Elaborating on his association with this unique property, designer –
· Arjun Khanna said, “Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights 2017 is a great platform showcasing and focusing on fine menswear. I’m happy to be associated with this trendsetting platform and of course with Gentlemen’s Quarterly (GQ) which I’ve grown up reading and looking at since childhood.”
· Dhruv Kapoor added, “Our association with Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights remains unmatched. The offered platform pulls the best from all fields… from influencers to an ever-expanding clientele.”
· Gaurav Gupta commented, “Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights is the only serious men’s high fashion platform in this country. This is where new collections and ideas take birth and I’ve been looking forward to be able to do this together. I would not think of a better way for us to launch our menswear collection – a bespoke Made to Measure line in India. The collection is inspired by constellations, stars and space, and consists of very edgy, sexy and progressive tuxedos, asymmetric jackets. The starting point was from my best friend Navkirat Sodhi’s poem Shake your telescope so that the stars trickle in.”
· Raghavendra Rathore said, “GQ, the Bible of men’s true innate lifestyle, brings close to its precious cliques, those who essentially create the bravura of fashion, using their crafts and skills, season after season, for one reason – because Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights is about people and their influence over fashion!”
· Rajesh Pratap Singh further added, “I am happy to be back again at the finest men’s fashion event in the country. The collection I’m showcasing at Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights 2017 is all about a new direction in silhouettes and construction. The looks will be pure, modern and definitely from small town India.”
· Sahil Aneja added, “GQ is undoubtedly one of the best platforms for men who are fashion aficionados. I firmly believe an association with GQ will help me develop further, and expand my horizons as I compete in this ever-expanding, vibrant and exciting menswear industry. This collection is an amalgamation of street style and tailoring. Self-made printed fabric and text will play an important part of our collection. Surface designing will be noteworthy throughout. It has been inspired from today’s youth which comprises the modern man who has evolved and stepped out of the comfort zone into the broad fusion-led and dynamic international fashion world.”
· Shantanu & Nikhil commented, “This is our third straight showcase at the Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights. Needless to say, this is one men’s only event that we look forward to each year & gives us a whole new arena where storytelling & fashion come alive on a sartorial canvas.”
· Ujjawal Dubey concluded by saying, “It is exciting to be back at Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights this year. At Antar-Agni, we love GQ and believe that this is the best platform when it comes to men’s fashion. The collection I am going to be showcasing is called MEN OF METAL and it is about men who come from the land of struggle and the land lies within. The sheen of the metallic yarns is a proud portrayal complementing textured surfaces while the shades of deep greys and blacks add to the intensity.”
