The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) will showcase the pride of Assam with a show dedicated to what the queen of textiles - muga silk at the Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) Autumn-Winter’17. FDCI’s designers Samant Chauhan, who has already done a show in Shillong to promote and preserve muga silk, will present his collection at AIFW.

In keeping with its commitment to the ‘Make in India’ campaign, the FDCI is all set to transform the runway with a pleasing blend of luxe and tradition of this famed golden thread at an offsite venue - National Rail Museum in Delhi. The offsite show will be held on the day two of the four-day fashion extravaganza, to be held from March 15-18, said FDCI in a press release.

"Muga silk is known for its durability and uninhibited gloss and this edition through our association with ‘Golden Threads of Assam’ we are relooking at telling a tale of Indian textile by reviving lost heritage. Samant will enliven muga silk by giving it an edgy flavour yet maintain its innate strength of texture. We applaud Riniki Bhuyan Sharma's efforts for her selfless contribution to the cause of Assamese weavers," said Sunil Sethi, president, FDCI.

"With a vision to promote and preserve muga culture, 'Golden Threads of Assam' is a one-of-its-kind venture that will depict that this ancient craft and contemporary aesthetics can co-exist. We, as a team, endeavour to preserve, protect and promote muga’s purity to take the loom to the ramp and catapult it to the ramps to the world," said Riniki Bhuyan Sharma, president, Golden Threads of Assam.

The North-eastern state of Assam has been producing the royal silk and the weavers have been an intrinsic part of the national identity offering handlooms with an inbuilt shimmer. This is an earnest attempt to safeguard the Assamese legacy and its fabulous and celebrated craftsmanship. (KD)
