JADE – a luxury ‘ boutique by designers Karishma and Monica is having a private preview of their new spring summer limited edition collection on Peddar Road, Mumbai this Friday. I’ve accidentally popped into this store before and run right out when I discovered the pretty blue lehenga I was admiring was priced at 1.5lakhs ($2,978). Ah, a sense of deja vu.
Anyway I’m curious to see what all this summer fuss is about. I mean, doesn’t it seem like the fashion fraternity has gone into major overdrive in the only month when the last thing any of us (in Mumbai at least) want to do is put on more clothes?
(I do think that “Jade” is a cool name for a store though.)
Meanwhile Aza (another fashion store in Mumbai) kicks off its 3-day annual sale (29th April to May 1st) featuring huge discounts on big designer labels. (Upto 70% I’m told, I think a little economic down-swing is the flavor of the seasion.) Look for bargains on Anamika Khanna (check out her Fashion week finale), Anupama Dayal, Anand Kabra, (designer to the stars) Manish Malhotra, Manish Arora, Rohit (the-fight-club) Bal, Ranna Gill, Rocky S., Sabyasachi (who just revealed his new summer prêt), Surily Goel and Varun Bahl. (I don’t think they left anyone out did they?!)
