Friends and co-curators, Pavithra Sagar and Nikita Kapoor, are back with the sixth edition of Funky Fish, called Desi Tadka. This time, the pop-up is all about pampering the ladies, especially the brides, with designers like Roshni Chopra and Divya Anand showcasing their festive collection. “Expect a variety of styles ranging from bridal lehengas and draped saris, to intricately-embroidered capes to affordable westerns,” begins Sagar.
This time the edition is bigger, with a live workshop by Anuj Shrama of Delhi-based Button Masala. “He’ll take a piece of plain fabric and make an outfit using buttons and rubber bands, nothing else. It is a simple yet quick way of making clothes without any tools. It has developed over the last four years and started with the designer’s explorations for Lakme Fashion Week,” explains Sagar.
First-timers in the city include Mumbai-based Prerto (Indo-western jewellery), Arunima Majhi (contemporary fusion wear) and Salita Nanda(womenswear), and Kapraha (woven Indian wear) from Jaipur. Sagar picks Roshni Chopra’s fusion off-shoulder draped sari as her favourite, while Kapoor loves Majhi’s trousers with an attached drape. Sagar signs off with promises of new elements in their next show in January.
