 Mr. Dharmendra Pradhan Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship was the Guest of Honour. Hon’ble MP Shri Manoj Tiwari and Hon’ble MP Baijayant Panda were also present along with other distinguished guests at this event.

Sunil Sethi, President FDCI commented, “In my entire career, I have never seen a fashion show that has over 5000 attendees. It is a record of sorts! The crafts of Odisha tell tales of the state that has some of the most intricate weaves like silk ikkat using the age-old Bandha technique to the memorable Bomkai saris. It offers a diverse set of woven wonders that have been curated painstakingly on handlooms. This fashion presentation is a tribute to the beauty of Odisha and Made in India.”
