Something for everyone

On display was everything, required to satiate the cravings of someone, with a keen eye for detail. ‘Paraphernalia’, the day-long exhibition, held at Vivanta by Taj, had the best range of products in premium fashion, design, art, lifestyle and accessories. The exhibition offered the perfect platform for young designers to showcase their products.

The best of labels such as Gayatri Chopra, July, Masterkitchen, Shimmer Shack, Crescent Silver, Holycow and Rishuli footwear were brought under one roof. And the products comprised beautiful box clutches with Indian weaves and contemporary designs, colourful and chic ethnic garments, as well as modern contemporary wear. There was also a wide range of exclusive neckpieces and bracelets, accessories and shoes. Not to forget the attractive range of kitchenware and tableware products, bathroom accessories, office and desk essentials, which were unique.

Shilpa Rao, a shopper, felt that the products on display were not only high-end but truly enviable in terms of their quality and pricing. “You normally find such things on display at popular shopping complexes but here you have something for everyone and for all age groups. I really liked the accessories’ slot and I did pick up one or two clutches and something for my children as well,” says Shilpa. 
Rui Shah, an entrepreneur and fashion designer, says, “There’s a lot of funky jewellery and footwear on show. The designs are very modern. Something similar would cost you more in the market. The kitchenware section has some really interesting stuff. Such initiatives are few and far between.”

Rakesh Prakash decided to check out the stuff simply because he happened to be at the venue at that time. “The items are mostly for women but I did see one or two things which I like, for instance the wall hangers and kitchenware. I regret not bringing my wife along,” he beams.

Divya Gupta, the organiser of the event, says, “Bangalore is quintessentially a city with varied cultures, choice and talents. What the City lacks is options in fashion labels. Our vision is to promote the event among people seeking high-end fashion and provide a platform for up-and-coming designers and entrepreneurs.”

Kannada actress Ramya Barna inaugurated the exhibition.
