Global award for state designer

Bhubaneswar, Nov. 4: Fashion designer Pritam Panda, who had represented the country at the World Chopard Young Entrepreneur Award 2010, became the youngest entrepreneur to win an award in the design and art category of entrepreneurship in the event. The award ceremony was held in Dubai on Wednesday.

Panda, who was born and brought up in Balasore, was nominated along with four other entrepreneurs in the same category from countries such as China, United Kingdom and Finland.

Since 1998, the event has been held annually.

The 28-year-old designer runs the VKY House of Fashion and has around 500 clients around the world. Within a span of one year, his creations have become a huge hit in places such as Paris, UK, Middle East and India.

Winning the award was an exciting and unbelievable experience, said the young designer.

“It’s a real pride for me to represent the country and my state,” said Panda.

“The award would, I’m sure, help me in further doing my work and preserve the remote textile and weaving community of the state and promote the art among the fashion circles across the world,” Panda stated in an e-mail communication to The Telegraph. “I cannot explain how it feels when your work is acknowledged, named and sashayed with the tag of India,” he said.

The fashion designer works on patterns and textiles such as, tussar, paata, ikkat baandha and Bengal’s kantha handloom.

Panda completed his training in fashion designing from Calcutta’s Bhowanipore Education Society College.

He specialises in couture collections and has an experience of 15 seasons in the fashion industry.
