How this 24-year-old's jutti label found its way to Sonam Kapoor's mehendi ceremony
This Mumbai-based company’s custom-made juttis made it to one of the biggest celebrity weddings in Bollywood
If you're looking for a pair of shoes that are perfect for the summer and are also comfortable, look no further. Fizzy Goblet specializes in creating juttis that strike the right balance between traditional and modern designs while ensuring comfort. They make colourful sneakers, juttis, and slip-ons among many other styles with pandas, ships, intricate embellishments and different vibrant abstract designs that make it a must-have in every girl's wardrobe.
The company was co-founded by Laksheeta Govil when she was 24-years old. She studied at Pearl Academy of Fashion, New Delhi. Her aim was "to reinvigorate the traditional Indian Jutti by combining modern prints, materials and quirky embellishments to contemporise Juttis". Fizzy Goblet began its rise to fame when her business partner, Abhinav Mehra, represented the brand at a popular reality television show that focused on business ventures.
Fizzy Gs have now become a staple brand in Bollywood. Bollywood actor and fashionista, Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja gave the guests at their mehendi ceremony, on Monday, May 7, at Mumbai, a surprise when they presented them with gorgeous white and gold juttis, custom made to fit their theme.
Several famous personalities have been seen sporting shoes from Fizzy Goblet. Aditi Rao Hydari and Alia Bhatt styled their juttis with a traditional salwar kameez, Shilpa Shetty paired her Fizzy Gs with a simple lehenga, Parneeti Chopra wore her juttis with a pair of blue jeans, Huma Qureshi styled her fizzy Goblet juttis with an ankle-length dress, Anushka Sharma wore her pair of juttis with an elegant black saree and Jacqueline Fernandez, kept it simple by wearing her Fizzy Gs with a mid-length dress.
These juttis are well acclaimed because of the way it is made to ensure the comfort of the user. It is made of leather and comes with inner padding and lining as well as silk and hand embroidered fabric "to add a touch of elegance to the pieces." What makes this brand so popular is "the trendy modern prints, traditional wedding designs with quirky embellishments and stylish variations such as Broguesters (Juttis with a brogue pattern), sneaker juttis and loafers".
The newly released Spring Summer 18 collection draws inspiration from Laksheeta’s travels. She says,"I am always on the lookout for something new, and have portrayed small elements of the things I saw during these travels in my work". The Sail Away Sneakers and the Udaipur Juttis are few of the styles inspired by her trips.
Their fast-moving designs are the Panda sneaker juttis and the Aisha juttis, which was specially designed for Sonam Kapoor's mehendi ceremony. But no two styles are alike. She promises that "every pair is different from the other in terms of style and design". The price of these gorgeous juttis ranges between Rs.2400 to Rs. 3000 and they are available online at https://www.fizzygoblet.com/.
