The Delhi Fashion Club collaborated with the Nagaland Garo Tribal Council to hold a fashion show to celebrate the region’s traditional and cutting edge fashion. The runway show was titled ‘International Reinvent Northeast’ and took place at the Wangala Mini Hornbill Festival in Dimapur.
The event was designed to promote the region’s textiles, design talent, and models while simultaneously promoting tourism and culture, the Delhi Fashion Club’s Dimapur chapter announced in a press release on November 23. The runway show took place on November 22 and saw 18 models from the Garo tribe of Nagaland and one model from Shillong, Meghalaya walk the ramp.
Models wore a mix of traditional Nagaland and fusion style designs with bright hues and playful drapes. Dresses were made from handloom textiles from the region and looks focused on the traditional aesthetics of the Garo tribe. Models also wore traditional style beaded jewellery from the Garo tribe.
The Delhi Fashion Club held model auditions in Nagaland and Meghalaya to select its models before holding a workshop at Lakme Academy in Guwahati to prepare the models for the show. Following the runway presentation, Delhi Fashion Club selected six models to feature in upcoming events across the country.
The runway show was choreographed by Harshit Dhingaun and styled by show manager Sharmila Momin. The event was also supported by Lakme Academy and the Government of Nagaland.
