“I feel like an alien in this town. I love badgalriri. I’m a thinker. I spend my days playing video games, going for drives to the hills, working out, listening to reggae, hanging at The Warehouse. Sometimes I go to the Church.”

“I’m awkward and quiet at times but I do the stupidest random shit when I get comfortable with someone. I am usually hanging out at my studio. I am currently listening to Don’t Leave by Mo. I like black, jogging pants, sleepovers, and feeling loved. My style inspiration is Gwen Stefani.”

“I am a Fashion Designer by profession but if I wasn’t one I’d be an anthropologist or working at a wildlife sanctuary.”

What do you like best about where you live?
I take pride in our culture, our roots, our heritage. Otherwise Dimapur is a small town – comfortable and slow.

Give me a list of things you love.
Porcelain dolls. Machu Pichu. Summer. Sea. Volleyball. Anthropology. Coconuts. Swinghop. Prawns.

Tell me something about yourself.
I’m a science student and just an everyday girl who loves reading, food, and clothes.

Do you have a favorite book and what are you currently reading?
I read mostly bad boy stories from Wattpad. So no favourites really.
Currently reading ‘I sold myself to the devil for Vinyls, Pitiful I know’. It’s not as cliché as it sounds.

Are there any words or phrases that you use the most?
‘Oh my God!’, ‘Like seriously?’ I gasp at almost everything.

What’s the best part about your life in Kohima?
The weather!

Where are you from?
We are from Dimapur, Nagaland.

What do you do?
Pur: Freelance interior decorator & event planner
Asano: I am a graphic designer & an entrepreneur.

What’s your favorite word?
P: Effervescent- I don’t know why!
A: Mush.

How would you describe your style?
P: Comfort & functional. Don’t know if theres a word for that. I wear what I feel like everyday.
A: A mix of classic and trendy I guess. I like some trendy styles but need them in black or white. That, and a bit of gold accessories. I say “a bit”, people say “a lot”.

Do you have any fashion icons?
P: No.
A: None, really. Maybe I lean towards what K-pop artistes wear.

What’s the best part about your life in Dimapur?
P: Family & friends. I cannot function without them.
A: The best part would be the security. I’m around family, friends, and working in the place I grew up and that familiarity is reassuring.

What song/band are you currently listening to?
P: I’m listening to a lot of K-pop lately like Big Bang, 2ne1. Bits of Tori kelly and Leroy Sanchez.
A: What Do You Mean? by Justin Bieber. Oriental Dream by Shalo Kent. (It’s not released yet.)

What was your last weekend like?
P: I don’t remember much. My head hurts thinking about it.
A: Work filled. Decorated a Ninja themed party and worked on a magazine design till 3 am.

What places do you recommend to hang at in Dimapur?
P: Upstairs for drinks & Tom Yum Goong for food- the chicken wings & liver chilly is amazing.
A: There’s not much to do but after dark – Upstairs and Hooligans.
