A moment of pride has arrived for Darjeeling yet again, and this time in a fashionable manner. Darjeeling girl Priyanka Ella Lorena Lama, is one of the young fashion designers to be chosen to showcase her designs in the upcoming Lakme Fashion Week Mumbai, a prestigious style event..
Daughter of Latshering and Anjali Lama, Priyanka completed her primary education from Bethany School and later went to Loreto Convent. While imbibing designing as part of her life right from her school days, her passion took a professional turn when she decided to join National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Bangalore. She has not looked back since then. The 25 yr old designer is also donning the hat of a young woman entrepreneur after starting her own label p.e.l.l.a, an acronym of her name in 2012.
On being asked about her preparation for the event, the elated designer said “My debut collection is the interpretation of an emotional experience. There is an indirect influence of Zen Buddhism which arises from the meditation that I   started in school and still continue to do. For one of my forthcoming collections, I do intend to incorporate elements of the Gorkha way of life”.
“For the long run, I would like to integrate the social value chain into Fashion, and help revive art and culture from the hills and work with the local cottage industries to bring our heritage to the rest of the world” she added.
The Lakme Fashion Week Mumbai is slated to be held from March 12 to 14. Now entering its second decade, the event is jointly organized by the number one Indian cosmetics and beauty brand Lakme and IMG Fashion. The show sets out to redefine the future of fashion and integrate India into the global scene. Featuring top international designers as well as the best home-grown talent, this couture extravaganza, which goes on for nearly a week, is organized twice annually with events in the spring/summer and autumn/winter.
