Designers Didier Lecoanet and Hemant Sagar, who established couture house Lecoanet Hemant in the eighties, celebrated their 38-year-old fashion journey with an exhibition titled "Paris, New Delhi: From Haute Couture to the Technologies of Elegance".

The exhibition aimed to spread awareness about the need to invest in research and design that can be instrumental in placing India on the map of global fashion.

"There is a sense of fashion nostalgia. A celebration of artisanal excellence, an ode to our labour of love that we hope to evoke. We see a promise of a pragmatic future that beholds Indian fashion," the designers jointly said.

The designer label initially worked from Paris with a flagship store. They were also members of the Parisian Haute Couture Syndicate from 1984-2000 and have created 33 collections with the aim of transitioning from artisanal to semi industrial.

In 2000, they moved their business from couture to ready-to-wear and also from Paris to New Delhi. This journey of the brand was the theme of the exhibition.

The exhibition is taking place at Bikaner house here, starting from Sunday till March 22. One will be able to see some of the finest pieces designed by the designer label.

The exhibition was inaugurated in the capital by French Ambassador Alexandre Ziegler.
