This initiative will not only set a grand stage for Indian menswear designers, but also reflect the financial clout wielded by a vast market that has seen explosive growth in recent years. This unprecedented boom has been fuelled by a transformation in attitudes among Indian men about fashion.”

From the early 90s, Van Heusen has taken the lead in constantly bringing trendsetting fashion to the Indian professionals.
