For everyone who likes to follow the latest in the world of fashion, India Intimate Fashion Week held on March 18, 2017 at the Leela Hotel, Sahar, Mumbai was a first of its kind event organized in Mumbai or for that matter in India, with a focus on promoting intimate women and men wear.

The event was not only about intimate wear but about promoting “intimacy” in general, with serveral works of art, and installations right outside the auditorium where the event was being held. Have a look at some of the great art pieces by renowned artists at the venue.
In India we still consider talking about intimate wear and lingerie as “taboo”. Thus “#BooTheTaboo” theme was perfect for the IIFW.
Niraj Jawanjal, Founder and Director of IIFW, said “The intimate wear industry is amongst the largest industries across the world and has grown tremendously in last few years. However, in India, we still consider talking about lingerie and intimate wear as ‘Taboo”. While we are bringing a revolution in the field of fashion through IIFW, we would urge people to be open about their choices in this segment and ‘#BooTheTaboo’ in India.”
