street fashion mizoram india

Tell me something about yourself.
I am pretty sure I am 5 feet tall. I was born and raised in Shillong and moved to Delhi for further studies. That’s when I realised how tiny I was. I like big curly hair, hiking, and Girls.

How would you describe your style?
I think I’m very laid back in my dressing, I got that from Shillong. People in Aizawl dress up a lot and I’m not really influenced by it.

What are you currently listening to?
Machu Picchu by The Strokes. Leave the Lights On by Meiko – Culture Code remix. Magic by Coldplay.

mizoram people fashion style delhi

What kind of fashion do you like and what shows did you watch at fashion week?
Van: I like a bit grungy type of outfits. I went to see just one show so I don’t know what I like this fashion week. Atsu was quite alright I guess but I didn’t see the show.
Sang: I love all kinds of style — boho, chic, feminine, goth, but I usually like dressing up in a simple, understated way. I love embroidery work. I’ve been a fan of Gauri and Nainika for a long time and I also love the concept of Pero by Aneeth Arora.

Do you have any fashion icons?
Van: The Kills. Pete Doherty.
Sang: No, not exactly. I used to love the model Kate Moss for her style but maybe not anymore.

What kind of music do you like and what are you currently listening to?
Van: Lots of Sia and MIA. I love MIA. She is so innovative with both fashion and music.
Sang: I love Mark Knopfler a lot and my all time favourite band is Dire Straits. Growing up with three elder brothers made me love all the 80s & 90s rock bands. Currently I’m listening to Ane Brun’s version of Halo on repeat.

Fashion week, Delhi. October 2014.

fashion northeast india nagaland

Lozano likes orchids, teapots, long walks, and Céline. 

Are you materialistic?
I used to be.

How did you get interested in fashion?
Growing up I was surrounded by aunts and relatives who were always well dressed. They would go outside Nagaland just to shop. Living outside in cities was a rarity then but they’d go to the extents of getting the best of clothes, shoes, jewellery. When you are surrounded by so many beautiful people I think it gets rubbed off onto your personality as well.  I think our taste in fashion start developing early when we are exposed to beautiful mekhlas and chadors. At a young age, we are in tune with colours, mixing prints, blending attires. It’s like a part of our culture and tradition.

Do you have a favourite memory from your childhood?
I remember I would chase dragon flies…climb up trees and dream I was floating.

How was your childhood like?
Lonely. I was very lonely as a child. And free. And I was hungry all the time. Lonely. But happy.

What are you currently listening to?
Red lights by Tiesto.

How would you describe yourself?
I am a simple girl who loves colours and vintage things.

December 2013. Kohima, Nagaland.

ladakhi woman fashion bok

“Bok is a colourful shawl worn for warmth and protection on the back. Traditionally it used to have a bright design on the outside and yak or goat skin on the inside to keep the wearer warm. This has now been changed by fashion to a simple ornament of brightly coloured material although in winter many women still wear goat skin to keep warm.”

July 2014. Leh, Ladakh.
