2002 – 2004
An Established Fashion Voice
2002 finds the designer writing for the Nepali Women’s Magazine ‘Nari’ as a way to educate the general public about the impact and importance of fashion using her creativity and growing popularity for the greater good. Her appointment as the official designer & fashion design mentor for Miss Nepal 2002, creates an incredible buzz around her brand and finds the designer with a strong vision about the business profile of her brand.
In 2003, her love for ethics is growing stronger, and by that time she volunteers for WWF World Wildlife Fund in Nepal, she has a first hand experience of realising the harsh cruelty of the fashion world to the endangered animal and its natural habitat. It is then that Sanyukta introduces her Fur Free Fashion show designed to educate the media and consumers to consider ecological diversity and community effort to protect endangered species.
As her Country’s well-established fashion designer, mentor and columnist, Sanyukta joins the Judging Panel of “Miss Nepal Beauty Pageant 2003”. At the height of her career, she was again appointed as official designer for Miss Nepal Beauty Pageant 2004 and Miss Nepal for Miss World, Miss Asia Pacific and Miss Earth 2004. Same year, she introduced her ‘Fashion is Art’ Fashion show in Nepal, advocating for the importance of Art, Craft, cultural heritage and religious amalgamation for peace through fashion.
