Aagor Daagra Afad participated in LAKME FASHION WEEK
We glad to share an achievement by our member Aagor Daagra Aafad for their contribution and participation in LAKME FASHION WEEK – 2016 held on 25th August at St. Regis Hotel, Mumbai.
We congratulate our member, based in Assam for their participation and for showcasing the fashionable products from the bodo tribe.
This time, with an idea to encourage talent from North East, Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festival 2016 focused on designers from Assam. The designers made their runway debut under the ‘Sustainability and Indian Handlooms’ section.
In contrast, designer Aditi Holani Chandak brought to fore a fuss-free aesthetic with her label ‘Aagor by Ants Craft’ that is working to empower the Bodo tribe. The presentation took place to the strains of flute player Prabin Nath, and opened with eight beautiful black and red Mekhela Chadors. The ensembles were free-flowing and minimal, including long skirts, trousers, scarves and more.
Actress Sarah Jane Dias walked as the showstopper, dressed in a deep brown collared shirt with a shredded maxi skirt with her hair left natural and tied in a half up half down style.
The show befittingly opened the Sustainable Fashion and Indian Textiles Day at the event. The show opened with the traditional Assamese dance form called ‘Sattriya’ that was performed by three young dancers – Nupur, Nikita and Gunjan Talwar–in an upbeat through the collection.
Aagor Daagra Afad is a member of Fair Trade Forum India, based in Assam.
