The third season of North East India Fashion Weekend aims to showcase fashion from the region as well as neighbouring countries.

“We have invited and received confirmation from designers from many foreign countries,” said Prasantt Ghosh, a fashion designer on the event’s Advisory Panel. “It is a landmark event in the sense that the North East will be the latest fashion destination for all designers of the neighbouring regions."

The fashion weekend, sponsored by Big Bazaar, will hold its final round of model auditions on January 14. A total of 36 designers India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Bhutan are scheduled to showcase collections over the course of the two day event.

‘‘It’s not just about fashion,’’ said Ghosh. ‘‘The fashion week is a platform to showcase upcoming designers and discover new talents. It is a professionally managed show, with top models being flown in to present the creations.  It has potential for fashion trade and will give youngsters the opening they need to make an impression in the market."

Along with runway shows, an advisory panel has been put together to mentor young designers taking part in the show. The panel includes Ghosh, Sanjay Choudhury, Kanchan More Sabharwal, and Kuntanil Das. Well known designers from across India will also participate in the event and Hemant Trevedi, Mona Pali, Abhishek Dutta, and James Fariera are all confirmed for the show.
