New Delhi, July 20 (IANS) Ace designers Anju Modi and Sabyasachi Mukherjee will showcase their collections on the first day of the fourth edition of the PCJ Delhi Couture Week 2013, which starts here July 31.

The announcement was made Saturday by the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), India's apex fashion body. The five-day fashion event will be held at The Taj Palace Hotel here.

"Anju Modi and Sabyasachi are the most sought after designers in the country with a huge fan following. Their shows are a visual treat for the discerning fashion fraternity. We are certain both these designers will give a perfect impetus to the week," Sunil Sethi, president, FDCI, said in a statement.

Modi is "honoured" to open the fashion extravaganza, where she will showcase a collection inspired by Indian mythology.
