Mumbai: It was a big day for designers Kallo Datta and Aneeth Arora as they were short-listed by IMG, organisers of the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW), to represent India with their lines at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2012 in Berlin in January.
The organisers shortlisted the two from a handful of apt designers, as not every designer would be able to represent India in a right manner, said Anjana Sharma, director fashion of IMG Reliance.
"You have to make sure that the designers who go to Berlin represent India in a correct manner," Sharma told IANS.
"It would be tough. It might be either of them or just the both you never know. It`s the advisory board who guided us in making the selection. It`s just to make sure that we take the correct first step," she said.
Both the designers showcased their lines together on the last day of the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2011, which came to an end Sunday with designer Manish Malhotra`s show.
