Designers from Northeast India are making their mark and hitting their targets on the dot. Basing their footprint around the world, Arunachal Pradesh born designer Nixon Bui presented his first full collection ‘Urban Tribal’ at Copenhagen, Denmark.
NIXONBUI is a ready-to-wear menswear brand founded in 2014, based in Copenhagen selected to present at the show, was chosen due its originality and focus on sustainable fashion.
The week-long show at Copenhagen Business School focussed on sustainable fashion and NIXONBUI, a Copenhagen-based ready-to-wear menswear line, was the only such brand to be presented.
Giving a more indigenous outlook towards the fashion show, Nixon Bui has showcased modern classical wear in urban setting with tribal details.
The brand, founded in 2014, draws heavily on tribal motifs. The tribal inspirations are not only reflected in the designs, but also in the values of the company which recognizes and respects the forces of nature and advocates quality and originality. A native of the Tagin tribe of Arunachal, Bui blends ancient tribal and minimalistic Scandinavian elements in his work. The essence of the brand can be described as an urban expression of tribal energy, implementing the tribal philosophy into the modern world.
Bui’s pilot collection displayed T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, pants, and caps. Twenty-one unique pieces inspired by the tribal lifestyle of the northeast were showcased.
In a press release, Nixon said, “The Green Week runway show was a great opportunity for us to show our brand, and also show Copenhagen what we are about. And the response has been great! What I am most happy about is that I am able to represent Northeast India to the Western world. And it’s amazing to see how curious people are about my heritage and they want to know more about it. That’s already an achievement for me.”
