Dress to Impress
What we wear defines who we are! The fashion industry undergoes maximum shifts in regards to trends and we must confess, it’s hard to keep up. Rojina Maharjan brings some upcoming designs for 2016 from fresh fashion designers in the industry:
Who would you want to see flaunting your designs?
Astha Pokharel — the perfect supermodel for me and Kate Middleton because she has an amazing personality! I would love to design a ceremonial dress for her.
What sets you apart from other fashion designers today?
I prioritise comfort and that’s what sets me apart. And, I love colours and inculcate different hues in my designs.
You aspire to become?
Coco Channel and revolutionise fashion.
Designer Sonu Shrestha has showcased her designs in runways and various fashion shows. Her designs are inspired from vibrant colours and from women who express themselves through their clothes.

overall feminine feel.
