THE FASHION VILLAGE

 

India Resort Fashion Week gives a new dimension to the traditional Indian flea market.  It offers retail space to established as well as upcoming brands as a place to showcase their offerings in resort fashion and life style wear.  Inline with its conception, the IRFW will also offer sinfully delicious food and live entertainment from national and international performers for its patrons.  The proposition is too much to resist for premium consumers looking for a wholesome shopping experience amidst the charm of traditional Goan life.
Candolim Beach in North Goa is one of the longest beaches in Goa.  What adds to the scenic beauty of the sand and sea, are the scrub covered dunes at the back of the beach, which prove to be quite popular with International tourists and Bag-packers.
The main road that is the Candolim Calangute offers stylish shopping, accommodation and a fine dining experience.  But luckily the beach front itself is calm and peaceful, and is known for being free from commercial activity.  Candolim Beach is thus your best bet of an enticing Goan experience.
