Here’s a sneak peek into the elite affair.
The pioneer of multi-designer stores in India ‘Ogaan’ marked its 25th anniversary this week. For this occasion, celebrated designers like Abraham and Thakore, Gaurav Jai Gupta and Aneeth Arora amongst many others created specific collections themed around ‘reflections’.
The event also included a panel discussion on the key moments in the history of fashion in India by honoured members of the Indian fashion industry Mayank Mansingh Kaul, Bandana Tiwari, David Abraham, Ruchika Sachdeva and Thukral & Tagra.
Here’s what designer Kavita Bhartia, the owner of Ogaan had to say at this proud moment.
Kavita Bhartia: It’s been a very exciting journey, Ogaan was the second store in Delhi and the first store in India to open its door and it’s been wonderful that we have had this opportunity to kind of pioneer this fashion movement in India. Fashion is so organised now with the fashion weeks and businesses have been growing from strength to strength and it actually is only 25 years old, the fashion industry in India. I really feel happy that it all started.
