At Pune Fashion Week we aim at creating an environment where tradition and luxury are brought onto a single platform enabling an inflection point that creates exquisite pieces of art while defining trends in Luxury fashion. Further, a robust fashion platform, PFW is focused on showcasing outstanding GenNext talent and luxury brands to a distinguished target audience.
Having started off as a conventional fashion week, Pune Fashion Week (PFW) has over the years successfully transformed into one of India’s leading Luxury Fashion Weeks. While the first six seasons of PFW have focused on establishing Pune firmly onto the fashion map of India and providing a platform for GenNext designers and Luxury, the seventh season will see PFW broaden its horizons to truly capture the essence of Bharat and its interplay with World Fashion and trends.
Bharat has always been considered a rich abode of culture, arts and crafts. It has always been very fashionable and known for its magnificence of the handcrafted. Over the years, with globalization, as well as, competition from the cheap, rapidly produced products of the modern age, somehow the vibrant sparkle of this magnificent flame has diminished.

The focus here is predominantly on sustainability initiatives. It aims at doing so by not just reinvesting some of its profits back but also by creating a pool of social capital, both financial and volunteers, while maintaining a transparent and strict monitoring mechanism to ensure
In short, Fashionable Bharat aims at delivering the Best of Indian Heritage & Culture across the Globe, in all its glory.
