Aaryotsav brings over 80 labels for a retail-happy day
Radhika Thakural features home-based entrepreneurs, all under one roof at Aaryotsav, this Thursday. The all-day event has everything from head gear and fine jewellery to designer wear and even spa services for pets. “It is a platform for entrepreneurs who work out of home and find it hard to find a platform to showcase their products,” says Thakural who uses part of her profits to fund social causes.
Started on a much smaller scale three years ago and limited to clubs and residential complexes, Thakural found that people were constantly looking for new lines and products that were interesting and different. Prompted by the good response, she decided to go all out with her first ‘open to the public’ event with an exhibition that spans home and leather furnishings, quaint artefacts, art work and couture from over 100 participants.
Thakural gives us a peek into some of the most exciting retailers. For high-quality leather furnishings, Dash Furniture has a whole range of treated sofas, chairs and leather home decor. Princessories with their funky, decorative headgear will set off your festive wardrobe, while Rafik Malik’s embroidered panels and garments promises to be quite the hit.
Indian designer wear from Gagan Rekhi’s Collection has been a bestseller previously and will match up with The Silver Shoppee wide range of jewellery. Also look out for Yash’s pet care, Golden Oven & Trinity food stalls of home-baked goodies and installation art work by Colourflox.
Entry free. Rs 500 upwards. December 19. 10 am to 6 pm. At JW Marriott, Vittal Mallya Road. Details: 9886685002
