The Taj Group of Hotels may appoint fashion designer Agnimitra Paul for designing uniforms for its employees. The Taj management was impressed with her work showcased in the Lakme Fashion Week last year.

"I am keen on working for hotels and airlines," said Paul, who will tell the tale of kantha at the forthcoming Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) to be held from October 13--17 at the National Centre for Performing Art in Mumbai. Her creations will be showcased on October 16.

Paul, a successful debutante at the LFW last year, said: "I never feel that being born in Bengal is a disadvantage. True, my assignments would have been much bigger if I was born in Mumbai. But, on the other hand, my creations, based on the Bengali heritage, are being showcased all over India. People of other states look at me in a different way."
