In its third edition this season, the program, after a competitive selection process has announced label ‘Two Point Two’ by designer Anvita Sharma, as the winner. She gets to showcase her collection at the on-ground edition of FDCI X Lakmé Fashion Week to be held on 23-27th March 2022.
Participating designers presented their collections along with the idea and concept of their fashion film through a virtual presentation to a jury of industry experts.

Anvita’s collection, ‘Behind Closed Doors’ is inspired by the chaos that is born when the true self emerges. Her winning presentation was about the state of reflection that the pandemic brought out when humans were confined at home, the selfless nature of humans that came to light at the end of the pandemic. Her collection is an ode to that very faith and a reminder that hope, compassion, solidarity and above all love exists.
