Guwahati: Leading model and winner of Mrs West Asia Universe and Mrs Universe Fabulous, Amrita Dutta, will be the “Face of Preview” this time as the third season of the event kicked off with an interactive session at Guwahati Institute of Fashion Technology (GIFT), where some of the leading professionals from fashion industry met for one-to-one discussion on the event.
The third season of the event, Preview S3, will be held in the month of June. Designers and models from the industry came in for the interactive session where they had a discussion on crucial aspects of the upcoming show like vision, perspective and awareness. The Preview show, which started out in the year 2017, is eagerly looking forward to its third line-up. This season, the event is aimed at appreciating women’s participation in the handloom sector and recognizing the efforts of the weavers who also pay an equally important role in the process. The founders, designer Paplee Gogoi and Deepjyoti Baishya, have roped in Amrita Dutta, Mrs West Asia Universe and Mrs Universe Fabulous as the “Face of Preview” for this season.
“The interactive session we conducted was to share opinions, ideas about how the Preview event can be made a successful one. Preview is not about quantity, it is about quality. Designers are welcomed to showcase their creations and exhibit at the Preview store we will launch later this year,” said Paplee Gogoi, manager and co-founder, Preview.
“Preview was not conceived as a fashion show, but was conceptualised as a store where upcoming designers and existing designers will be able to exhibit their designs for the audience. There are many designers who cannot afford to open up a boutique, Preview will be platform for them. Before opening up of the store, we decided to conduct a fashion show to let the people know about the concept. This is how the Preview event came into being,” stated Deepjyoti Baishya, co-founder and creative head, Preview.
The interactive session held on Saturday also witnessed the presence of designers like Kamal Lochan Borah, Sangita Kalita, Pratishruti Baruah, Madhumita Sarmah, Ankita Choudhury Mahanta, Moushumi Borah, Kalyani Das and Jahnabi Swargiyari.
