Over 80 established and upcoming designers get together for a shopping extravaganza that promises to cater to your every festive shopping need, while also taking care of 'shopping guilt'
Shopping trips typically leave us with empty wallets (or clutches) and that dreaded feeling of guilt that lasts until the next shopping spree. At Sahachari Foundation's Design One exhibition, though, you can shop, minus some of the guilt.
This coloured pencil table by R.A.W. can prep up any boring room
The exhibition will showcase the work of 85 designers, while extending support to city-based NGOs Apne Aap Women's Collective (which works for women's empowerment), The Bombay Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Victoria Memorial School for the Blind.
Member of the Sahachari Foundation, Brinda Khatau, says, "All the money that the designers pay for the stalls is donated to charity.
NGOs who will be part of the exhibition do not have to pay any money for the stalls."
Shoppers have Indian and western wear, kidswear, footwear, jewellery, home and lifestyle products and stationery to choose from at the exhibition that hopes to cater to your every festive shopping need.
Vizyon is a good bet for casual western wear, while Myoho's offers some interesting options for the festive season. We also loved the wooden tables with coloured pencils by Random Assortment of Weirdness (RAW).
Golf Ball cushions by Peek a Boo will be loved by kids and adults alike
"I normally cater to the customised furniture market, but love experimenting with different mediums including wood, glass and metal," says Bhavna Kanoria, the 27-year-old interior designer of RAW, who lists the wooden clocks with inlaid metal pieces for personalised messages to be scribbled, as one of her favourites.
Neomy Khatau's shoe designs offer a great mix of strappy flats and festive designs, including pearl-and-diamond-encrusted golden heels. Peek A Boo does an interesting range of cushions and bed linen that's ideal for kids. Looking for statement cuffs and neckpieces? Stop by Bansri Mehta's stall.
'Let them eat cake'
