“Fashion does not have limitation there is no holiday for fashion, everyday it keeps changing so I want to do like summer collection, winter collection every season I want to do my collection’ ’says Bung.
Bung is the man behind the Bung by Bung Winter Collections which was showcased last winter at Hotel Nirmala. Over 12 models participated in the showcased and the response from the audience seems quite incredible.
Bung is a glamorous fashion designer and well known male designer from Imphal, Manipur. It’s been about ten years that he has been designing. A fashion designer who worked and experienced from Delhi and Shillong now back to his lovely hometown Imphal with the intention to promote his collections and to promote the society as a whole into better fashion society. Wrap round, ethnic wear, handicrafts, embroidery are his latest crazes. Apart from them he also designs regular clothes specified for pregnant women. Unlike others most people can wear his designs from regular to custom. His newly designed clothes are also ready to showcase and will be available in the market shortly. He designed some casual which also suits for working people. He also designed gowns which he especially made for the Christian wedding. ‘There are different customs in our society; we have Manipuri’s, tribals, etc. the customs differ from each other. So, to satisfy the requirement of the differences he created some new designs quite specific to the differences says Bung.
He has done Extravaganza at Shillong Fashion week which was organized by the government of Meghalaya. He also did Boimon Collection, and Manipur Fashion week to experience the tastes of different other collections too.
Fashion design is influenced by cultural and social latitudes, and has varied over time and place. His fashion designs work in a number of ways in designing clothing and accessories. He is determined and works consistently. His attempt to satisfy consumer for aesthetically designed clothing can now somehow proved him.
Because of the time required to bring a garment onto the market, he is well aware and his anticipation about changing consumer tastes and he attempts to design clothes which are functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. He specifically considers who is likely to wear a garment and the situations in which it will be suited or worn. The wide range and combinations of materials to work with and a wide range of colors, patterns and styles to choose from seems to be all time decision for a designer.
