The exhibition at The Residency has it all, with jewellery, designer attire and a fortune teller

Imagine you have planned a destination wedding in Thailand. You cannot take your gold and diamond jewels because the customs’ officials will not let you. But what if you find jewellery exactly similar to your bridal set; cheaper and lighter? Esha Bagla’s Pretty Little Things at Organzaa offers just that. She has light weight solitaires, rings and bracelets that look exactly like those wedding jewels but they do not cause you any hassles while flying. “My sets are made of semi-precious stones and silver. I even stock rings that resemble your diamond wedding rings!” she says.

From gowns, shrugs and flats to trendy hair clips and pillow cases, every stall at Organzaa looks tempting. The dresses look fashionable and suit both young and old. There are Chanderi saris and dupattas as well as tunics, palazzo pants and shrugs. Vishal Kapur’s stall has silk saris and dupattas with ethnic motifs. His silk cotton saris with hand appliqué, chikan embroidery and kathi work look sophisticated.

Designers with tapes hung around their necks greet you at each stall. They customise the right look for you. For instance, at Onlyyu, Kolkatta based designer Usha Goswami will pair those colourful skirts with pretty shrugs and tops. High waist skirts are in these days, she says.

“And one can wear them with crop tops and you will surely be a head turner,” she assures you.

Shilpa Karnavat’s flowing, colourful silk salwar tops and kurtis are ideal for formal occasions. With pearls, tassels and embroideries and flowing cuts, these look both ethnic and chic. “You can mix and match kurtis and churidars or you can buy an entire ensemble, including the kurta, dupatta and the churidar,” says Shilpa. She supplies her attires to Sabyasachi brands such as Elan and others such as Fuel and Miraangi and Dubai based brand like Studio 8.

There are accessories too. The gold-plated chand-balis and heavy jhumkas at Megha Asher are eye catchers. Megha’s collection also includes printed tops with turtle necks, chains and scarves. She has launched a new range of skin care products under the label Juicy Chemistry. Body scrubs, face masks and foot scrubs made with tea tree oil and orange oil are priced between Rs. 800 and Rs. 3,000.

Like last time, Organzaa has organised some crystal-ball gazing. Only it is with a tarot card reader.

“I am an energy synchronizer not an astrologer,” clarifies Chandoo Muthu, a tarot card reader, from Kuala Lumpur as soon as you walk into her cubicle. She asks you to pick tarot cards, and interprets them. She describes you, your traits and comments on your relationships with the world and ambitions. An MBA graduate, Chandoo has toured around the country to learn different kinds of astrological sciences. Ask her what is the FAQ she gets, and she replies with a wink, “Love life. Every client asks me about that.”

(Organzaa is on at The Residency from 11 a.m. to 7.30 p.m.)
