We stepped inside an old bungalow in Ballygunge and found ourselves in a pretty multi-label designer store-cum-cafe with its 24-year-old owner greeting us with a smile. Fanetta, which means “crown with laurels” in French, is the brainchild of Abhishruti Dutta, a fashion designer who sources clothes and accessories by young and budding designers from across the country.
There’s a special focus on apparel and accessories from the east and Northeast, which occupy substantial space on the racks. “I used to see a lot of pop-ups during my stay in Mumbai and had been wanting to collaborate with young designers. It’s finally happening,” said the young entrepreneur.
