ZENE story

by , in
Ok.............

So.....I've got NEWS for you guys!!!

My mom & one of her friends recently opened a store called ZENE in the heart of the city. It's a multi-designer outlet where one can find exclusive products of young & upcoming designers from all across the country.
 There are Howrah Bridge & Sandeep Sarkar kurtas, salwar suits, sarees as well as Howrah Bridge & Crow tunics & dresses; Howrah Bridge neckpieces & brooches; Aarti Verma handpainted bags; Rohan Arora & Fetish shoes, Priya's home made candles, Treasure scarves & other knick-knacks.
So, you see, I've been all running around, helping them out set up the store, finalise on the designers (since I'm connected to fashion in general, I was the one who contacted all the designers, some of them being close friends too!), plan out the interiors, set up the stock, do the publicity & marketing, arrange for some of the press people to come & cover the inauguration.......you get the drift? Phew! It has been a hectic & super-busy couple of weeks, I tell you!!
The store was inaugurated by the young & dynamic footwear designer Rohan Arora (who's a dear friend) amid much pomp & excitement. People who have dropped in, have appreciated all the stuff so far............the store has set off on a good note.........hope it goes from good to better in times to come! :)

I've got some snaps from the day of the store opening to share with all of you..........I just had to show you guys what I've been up to.......no?







And now, moving on to how I was dressed for the day......... :)



Wore this kimono-style knitted tunic for the first time......and LOVED it! :)
Specially like the red & white pattern on the neck...........pretty, ain't it???



Posing at different corners of the store! :P



Sorry for the haggard look.........I was mighty tired after running about all day, but still had some enthusiasm left to click some snaps to share with you all! Me & the camera share an old & ever-lasting rapport, you know! ;)

And I must show you guys what I got for V-day - a beautiful Giordano watch from their limited edition Sir Jean Freya collection!!!

This........and a bunch of lovely roses.........sigh! What else can a girl ask for??? *dreamy-eyed*
(Actually, I only ask for us to be together always......and as much in love at the age of 80 as we are now......!)


Well...........I'll be back with the Valentine's Day outfit...........till then, take care..........& keep it stylish! :)

Cheers,
Polka princess
