Meghalaya Set To Make Its Mark On Fashion Map With Shillong Festival

By Nimerta Chawla

While many continue to complain that there are too many fashion weeks in the country, here is another territory on the Indian fashion map that is set to host its own style fiesta.

The North-East will be hosting the first-ever 'Shillong Fashion Week' from October 19-20, bringing together popular designers such as Jenjum Gadi, Anand Bhushan, Tamara, Gaurav and Ritika, Sophia M. Sangma and Arya to showcase their work.

An exclusive fashion presentation initiated by the state of Meghalaya, the two-day affair aims at raising awareness about fashion and current trends among the people of Meghalaya and neighbouring states.

While some of the participating designers, such as Gadi and Bhushan, have already been a part of the prestigious Wills Lifestyle India and Lakmé Fashion weeks earlier, and gained much recognition for their designs, there are some who will be debuting at the fashion week.

'This first of its kind fashion fete is going to be a big platform for local designers and models to showcase their talent. It's an initiative to get Meghalaya recognised as a fashion city,' says Julie Deb, co-founder, Shillong Fashion Week.
