The first season of the RFW will have as many as 30 national and international designers participating in it. Some of the names include Vikram Phadnis, Shaahid Amir, lina Tipnis and Rohit Verma. German designer Julia Bruchwitz, known for her couture collection, will also take part in the event.

Bollywood celebrities Vivek Oberoi, Zayed Khan, Rannvijay Singh, Riya Sen and Payal Rohatgi are expected to dazzle on the ramp and jazz up the event.

Renowned jewellery houses and accessory designers are expected to add bling and colour to the show.

If things go as planned, star cricketer Rahul Dravid is likely to walk the ramp for designer duo Rohit and Abhishek.

Why choose Rajasthan as the venueIJ

"We want to revive Rajasthan as the next big fashion hub in the international fashion industry. RFW will definitely be an enriching experience for all those who are involved with the fashion week and I am sure the result will help to boost the Indian fashion industry," said Dhyani.
