However, organizers said that the decision to hold the India fashion week alongside the one in New York had been deliberate.

"About 80 percent of our market is here (in India). Most of the rest is from the Middle East and only five percent are buyers from UK and the US," said Rathi Vinay Jha, director-general of the Fashion Design Council of India.

"It was a conscious decision to keep it along with the New York Fashion Week, since we had no choice. Had we kept the fashion week during the Ramadan period, our Middle East buyers would have been affected," she said.
