    The 3rd edition of North East India Fashion Week will be inaugurated with pomp and grandeur. Around 50 artisans from all over Northeast have come forward to participate including a designer from Delhi and Philippines.

    Besides that, the three day fashion week will also host scintillating numbers performed by musicians and dancers from different states of the region. This will help to reach out and interact with the crowd in the form of rich folk songs.
