Krishna Mehta will present her distinct creations, all enriched by weaving techniques, at the upcoming Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Winter-Festive 2013, that will take place from the 23rd to the 27th of August at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Mumbai. Her new collection was especially crafted by weavers in Imphal, the capital of Manipur, in collaboration with the Manipur government's department of commerce and industries.
In Mehta’s words, "My fusion line has a distinct blend of Manipur's art and culture and I'm eager to present their amazing work for the world to see”. Accordingly, Govindas Konthoujam, Manipur's minister for commerce and industries, has reported that "Her creations using rich Manipuri handloom fabrics are expected to provide an opportunity for the other designers to take notice of the rich cultural heritage of Manipur". Hopefully this new-born collaboration will help bringing the Manipur handloom into mainstream fashion as never happened in the past.
