EASTERN MIRROR: Tell us about your love for fashion, your career so far and the way you choose to become a fashion?
Muzungchim Yimchunger: I’ve loved fashion since I was very young. I would spend hours watching fashion T.V and reading fashion magazines. And gradually, I started experimenting by stitching motifs and my sister’s dresses and make their accessories. That’s how I started to know fashion and eventually took it as my career.

EASTERN MIRROR: Nationally still Nagaland fashion designers have a long way to go, what according to you can help Nagaland’s fashion industry attain this?
Muzungchim Yimchunger: I Agree , we are still lacking behind as compared to others states when it comes to fashion industry, but we Nagas are no less when it come to talent, creativity and fashion. The designers need plenty of money for production houses.
Fashion shows, advertising and work place. Unfortunately lots of designers struggle a lot and we have no option.
Financial assistance from the government sector can do a lot by boosting our career and helping the Naga fashion industry as well.
