MUMBAI, AUG 27: Northeast hailed the success of it’s another daughter, Meriya Subba from Namchi, Sikkim, as she graced the ramp of Lakme Fashion Week 2016. Meriya, who won the coveted title of Sunsilk Mega Miss North East earlier this year, had won an opportunity to walk the ramp of the country’s biggest fashion extravaganza Lakmé Fashion Week for Reliance Trends in Mumbai.
Day three at the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 2016, ended with a collection presented by Reliance Trends, which has now changed to trends, by Delhi’s popular designer, Rajesh Pratap Singh. Meriya looked no less than a diva adorning a design from Rajesh’s collection ‘The Punjabi Suit’ on ramp. The show offered Meriya an opportunity to share the ramp with various established models and Bollywood superstars including Jacqueline Fernandez who was the showstopper for the Trends collection last evening.
Meriya Subba was crowned the 14th Sunsilk Mega Miss North East in a glittering ceremony held at Guwahati in June this year. 18-year-old Meriya is the third young woman from Sikkim to take home the Sunsilk Mega Miss North East crown.
Meriya, whose parents are school teachers, said that she must thank the people of northeast for the support and specially her family members who supported her throughout her life. “Walking the ramp at Lakme Fashion Week was an experience I won’t ever forget. I was nervous and excited at the same time. But once I was on the ramp, I felt – this is a dream come true and I have to give my best. I owe my success to my parents and mentors. Special thanks to Mega Entertainment, and especially Abhijeet Singha, for helping me live my fairytale. Mega Miss North East has given me this platform and I will always cherish this…,” said Meriya.-By Our Reporter
