POP­U­LAR VOTE

India Today - - SIMPLY KOLKATA - PRANAY BAIDYA ATELIER

Only five years old, Pranay Baidya Atelier has be­come a Page Three favourite. While the la­bel does evening wear for women, bri­dal wear, menswear and shoes, it’s Pranay Baidya's saris specif­i­cally that have ac­quired dis­tinc­tion. “You can tell a Pranay

Baidya sari from a mile away,” says the 30-year-old de­signer. This time his col­lec­tion will in­clude “the trea­sure trove of indige­nous tex­tiles” in­clud­ing fine kota silks, muslins, tus­sars, vin­tage Be­nara­sis with an­tique styled jewel bor­ders, flo­ral thread work em­broi­dery in jewel toned colours.

It’s “op­u­lent in colour, tex­ture and fab­ric and yet aes­thet­i­cally stim­u­lat­ing and wear­able,” says the de­signer. Sported by pop­u­lar Kolkata names in­clud­ing stars like Parno Mit­tra and Mum­taz Sorcar, Baidya’s work has be­come a bri­dal favourite too.
