Vaghish Pathak, Chairman, FEF India Fashion Awards, said, “Fashion for good is not just a trend, but a conscious commitment to weave sustainability into the fabric of style. Fashion must echo the need for choices that are responsible, improving the lives of small artisans and craftsmen who play a very important role in keeping our heritage alive.”

Talking about the 4th edition of the event, Sanjay Nigam, Founder of FEF India Fashion Awards, said, “We are delighted that distinguished guests and speakers shared their thoughts about sustainability and fashion at the 4th edition of the FEF India Fashion Awards. Our theme, ‘Fashion for Good,’ is more than just a slogan; it represents a commitment to promoting sustainable fashion. We hope to spark transformative change in the industry through the thought-provoking conversations that took place today. Insights from today’s conversations will help pave a future in which fashion not only dazzles but also respects the environment and preserves our rich heritage.”

Sa’ad Al-Qaddumi, President, World Crafts Council, said, “Following the impactful discussions at the FEF India Fashion Awards, it is evident that the industry is ready for a sustainable and culturally enriching shift.

Throwing light on the sustainable practices followed in her brand, Fashion Designer and Actor, Masaba Gupta, said, “As a brand we make small changes everyday to make ourselves sustainable.
