THE LAVISH EXHIBIT
Shopping for an event? Wedding? Engagement? Bridesmaid? Mehendi Ceremony? Sangeeth? Birthday party? Fancy brunch? Dinner date? Meeting your boyfriend’s family for the first time? Or you might be someone like us who don’t need an occasion to shop. For all of your excuses to shop, Spicy Sangria Events had the brands to provide. They hosted a lavish exhibit at Shangri La on this 21st of September where so many budding designers had displayed.
As soon as we entered, all we could think of was where the scrumptious smell was coming from. But we couldn’t spot the stall as there was so much crowd around it. We had to wait for more than 15 minutes and that’s when we could finally see what laid ahead of us — Isn’t the picture enough to make you wonder how well they must’ve tasted! Before we could kick-start our shopping trail, we stuffed ourselves with some good delicacies. This stall was by the best confectionery artist ever, Pooja Bajaj. We couldn’t stop adoring how dedicated she was to her work. She was busy from the time we entered till we left.
When we entered the ballroom, there were so many stalls that our heads were literally spinning. But as we started walking, we noticed how different each stall was from each other, yet so similar. There were certain stalls we could skip through as they had garments we’ve already seen before. But there were quite a few stalls that stood out from the rest of the exhibition.
‘Fancy Pants – The Store’ has become a go-to place for western outfits for most young girl’s. Their team sources garments that are meant to peek everyone’s interest.
By now the ballroom was filled and it was literally getting impossible to move around. But, we couldn’t end our exploration in the middle, so we quickly analysed each store and kept moving forward. That’s when we found Aapro, the most fun stall at the event. They had fusion-wears which were a combination of sarees and dhotis, western garments with Indian prints, sarees that can be worn as a dress and many more.
Then we stumbled upon Essemm, the stall that customizes clutches and footwear for brides. These guys are the ones you need if you’re a bride-to-be.
After our marathon around the massive ballroom of Shangri La, we picked up some delicacies from Pooja to get back home and relish.
While we were heading back home, we saw the beautiful décor at Shangri LA’s entrance. We found out that it’s their 3rd anniversary in Bengaluru. Hence, we’d like to congratulate them on making it so far. Their standards have never let any anyone down, rather they always surprise you with unexpected services.
