I bring to you the exclusive coverage of Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week SS 13.  Day 1, Part 2 Atsu Sekhose SS 2013 Bringing to fore his love for North East is Atsu Sekhose’s Spring Summer 2013 collection.  The designer has gravitated towards the tribes of North East as the chief inspiration this season.  Having his roots in Nagaland, he has been chosen by the Ministry of Textiles to present a collection that is evocative of the northeastern culture. His strength as a mixologist comes through in the constructions made of hand woven fabrics moulded into a collection inspired by American sportswear.   Every look emphasizes the honed body through Naga fabrics like cotton and silk, woven by 30 underprivileged women from a women’s weaving organization –  VITOLE  and Assamese Silk exclusively woven by Assamese weavers.   The contemporary collection opens with shorts, parka jackets, trench jackets, trousers and shirts making way for dresses and evening gowns.

Each and every detail has been well examined to go along with the collection, hence rejuvenating the beauty, style, art, craft, music and richness of North East.
