Designer ready for home debut
- Back from US, 24-year-old fashionista to hold exhibition from today

Thinking how to don the dress that you saw on the Internet or the one your favourite star wore?

With Ranchi-based fashion designer Akansha Gambhir all set to stylise her hometown through her two-day debut exhibition Zorica, which will kick off from July 12, here is an opportunity for city girls to flaunt the latest designer wears.

“I am all set to exhibit the latest fashion accessories, clothes, jewellery. Chiffon, lace and shimmer are the in thing now. My collection has a dominance of these materials in cool colours, Gambhir,” told The Telegraph.

Gambhir, who completed her masters in fashion management from National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Hyderabad, will exhibit an array of the latest trends in apparel, handbags and accessories, which are not only a rage in India but also in international markets.

After rubbing shoulders with the likes of Gucci and Tods, the 24-year-old fashionista is in the city to provide exposure to the youngsters. The exhibition will be held at her Harmony residence in Ashok Nagar.

Speaking about what she thinks of Ranchi’s fashion sense, the designer said: “With shopping malls mushrooming and the Internet no more a luxury, the sense of fashion had certainly changed in Ranchi and youngsters have picked up latest trends fast.”

However, Gambhir also feels that the city still has room to brush up its fashion sense. “This exhibition will provide a platform for fashion lovers who are looking forward to flaunting latest designs,” added .

A graduate from Lady Shri Ram College in Delhi, Gambhir did her schooling from Ranchi. Then she moved to Eugene High School in US for her Plus Two. However, her passion to enter the fashion world was always predominant while she pursued her academics.

“To gain experience I worked for one year with international brands like Gucci and Tods, before I joined my masters. It was indeed an enriching experience for me. I followed the US and European trends from close quarters,” added the young fashionista.

However, this is just the beginning for Gambhir.

The young designer is certainly not going to sit on her laurels. Instead, she is looking forward to visit New Delhi soon and then gear up for another exhibition.

The thrill is not only confined to Gambhir, her family is equally excited about the exhibition. “We are just waiting for her exhibition and we are sure it will be appreciated by our youngsters.” said a proud father, Jogesh Gambhir.
