Designer Sanjukta Dutta said: “Sometimes GOD gifts are far beyond our wildest dreams. I and my artisans feel so fortunate to be blessed by the universe to get such wonderful opportunities to see the Assam Handloom making its special place on the global map, as it’s rare that you see a regional drape / fashion reaching a global platform”.
Mr. Debashis Chakraborty , First Secretary, Indian Embassy of India, France & Principality of Monaco was also present at the show to support the acclaimed designer from India. After witnessing Sanjukta’s show he said, “At Paris Fashion Week, we saw a lot of incredible fashion.
But what made a lasting impression on me was the work done by Indian designer Sanjukta Dutta. Indian fashion mostly speaks about two things: simplicity & opulence and its handwoven fabrics and she has portrayed just that through her designs at Paris Fashion Week.
She has beautifully woven women empowerment into her designs by showcasing prints of Indian goddesses which is very unique and quintessential to our society as an honor to the women.
Sanjukta has done a fabulous work by infusing the traditional culture in a modern style with great colours & prints and the right use of colour especially red. Sanjukta Dutta has truly brought Indian fashion to the world: by infusing it with cutting-edge design and making sure that it was always true to its roots. I hope more designers Like Sanjukta make a traditionally fashionable mark on the global map.” he added.
Sanjukta Dutta was the first Assamese woman designer to showcase her collection at the Lakme Fashion Week and it was never looking back from there. She has already made her mark in the fashion industry with her participation in the top know fashion shows in India and globally like the Lakme Fashion Week, FDCI , London Fashion Week etc .
