SHILLONG, May 8 � Meghalaya-based designer, Daniel Syiem, whose unique �Ryndia� collections are a big hit in the fashion world, will showcase his latest designs at the Toronto fashion festival in Canada tomorrow.
�I am excited for the show in Toronto. I am proud of the new Ryndia collections,� Syiem said.
The Ryndia collections are unique because they are all sourced from a community in remote Ri-Bhoi district of Meghalaya, where the women hand-weaved the fabrics on loom for generations.
The event at the International Fashion Encounter in Toronto will be the fourth show of the city-based designer in venues across the world alongside top designers from the country.
Last year, the young designer had his collections displayed by international models in the second Global Meeting of Indigenous Peoples Forum at Rome, the Fashion International, the London Fashion Week and the New York-based Couture Fashion Week.
An upbeat Daniel said he is proud to be taking the unique fabric of the tribal Khasis centrestage in the fashion arena in Canada, where top-notch designers from the country and the world are also participating. � PTI
