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.
