Nagaland Through My Eyes - Sibling Style with Sakune & Ashibu Nienu^

Saturday, January 07, 2017

There are so many stylish women and girls around me all the time and this is especially true in Nagaland. In Kohima, I can spend hours checking out beautiful people going about their daily businesses looking like they just popped out of a style magazine and I am especially glad to call many of these stylish people my friends. Two of the most stunningly well turned out ladies I know are sisters from Nagaland and I'm delighted to share their style story with you all. They are Ashibu Nienu and Sakune Nienu, both with a distinct style of their own and always perfectly dressed up or down. Ashi has a Degree in Fashion Design while Sakune holds a Degree in Fashion Marketing & Management. Here's a glimpse of our chitchat at their Jotsoma home on a chilly January afternoon, looking cheery in their winter layers. We had a great deal of fun exploring the new #swagphonehonor6x

Thoughts on eco friendly recycled fashion?
We're not exactly who you would call tree-huggers but being the new millennial generation, we feel the need to be aware of the ethical practices about where what we wear comes from and how.
Change is always hard for everyone. But a little effort every now and then goes a long way. 🌱🍃
Hair and skin care routine?
Changing your shampoos & conditioners occasionally helps. 
And we cannot stress enough the importance of SUNBLOCK!!!😎
Your style challenges and how you tackle them?
If you travel around India, you'd know that it let's you experience the entire weather forecast in 24 hrs.
It's everybody’s worst nightmare to pack and dress for such unpredictable weather.
But inspiration comes from challenges.😬

At the end of the day, "Your phone is a keeper," says Sakune. "Amazing Camera."
"Thanks," I say. I'm so glad its mine, I tell myself.
