When it comes to luxury, Delhiites never miss the chance to savour it. Serendipity Take 4 – a luxury fashion and lifestyle exhibition, recently held at Hotel Vasant Continental, brought together luxury brands like Versace, Missoni, Emillio Pucci and Roberto Cavalli along with dozens of new and creative designer brands under one roof.

Organised by stylist Kashish Gupta, the show delighted the city’s fashionistas who came to the venue in hordes. The one-day event was a themed fashion exhibition where luxury scaled up new dimensions.

With great gusto, visitors binged on couture jewellery, heritage accessories, Indian bridal ensemble, haute silhouettes, flamboyant menswear, kids’ haute couture, artisan home décor, shoe soiree and much more. But the highlight of the show was the two models of luxury car Porsche, positioned at the entrance which greeted the visitors with its swish appeal.

Gupta tells Metrolife, “‘Serendipity’, the word itself means unique. We always try to bring something new to the visitors. For example, Matsya, who are the associate sponsors of this show, had never ever exhibited before. Likewise, we have a different set of exhibitors. There are few newbies who are also participating.”

Kanika Manchanda was an architect by profession till seven months back. But her passion for designing got her into this field. Manchanda, who was displaying her collection of glamorous red-carpet gowns says, “I never took any formal training. It was just that I wanted to try my luck in designing that I got into this field. Talking about Serendipity, it is a great platform for newcomers. The event is getting a huge response. I hope this will grow bigger in its next take.”

The selection of the designers who displayed their creations at the exhibition was made through a panel of 30 experts who decided on the format, form and fashion of the event, and also on the luxury partner’s portfolios and databases.

The expo is set to explore the luxury segments at pan-India level, especially in the cities of Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai, Jaipur, Raipur, Pune, Chandigarh and Coimbatore in the coming years.

Commenting on the success of the show, Gupta says, “Every show is getting bigger and better. The footfall has increased to more than 2,000 which is huge compared to the previous edition.”

“We are coming up with our next show at Gurgaon, later this month and we will be organising such shows on Diwali and Karwa Chauth.

There will be better and more brands in the next edition. And also, a significant part of the proceeds will be donated to some NGOs that work for women empowerment and child education,” she added.
