The growth of Indian fashion with its representation in the Cannes Film Festival

The Cannes Film Festival is an annual film festival held in Cannes, France, that throws the spotlight on new films and documentaries from the globe of various genres. Each year several artists, celebrities and even influencers alike are called to this film festival, involving a panel of judges, with Deepika Padukone being a part of this year's panel. With this, India is in the spotlight, with even the theme for the pavilion revolving around India— 'India the Content Hub of the World', making it the first country of honour at the Cannes Film Festival.

Several Indian designers of clothing, shoes and accessories (jewellery & bags) were showcased and donned by various festival attendees. Although few of the brands are already famous, it is still a huge deal to be represented at such a grand scale of the event. It beautifully showcases the immense talent of the Indian film and fashion industries.

Let's take a look at some of the Indian brands adorned at the Cannes Film Festival:
