Designer duo recognised with a national honour

Internationally acclaimed designer duo Falguni and Shane Peacock added another feather to their cap by winning the Bharat Samman Award, which was constituted by the NRI Institute 27 years ago. The ceremony was held in the capital recently. After competing with 125 nations and winning the World Fashion Designer Award at the Miss World Beauty Pageant, the designers are already raising their bar for 2015. The Bharat Samman Awards are given to a select group of people of Indian origin for outstanding achievements in their chosen field of activities.

Recognition is given to entrepreneurs, businessmen and philanthropists who have dedicated their lives to making India proud. This is the first time that the award has been given to fashion designers for their outstanding work. The couple says, "We work really hard to take our brand overseas and create recognition worldwide. We want to keep expanding and establishing our unique fashion sensibility globally. This award puts India on the international fashion map and testifies the power of the country on the global front. 2015 is already off to a great start for us and we would like to thank the institute for bestowing this honour upon us.''

Known for their impeccable designs, the two have a track record of dressing the most coveted style icons in the world. Their designs are favourites with the likes of Britney Spears, Madonna, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, JLo and Fergie, to name a few. More recently, their SS15 designs were spotted on Lady Gaga, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea, Willow Shields (of Hunger Games fame), Demi Lovato and Kylie Jenner, straight off the runway. Among other shows, the designers showcase their collection at New York Fashion Week and India Bridal Week. Up next on the anvil for them is the India Beach Fashion Week, where they will showcase their latest collection of resortwear as grand finale designers.
