Nine Bags Full’s pop-up features brands like Ravage by Raj Shroff and Priyadarshini Rao
Introducing the city to a host of designers for the first time, Coimbatore-based entrepreneur Aparna Suren will debut a curated pop-up show Nine Bags Full. Co-hosted alongside Bengaluru-based entrepreneur Manjari Jalan, the one-day event will see a selection of apparel, jewellery and home and living accessories from 15 designers. “Coimbatore has an interesting mix of people, some who like their ethnic clothing while others are open to experimenting with their looks,” says Aparna.
Borrowing from her love for travel and the ocean, Mumbai-based designer Priyadarshini Rao’s collection is a play on colours like aqua, jade green, oyster and ocean blue. Offering low forked pants, layered chiffon tops and anti-fit dresses in a range of fabrics like chiffon, satin, silk voile and georgette, this designer's collection is an amalgamation of textures, colours and styles that is not specific to one textile tradition. Rs 7,000 onwards.
On the accessory front, keep an eye out for trinkets made by Hyderabad-based jewellery label Amrud. Showcasing silver jewellery with semi-precious stones, we love the boho chic and tribal aesthetics of their line. Look out for their limited collection diamond polki jewellery. Rs 1,000 onwards.
Also, making a return to the city through the pop-up is Jaipur-based brand Amrapali that will be bringing their latest lines including the Masakali collection. Handcrafted in oxidised silver with tribal motifs and coloured glass, this line features intricate metal detailing. Rs 1,700 onwards.
On September 15. From 10.30 am to 7.30 pm. At 33, Desabandhu Street, Ramnagar.
