Guwahati girl bags four national awards in 2018


People of Assam continue to bring more laurels to the State as a young and aspirant interior designer from Guwahati quietly bagged four national awards in a span of just 10 months for her breathtaking work in 2018.

Karishma Kakoti, a resident of Rajgarh in Guwahati, recently was conferred with the ‘Young Female Entrepreneur of Northeast In Interior Designing” title at the India Leadership Awards 2018 in Bangalore. She received the award at a glittering ceremony in Bangalore from Bollywood actress Soha Ali Khan.


Kakoti, founder and owner of KA Design – a leading interior design firm dealing with the high end luxury projects from residential, commercial and hospitality sector all over India, is not new to national recognition as this followed after winning three national awards previously. Her first National award came in January this year at the India’s Most Prominent Architect and Design Awards 2018 by Merit Awards and Market Research. She clinched the award for ‘The Leading Interior Design Firm In Guwahati’ for her firm KA Design.

This began an unstoppable run of recognition and awards at the national level for this hard working and extremely passionate 26-year old Assamese girl. She followed it up with by securing the ‘Design Divas Season 2’ recognition presented by Decawood.

Her one of the most notable moments came during the National Icon Awards 2018-19 where she was presented with the award for ‘Most Innovative and Consultancy Firm In Guwahati’ by ace Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty.

Apart from National awards, her hometown has not been left behind from recognizing her talent. Along with many other regional awards, she received the much acclaimed ‘Byatikram Youth Icon Award’ in August this year in Guwahati from legendary Bollywood and Ghazal singer Pankaj Udhas.

At a time when people like Hima Das and Rima Das are making the State proud and bringing an end to all stereotypes by leading their way to success, women like Karishma Kakoti sets an example for many budding and talented people of the region who dare to dream and make all the necessary noise that can’t be unheard across borders.

It has just begun for Karishma and her firm – KA Design – as they continue to shine even brighter.

We from Pratidin Time wish her all the success for the future.
