Mumbai, March 6th & 7th 2020, Travelling Trunk: Made in Bengal is an initiative by stylist & curator Chikky Goenka, to promote designers from Bengal, outside Bengal. It’s a unique platform to feature young designers from across the state of Bengal popularizing their indigenous craft & distinct design aesthetic.
In Mumbai, the trunk made a pit stop at Atosa, for a two day showcase of over 19 designer labels. Rishi & Soujit, Paromita Banerjee, Tahweave, Rimi Nayak, Esha Sethi Thirani, Sakshi Jhunjhunwala, Verb by Pallavi Singhee, Vasundhara Mantri, Zohra Jewellery & many more.
We saw a wide assortment of styles, from sustainable pieces, formal evening wear, casual summer outfits, boho-chic ensembles, to contemporary Indian wear-- all under one roof!
On Speaking about the experience,
Chikky Goenka, curator of the Travelling Trunk : Made in Bengal shares, “It is our fifth season & as a part of our five city tour, we visited Mumbai for the first time. We always look for a host that resonate with their idea and intent behind the initiative, and found a perfect match at Atosa, the multi-designer store in Bandra, Mumbai.
The two day event was preceded by a special preview, hosted by Ms. Rekha Kapur & Ms. Veenu Jain, fashionable socialites who graciously invited a bunch of fashionistas. The evening was a fashionable affair & we had an incredible time helping people shop over jhal muri & khullar tea (Bengal's specialty evening snack). It was humbling to see people's reaction on the concept, and also appreciating the designers at the event. It was surely a memorable experience, and we sure want to make this an annual affair in the city.”
