Showcasing the traditional garment of Assam on a national platform could make it globally relevant and improve the plight of weavers. If the Kanjivaram sari could become an International celebrity why can’t the Mekhela Chador do so?
Designer Sanjukta Dutta has been selected to present her collection at the pre-finale of Lakme Fashion Week. The show is scheduled for August 28. She has previously showcased her collections at Mysore Fashion Week, the Indian Beach Fashion Week and more.
Sanjukta Dutta proved that one need not wait for the right time to follow their dreams. Talking to Shweta Raj Kanwar from TNT-The Northeast Today, Sanjukta talks about her journey of becoming a fashion designer from being a technocrat.
