provides with access to cross industry learning which is missing in the fashion industry.
Since its inception, Lakmé Fashion Week has provided young creative minds with an ideal platform to showcase their talent. Whether it is through the Gen Next programme, or the model auditions, LFW has always lent support to young talent and provided them with relevant opportunities to grow within the fashion industry.
This initiative promises to accelerate growth with opportunities to network and learn from peers in diverse fields of creativity and business.
The Fashion Incubation Program stems from the idea of creating a fashion and design hub, where upcoming creative entrepreneurs will be given the chance to turn their ideas into reality at the WeWork office spaces, through much-needed infrastructure and networking opportunities.
All WeWork spaces include facilities such as Wi-Fi, unlimited coffee and beer, conference room access, daily events and space to curate pop-ups and most importantly, the chance to be a part of a growing community of young, progressive entrepreneurs who are game-changers in diverse fields.
