: The third edition of the North East India Fashion Week (NEIFW) will begin tomorrow at Nyokum Lapang Ground here. Fashion designer Yana Ngoba said the three-day event was being organized here in association with the tourism department. The third edition of the flagship event - The Khadi Movement - has been conceptualised to inspire the region's artisans and designers, who work exclusively for the promotion of northeastern fabrics, she said. Ngoba, who is also the founder of popular brand Yana in Style, said, "Through NEIFW, we aim to bring recognition to the 'magicians' behind the loom.
We, along with our partner NGOs, aim to train and market the weavers and designers from the region, and help build a brand of their own." The event would showcase collections of around 50 indigenous weavers and designers from different parts of the region, including Delhi and Philippines. A number of breathtaking performances by musicians and dancers from different states of the region have also been lined up for the three-day extravaganza, Ngoba added.
