Lakshmi Sujatha Ganguri, student of JD Institute of Fashion Technology, bagged the best Khadi Designer Award at a national level contest organized by the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. She was selected from over 50,000 entries from designers across the country.

The award function was held in Delhi on December 30. Inspired by the Swadeshi movement, 11 of her garments designed on Khadi fabric were selected for the finale. She was among 35 designers who were short-listed in the final round and the only one from the Telugu speaking States.

The award has come as a big boost to the 44-year-old designer who started her journey in the fashion designing world only a year ago.
