Nixon Bui is the founder and creative director of fashion label NIXONBUI. The label is inspired from the lifestyles and perspectives of the tribal communities of Northeast India. He was invited to Copenhagen Business School to share his experiences with the young business students.
Apart from talking about the practicalities and hardships of starting one’s own company, Nixon also shared stories of his homeland Arunachal, the unique cultural diversity of Northeast India and the beauty in the way of life adopted by the tribal people.
‘I have always said, for me NIXONBUI has never particularly been about cultural preservation but more sort of embracing my own identity. This is my heritage and I will proudly carry it along wherever I go,’ he shared. His talk at the business school made the young students very curious to know more about the lesser known region of India.
Nixon has been running his start-up for two years now and he has received a lot of positive feedback and recognition for his work. He is now on the verge of expanding his business and will soon enter the Indian market. ‘We are super excited about our entry to Indian market. I always wanted to show my work to friends and fans back home, and now it’s happening. We are doing our best to make it successful.’
