Speaking on his new role, Nair said, “My effort has always been to strategically position India on the global fashion map. In sync with international practices, where there are several simultaneous events during a week, Fashion Week at the Emporio will showcase India’s most creative talent during this Indian fashion fiesta. The thought behind this event is to aspire to consistently higher levels of organisation, creativity, presentation and focus, thereby moving the entire fashion industry ahead, keeping in mind the feedback received from designers, buyers, media, and other industry stakeholders.”
