Fashion Is Self Expression

Nidhi has always been passionate about fashion design. She is a final year student of Bachelors in Fashion Design at Namuna College of Fashion. Her first show at the Haute Couture Fashion Fiesta was a big success and she won the title of Designer of the Year 2017. She credits her education for her success. Meanwhile she is using every opportunity to showcase her work at the frequent fashion shows that happen in the capital.

What is fashion for you?

Fashion is a medium to express your identity. Using clothes, a way to tell the world about who you are. For some people, it is just clothing and they dress only for comfort. But for me it is an art. For the wearer, it should not be just about the brand or where it came from; it’s a form of self expression. For the designer it is innovation, expression, imagination and so much more.

What does your design offer to fashion lovers?

Through my designs I want to offer people the feeling of being beautiful and confident.

Your fashion icon/ inspiration?

Prabal Gurung is my fashion icon because being a Nepali the achievement he has gained on an international platform is a huge inspiration for young designers like us.

What is your favourite trend this year?

Off shoulders

…And what would you like to see disappear?

I want chokers and lace-up tops to disappear from the scene.

Describe your ‘I made it moment’.

I worked so hard for Haute Couture Fashion Fiesta since it was my first show. And I was awarded – Designer of the Year 2017. It was a moment of immense pride and realisation that hard work does pays off.
