Actor Chetan Hansraj and his wife Lavinia recently hosted a wonderful sale of Lavinia Hansraj Soft Furnishings at Le Sutra in Mumbai. The lovely designs were much appreciated by the gathering and the guests picked up most of the stuff on offer.
The collection included hand embroidered and intricately designed cushion covers, table runners, dinner mats, curtains, sheers and throws. They also unveiled an exclusive Christmas collection in red and velvet and some Christmas bells and candles.
Says Lavinia, “Our designs are all hand embroidered and includes a lot of sequinned work with gold patchwork. Mostly velvet and raw silk is used, which is not readily available elsewhere. Also, Chetan’s expertise in Fashion Designing (being a graduate of NIFT) has helped a great deal in designing and ideating our collection.”
Priya and Namrata Dutt were among the first to walk in and spent a considerable amount of time admiring the wonderful creations. She left with a handful of bags with her sister and was overheard complementing Lavinia about her designs. Viren Shah and Meghana Naidu were among the early birds too and hung around as more and more people walked in. Lavinia’s good friend Nisha Harale stayed right through the evening and picked up most of the Christmas collection as hubby Adam was seen settling a big tab on her behalf. Former actor Jugal Hansraj was there to lend support to his cousin Chetan in his new venture too, though he had to leave early.
Others who were spotted at the exhibition included Nisha Jamwal, Munisha Khatwani, Zeba Kohli, Kushal Punjabi, Apurva Agnihotri, Shilpa Saklani and politician Asif Bhamla.
