Indian contemporary fashion and historic dance will be the highlights on the first day of "Incredible India Week" which opens tomorrow and continues until Sunday at Siam Paragon. This will be a chance for Thais to witness glamorous Indian national costume with a contemporary twist by Joy Mitra and Vikram Phadnis, two of the most sought-after designers among Bollywood stars. The fashion show will be staged only at the opening ceremony of "Incredible India Week" which is set for a 6pm start in the Hall of Mirrors, M floor.
