    Every week, around the world, the Alliance Française network fosters bonds between francophone and local culture.

    Our countries, France and India, both recognise that long strides need to be made to address the rapidly escalating issues between over-consumption on the one hand and poverty on the other, both leading to environmental challenges.

    The textile industry is one the world’s top 5 polluters. And knowing that a large portion of the clothes on the French market is produced in India. This is our duty and priority to work hand in hand on finding solutions for better practices in the fashion industry.

    This festival is our platform to expand the awareness of healthy fashion and the preservation of the planet. We want to celebrate those who are on a journey to create a safer, cleaner and fairer future for fashion.
