Das will flaunt a creation from Bhuyan's 'Woven Dreams of Assam' collection at the Bridal and Cocktail Wear 2019 show here on March 1.

Das said in a statement: "I was very excited when Tara came to me to be the showstopper for her maiden show in India. Even the outfit which I would be wearing has been chosen by me. It would be an evening gown in muga silk, embellished with Swarovski crystals."

Das's film "Village Rockstars" was India's entry for an Oscar category, but it got out of the race. Her Assamese feature film "Bulbul Can Sing" received a Special Mention recently at the Berlin International Film Festival 2019.
