Prominence is given to NGOs supporting causes that matter. The gourmet section of the exhibition has always been very popular
It’s time for one of Mumbai’s most anticipated events, the IMC Ladies’ Wing Women Entrepreneurs' Exhibition. The 32nd edition presents a wide canvas of products in fashion, jewellery, lifestyle and gourmet, an impeccably curated showcase for women entrepreneurs from across the country who don’t have their own retail presence. Their passion and unique individual stories give the exhibition a distinctive flavour.
In the fashion segment of the exhibition, Manju Jalota’s Alankrit presents a delightful selection of Chikankari. The senior lady with an army background has been working diligently to revive one of India’s oldest crafts and improve the lives of ‘Chikankari’ craftsmen. Celebrity designer Rhea Pillai showcases embroidered kurtas made of organic material extracted from bamboo, milk and lotus stem. Ramola Bachchan’s First Resort presents holiday essentials to wear the whole year-round. Devina Salarpuria’s Studiomoda celebrates the exhibition’s theme of supporting sustainability with natural fabrics and conscious clothing, bringing back the luxury of simplicity and purity in fabric and design, using 100% cotton. Sustainability has never been cooler than with the range of vegan, sustainable footwear made by Rushali Jaising’s Rumi Design Studio. Canny Shah presents a beautiful range of traditional hand-embroidered bandhani and patola while Surabhi Kanoria’s Benras-e-khaas-Benaras has exclusive sarees and suits from the karigars of Benares. Dress it up with first time participant Aakriti Tapuriah’s fine jewellery, very appealing for the young shopper as it can be worn every day and is pocket-friendly or Sheetal Lohia’s beautiful selection of Jadau.
