I finally made it to the city of joy, Kolkata! On the first ever #MMFashionTour, I managed to squeeze in this #SecretsOfTheStreet session. I’ve heard so many wonderful stories about the city and its love for art. So obviously, this made it a sure shot for BandraRoad!
On my way to a visit to Eina Ahluwalia‘s studio, I took a little detour of my own to discover a street shopping spot called Gariahat.
Before I took to the street, I grabbed a quick Aam Panna drink to beat the heat and then head straight to where all the excitement lay.
So much to shop!
I was told by my cab driver that Gariahat is a favorite street shopping choice for locals and tourists too. Reason being, the vendors are chatty and very accommodating, and the fact that there’s so much to choose from makes Gariahat a must-visit.
The sights and sound of the city of joy.
This trip was a blast and I felt Kolkata’s joyous side! From the narrow street lanes bustling with shops and people, to corner stores selling vintage Bengali furniture.
Finally, jewelry designer Eina Ahluwalia treated me to some Puchkas at her favourite spot.
