Run by designer Gitanjali Fatehpuria, the label made its debut in 2016 and was launched by none other than the grand dame of Kolkata fashion, Anamika Khanna. Fatehpuria has had experience in designing for international fashion houses in Japan, Australia, UK and Europe and decided to launch her own brand name with a 2,500 sq ft. store in Panditiya (South Kolkata). Her most successful collection is a line of cocktail dresses in monochrome for which she still gets requests. Her upcoming line has a mix of A-line jumpsuits and shirt dresses with “interesting cuts”. Drop waists, knee high slits, buttondowns, asymmetric hemlines, layered tunics with Aladdin pants and embroidered bold floral patterns will be seen in the new collection.
Thanks to Anamika Khanna’s stamp of approval, Kolkata fashionistas have been lining up for her clothes, including Tollywood stars like Koel Mallick, Parno Mittra, debutante Rukmini Maitra and model and actress Rachel White.
