Commenting on DHL’s association with Lakmé Fashion Week Mr. R. S. Subramanian, Senior Vice President & Managing Director, DHL Express India said, “The fashion industry is something that we at DHL Express intimately understand, given our association with 30 Fashion Week events spanning 15 cities.

DHL is the Official Logistics partner of IMG Fashion Weeks since 2007 in 11 cities across four continents. Further building on the strong partnership between DHL and IMG Fashion, this year a new global program, DHL Exported, has been announced; open to fashion designers across the world, including India.
This unprecedented global program is to help designers who are already established in their local markets to further their global footprint via the world’s most powerful fashion week
platforms. Indian designers can send their applications for one of the four Fashion Weeks in New York, London, Milan and Tokyo and win a chance to showcase their collection at one of these fashion weeks.
DHL's customers include both large retail groups with complex distribution requirements as well as small, independent fashion boutiques requiring a one-off service. Within this partnership DHL positions itself as the leading logistics company for the fashion industry –one of the world's most creative, innovative and possibly fastest industries.
