Anra at Textures 2012

So as I was saying…We launched our first collection at Textures, a fashion exhibition, in Hauz Khas Village, New Delhi last week.

The response was very good! People loved the collection. We were fortunate to have Shaily Khera of Confessionz of a Closet and Bhavna Yadav of Muse~Me and u styled for eternity cover the event, which will be up on their blogs soon.

Here are some pictures of the event…

I had loads of fun and I am happy our first collection was well received.

Till next time…:-)

A new beginning….

Apologies for such a long absence and for not updating before!

I had mentioned somewhere before that I am working on a project. Well it started off the day I started getting bored of my mundane job and decided that it was time to start up things on my own. But there were some financial problems. So I started setting up my studio slowly and steadily. And then suddenly one day a friend of mine called me up and asked me if I would be interested in setting up an exhibition!

Then started the most busiest month in my life as of yet! In only 45 days, I bought a sewing machine, hired a tailor, bought loads of beautiful fabrics, and designed and produced about 30-35 pieces which became part of my first collection!

Also, in the mean time I also did the branding of my brand, with a little help from a friend!

So let me introduce you to – Anra 

“Anra is a clothing line that offers graceful dresses and tunics made with exquisite Jamdani figured cotton fabrics straight from the villages of West Bengal. Jamdani, a process of weaving fine cotton in beautiful motifs, consuming numerous hours of hard work is an almost dying craft. Our USP lies in customization since well fit clothes are always in fashion! We promise to offer exclusive pieces that you will cherish for the rest of your life.”

So two of my very good friends and great designers and me put up an exhibition launching our individual collections in New Delhi.

Well this much for now….I will post more about the exhibition later!

Bye
