Indian handlooms have found a strong support in the high-end fashion apparel category, owing to strong promotional strategies and schemes formulated by the Ministry of Textiles, Government of India. The same was also witnessed recently during the Handloom Week, which was held last December and it will continue to be a yearly event.

This was a handloom event organized across India by an Assamese domestic organisation, North East Institute of Fashion and Technology (NEIFT).

It is because of the tremendous response that, they had received at varied platforms; NEIFT is intending to celebrate North East Handloom Festival 2010, in July. As per Vikram Rai Medhi, CEO, NEIFT, this event will provide a platform of huge potentials for the domestic designers, craftsmen and weavers to display their talent.

Medhi also informed that, by virtue of this event, conventional users will be able to communicate with the new genre of designers and commence a fashion revolution with their minute patterns and rich weaves, across both global and national fashion markets.

Fashion capital of North-East Guwahati will be witnessing the fashion show on July 21 at hotel Landmark with Nabam Tuki, Minister of PWD and Urban Development, Government of Arunachal Pradesh as the chief guest.

As for the fashion show, along with famous Indian models, international models from Slovakia, Poland, Uruguay and the like will be also be seen.

Dimapur and Itanagar are the next destinations. Fashion experts will be seen waiting eagerly to mix in the colours of Indian handlooms, which is mostly going to be a kaleidoscope of North-East weavers.
