On this day two years ago, Temsusenla Kichu launched her clothing boutique Fusion Store at Hotel Acacia Complex, Dimapur, that caters only to exclusive products of local designers and startups.
The business steadily picked up with a strong base of dedicated customers ranging from the demographic age of 16-30 years. Her unique enterprising set of modules also earned a reputation for providing an opportunity for emerging home-grown designers to craft out their products and make a decent livelihood by selling them at her outlet.
“It’s not that easy doing business in Nagaland. It’s even more challenging for a woman. But I am glad there are phenomenal women like Temsusenla Kichu. Happy 2nd Anniversary,” wrote Zuboni Sekhose Humtsoe, owner of Preciousmelove (PML), on her facebook post today.
Zuboni Sekhose Humtsoe, widely known as the Narendra Modi girl by local media, supplies her popular selling Nungshiba Dolls for the store too.
Temsusenla Kichu narrated about her entrepreneurship journey to Morung Express, “I worked part-time at a Medical store while still in high school. And later on, I joined a retail store of a reputed denim brand in Dimapur and got promoted to store manager.”
The list of other local brands and startups that have recently partnered with Fusion Store includes Liying, Bevura, Goji Love, Runway and D’ana. It has become a one-stop destination to get the latest locally made accessories and collections of Women and Menswear.
