It was a gathering of eclectic and colourful people at the opening of The Hab – a haberdashery store by Usha – in Mumbai on Wednseday evening! A number of ceelebrities from the fashion and film world trooped in to check out the buttons, bows, bits and bobs which were on display.
The Hab also boasts a signature window installation at the entrance, designed by the internationally acclaimed Indian designer Manish Arora. “The installation is inspired by the vibrant colours of the playful festival of Holi and symbolises energy. Its burst of colour and vibrant motifs are inspired by the annual Jaipur Elephant Festival, accentuated using a mix of sequins, buttons, heart shapes and different coloured pichkaris (water guns)” said Manish.
This first of its kind store in India aims to make sewing a trendy concept that will inspire people to create, innovate and experience the art of sewing. In fact, they even had crafts people make some cool trinkets in front of the guests as well!
Here’s a look at the beautiful people who came to party at the opening:
