Fine art and farewells! Some of the hottest parties and events from the past week in Chennai
IT was a jam-packed week, with every type of offering you can think of. I was amazed at the energy of some people who were able to be everywhere, and do everything, looking fabulous all the while. Some of us lesser mortals though, went for the pick-and- choose route.
Right at the top of the list this week was Absolut Space, another fab Absolut Art installment, this time in collaboration with Harsha Biswajit. Q Bar wore a completely new look, right out of a sci-fi movie, and we had a blast interacting with the installation. Thankfully the next day started off not so early with a brunch at Palladium, to launch the Palladium Fashion Avenue.
It was a beautiful afternoon, with everything from the décor to the ladies who got to catch up over a sit down lunch. Many of the same faces were seen at the launch of The Dessert Café by The Cupcake Company, yet another undertaking by ‘Boss Babe’ Shitija Nahata. The cute new space on TTK Road saw guests nibbling on some seriously delicious treats over fruity drinks and selfies.
The week ended with a gathering at the ITC Grand Chola to bid farewell to General Manager Anil Chadha and welcome Kuldeep Bhartee. The evening saw quite a turnout including diplomats, cultural ambassadors, influencers and patrons.
