Ranjana Salgaocar’s annual exhibition and sale ‘Shringar’ will be held on December 6 and December 7, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Goa Marriott Resort and Spa.
Ranjana Salgaocar, who is the brain behind this exhibition, says about the exhibition journey into its eighth year: “It wasn’t a rosy path.”
The exhibition and sale not only caters to the discerning fashionista with classic tastes but also the lifestyle shopper in Goa and Salgaocar says it was difficult to convince exhibitors that a ‘beach population’ would buy their classic designs. However, not only have the exhibitors gotten a tremendous response, many Shringar patrons have become their regular customers.
Perfectly times to add some charm to festive season shopping, with its exclusive range of products ranging from fashion and lifestyle to precious jewellery and accessories, gift articles, shoes and handbags, Shringar will also witness the launch of designer wear. Popular Goan designer Ranji Kelekar will launch his menswear line at the popular exhibition with his collection of shirts, Jawahar jackets and kurtas. Also on display will be Chhavi Kumar’s resort wear, a gorgeous collection of beach bags, cover ups, kaftans and animal print tunics.
‘Ereena’ an exclusive line of ‘Eri’ silk sarees, garments and stoles will also make its presence felt at the exhibition. ‘Eri’ is an ancient tradition of spinning and weaving followed in a remote region on the foothills of the Himalayas and Eri silk is perfect for all weather, whether winter or summer
Filigree, a lifestyle brand, will make its debut at the exhibition this year. Based in Mumbai, Filigree’s products are sold across the globe. At Shringar Filigree will showcase their collection of high end, handcrafted, beaded cutlery sets, candleholder sets, napkin rings, salad sets, cheese sets and other home products. They will also be showing their new line of exclusive clutches that are perfect to pair with both Indian and Western attire.
Rriso, whose garments are a pleasing mix of femininity, elegance and practicality with fluid lines, is another fresh face at Shringar this year. Rriso currently retails at some of India’s best fashion boutiques like Ensemble, Aza and Ogaan.
Preevin’s quirky and colourful kurtas, Lila’s natural fabric garments in linen and cotton, and Manasi Sheth’s Indo-Western combinations of fabrics and prints are some other exhibitors at the exhibition.
While Shringar will showcase a whole selection of new designers this year, popular old favourites will be back, too – Princessories with their ever popular accessories, gorgeous sarees in a variety of fabrics and weaves from Roliana and Sthree Collections, Frenvy Art essence with artefacts and accessories for homes and offices, and S Mehra Jewellers, who will present fresh designs in silver semiprecious and precious stone studded gold plated jewellery, to name a few.
