EASTERN MIRROR: Tell us about yourself. What inspired you to become a fashion designer?
IMTIYALA LONGCHAR: Well….. I have always loved to put into practice my creativity in any bits and pieces that I could lay my hands on. This interest led me to join a fashion institute in Delhi where I could polish my skill. Then I joined for a training programme at the Indian Institute of Entrepreneurship Guwahati.

EASTERN MIRROR: What does your current fashion work focus on?
IMTIYALA LONGCHAR: I do female outfits and now I’m focusing on traditional ethnic motifs, Indian and western outfits.

EASTERN MIRROR: Worst fashion trend of all time?
IMTIYALA LONGCHAR: Not worst fashion trend but worst fashion mix-up according to me would be wearing florescent print Kurtas with nets.

EASTERN MIRROR: One fashion rule according to you, it’s time to break?
IMTIYALA LONGCHAR: I feel it’s high time to break the copying and duplicating tendency.

EASTERN MIRROR: How would you describe your personal fashion style?
IMTIYALA LONGCHAR: My personal style is casual yet elegant and preferably locally sourced created fabrics.

EASTERN MIRROR: Your opinion about Fashion in Nagaland. What changes would you like to see in the fashion industry of Nagaland?
IMTIYALA LONGCHAR: I strongly feel Nagaland requires a textile production centre and quality fabric industry which can easily make materials available for aspiring designers especially so that our state compete with the rest.
