Guwahati: With distinctive designs and collections, Assam’s well-known fashion designer Sanjukta Dutta has once again taken Assam’s golden muga and mulberry silk to a global platform.
Models sashayed down the ramp in New York Fashion Week 2022, donning Sanjukta’s haute-couture collections.
Her collection entitled ‘Alful’, an eclectic mix of modern and contemporary designs, have been appreciated on a global scale.
The fashion designer has made enormous contributions to the fields of fashion and design using Assam’s traditional fabric, creating an exuberant look.
She has an eye for creativity and knows well to turn the traditional ensemble into a contemporary drape.
Sanjukta Dutta has resurrected the Assamese handicraft industry by empowering rural artisans.
She combines the traditions and prints of various cultures into a one-of-a-kind customised garment, with the Assamese silk ‘mekhela chador’ serving as the base in most cases.
Bollywood actors Priyanka Chopra, Bipasha Basu, Hema Malini, Zareen Khan, Preity Zinta, and Tabu, among others, have worn her designs in the past.
She has also received the prestigious Dada Saheb Phalke Excellence Awards 2018 in the category of “Best fashion designer” of the year last year.
