“The patterns applied by Imchen for his fashion designs seem to have been chosen with a solid feeling of respect for traditional rights, a good knowledge of customs, and with great sensitivity regarding possible conflicts.” 

Marion Wettstein, Naga Textiles, Vienna, Arnoldsche Art Publishers, Stuttgart. 2014

“Imcha Imchen has the best version of the quirky man-hat that I have ever seen.”

Abe Gurko, imeanwhat, LA

“The story from Nagaland – Boy Interrupted – was an eye opener for me. I had no idea that fashion in the North East is such a strong language of expression which combines tribal history, scars of insurgency, clannish beliefs, class constructs, and the contemporary relationship with ‘mainland’ India. Imcha Imchen, the protagonist of this chapter provoked a lot of reflection in me as a writer.”

Shefalee Vasudev, The Powder Room, Elle India August 2012

“Imcha has made an indelible mark with his originality and unique tribal connotations. He is one of the rare few who remains grounded and rooted in his sense of self.”

Mona Lalwani, Platform Magazine India

“Inspired by his home state, Nagaland, Imcha Imchen showed a collection that was respectful of his heritage.”

Jasmeen Dugal, Vogue India, 2010
