Assam daughter Manjushree Saikia’s label ‘Ura Maku’ grabbed the attention on the first day of Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019 edition. Saikia unveiled her “Dawn to Reality” collection at the festival.
Manjushree’s collection included handwoven Eri, Mulberry Silk from Assam and Chanderi tissue combined into timeless tailored silhouettes that was a fashionable amalgamation. She feels that the Indian fashion scene is much more responsible towards Indian textiles and crafts.
She was one of the six selected designers, who presented their creations at the Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019 edition. Being selected for the Gen Next Designer program is like a dream come true for all aspiring designers.
Manjushree is a Textile Design graduate from NIFT, Mumbai. She hails from Lakhimpur district.
