Sunsets and styling sessions: highlights of all the hottest events in Chennai this past week
Sunsets over beautiful waters, ancient forts, walks along the riverbank, mojitos and lots of great food, sums up my weekend. The occasion? A trip to Orchha, Madhya Pradesh for Vasundara Devi Gohil aka ‘Vaz’s’ milestone birthday celebration. And one we won’t soon forget. The Bundelkhand Riverside Hotel, (a palace converted into a hotel) was the headquarters for the weekend, as we explored the surrounding region, immersing ourselves in history. Alongside the educational experiences, were everything from adventure trails to theme parties, ensuring we were fully occupied and having a blast. The birthday girl —‘girl with a backpack’ for all you Instagram peeps, is a meticulous planner, and went all out! Here’s raising a toast to more amazing experiences and a fabulous year ahead for Vaz!
Back in Chennai, Superdry launched their latest collection with an exclusive styling event by the multi-hyphenated Suresh Menon. As expected, the event was buzzing with bloggers and influencers, serving up some fierce poses and uber chic lounge looks. Suresh gave the crowd some useful pointers along with showing us the ‘must-haves’ from the Autumn-Winter line.
Next up was Éclat, a jewellery showcase of designers from across the country hosted by Shweta Gupta, Nikita Bajaj and Pavithra Sagar. The two-day event which took place at Novotel saw Chennai’s swish set making a beeline for their festive favourites. ‘Diwali’ was the keyword, as the ladies reached out for statement necklaces and chandelier earrings.
This week also saw the finals of the One Plus Red Cable Tour with talents from across Tamil Nadu battling it out at the Lady Andal Auditorium. Keeping the crowd entertained were hosts RJ Syed and Makapa, along with guest performances by the judges Shakthisree Gopalan and Sean Roldan.
As I end this week’s column, I haven’t forgotten that this is Indulge’s Anniversary issue. I must say it's been a pleasure being part of this amazing journey, watching Chennai grow and evolve over the years, and presenting you with our special take on things. Here’s to making more wonderful memories together.
