The Asian Designer Week came into existence after many felt there was a need to bring young and talented designers from various parts of Asia under one roof.

ADW was also conceptualised with an aim to bring the focus of the fashion industry back on the designers for many felt that the entire limelight was being hogged by the entertainment industry.

In its years of association with the entertainment and fashion industry, the organisers of ADW met with many talented NextGen artists looking for the right platform to launch their big dreams.

The organisers of ADW wanted to address this issue and provide an equal opportunity platform to emerging designers and artists across the country. This is how the Asia Designer Week was conceived.

ADW focuses purely on showcasing designers from different parts of the country and continent. The concept behind Asia Designer Week is that it embodies the strong bond that exists between Asian countries with respect to the cultural values, traditions and heritage despite the diversities.

Recently the brand has also associated with other international fashion weeks to run designers exchange program. The associations will help designers from all these countries to showcase their talent at the global platforms like Madmood Milan Fashion Week in Italy, Eurasia Fashion Week in China, Aspara Fashion Week in Kazakhstan and Ukraine Fashion Week.  With these associations and focus on young talent ADW aims for a big name in the international fashion industry.

The Agenda
