Fashion for a cause
Conceptualised by Neena Kanoi and Shruti Goenka nearly five years ago, Nouveau presents a unparalleled fashion and design experience. Featuring leading lights of the Indian fashion and art fraternity in an exceptional setting, its objective is to connect a discerning clientele with a rich array of indigenous talent, brought together in a manner seldom witnessed before. Moreover, it offers a platform to young and aspiring designers who wish to reach a certain standard of excellence. At this year’s show, participants from across the country would be exhibiting in different sections including couture, jewellery (precious and semi-precious), kids’ wear and lifestyle accessories, besides a collection of art and painting. Having garnered considerable interest among designers and buyers alike, it promises to be an event where trends will be set to stay. Part of the proceeds of the show will go to Sisters of the Poor and Home for the Aged, Calcutta. Media partner: t2.
