ABOUT HIS WORK
Daniel is a self taught designer who is based in Shillong. He started the Daniel Syiem’s Ethnic Fashion House with his friend Janessaline Pyngrope (who is the Business Head) about 6 years ago.
They started the Fashion House with the main objective of promoting textiles and handlooms of the Northeast India, particularly Meghalaya.
Another objective of the fashion house is to use Fashion as a platform to give the outside world a chance to peak into our culture and tradition.
Keeping this in mind, Daniel and his team has been working with the weavers of Ri bhoi district here in Meghalaya and promoting their fabric called the Ryndia.
Over the years they have come up with numerous collections out of the Ryndia and showcased their creations at some of the most prestigious fashion platforms across the world. From New York to London, Toronto, Rome, Singapore and back here in India, the response towards the collections and the Ryndia has been overwhelming. Besides the Fashion weeks, they are almost among the first design houses to have been invited to share their story and their work at IFFAD, Rome, The Nehru Centre in London and also the World Intellectual Property Organisation (UN) in Geneva.
Recently they were invited by Smriti Irani, National Textile Minister to display their work at the Textiles India 2017 in Gandhinagar. Daniel and his team shared the platform with 30 of India’s top designers.
