EASTERN MIRROR: Why did you decide to become a fashion designer?
PIKETO ZHIMOMI: I had a passion for designing and creating new ideas with any bits and pieces that I could lay my hands on since my childhood and got myself inspiring others through art works. Then I realized my flair with scissors, needle and thread. There was no looking back and as such I took up designing as my profession.

EASTERN MIRROR: What were the first steps you took in the world of fashion?
PIKETO ZHIMOMI: Altering my clothes with my mom’s sewing machine was my first experience which led to another thing and taking up fashion designing course professionally gave wings to my entry into the fashion world.

EASTERN MIRROR: What are the concepts that most interest you?
PIKETO ZHIMOMI: Concepts on waste and junk materials.

EASTERN MIRROR: What’s the problem in Nagaland for designers?
PIKETO ZHIMOMI: Lack of industries, institutions, exposure, competitions, funding and support.

EASTERN MIRROR: What do you think should be done in Nagaland to promote the sector?
PIKETO ZHIMOMI: Opening up industries and organizing shows like those singing competitions, having a Nagaland fashion week to promote inspiring designers and most of all for the General public to let them know more about fashion Industry and gain support from them.

EASTERN MIRROR: Which is the fashion trend that will never go out of style? Fashion blunder that Naga’s make?
PIKETO ZHIMOMI: White tee and denim jeans will always be chic. Brands and label craze-there is nothing wrong in being a label enthusiast but invest in a garment because you love about-the color, fabric and most importantly make sure it ‘suits’ and ‘fit’ and not just because of name tag.

EASTERN MIRROR: Future projects for Piketo?
PIKETO ZHIMOMI: I want to compete and participate in the fashion world globally and want to start my own brand after I make a name for myself. I’m also planning to open a small but nice boutique out here in Nagaland.
