A woman fashion designer from a village in West Bengal’s Hooghly district has designed a dress for British Queen Camilla and a brooch for King Charles III.
And received a letter from the Royal family thanking her and inviting her to attend the coronation ceremony on Saturday.
The 29-year-old fashion designer, Priyanka Mallick, hopes that the king and the queen will wear the brooch and the dress.
“It was an incredible feeling when I came to know that the queen and the king appreciated my designs of the dress and brooch.
“When I received the letter of appreciation, I was thrilled. One email or letter from Buckingham Palace means a lot more to me,” Mallick told PTI.
Malick is a resident of Badinan village. Some 12 km away from Singur railway station in Hooghly district.
Though she has received the invitation to attend the coronation ceremony. She will not be there as her health would not permit her to do so.
The British Deputy High Commission in Kolkata will organize a function on Saturday evening to mark the occasion, which she may attend.
She had approached the representatives of the Royal family earlier and expressed her wish to design a dress for the Queen Camila. She sent the design, and they liked it, following which she got the letter of appreciation.
On the flip side, Mallick said, nobody from the village congratulates
