The city has also seen TAKE on Design: Pop Up organized by a leading art magazine TAKE. Drawing in a good crowd, the event was to highlight the best in fashion, jewellery, decor, art collectibles and design. With a view on luxury and functionality and stands to recognise, use and promote the Indian art and craft skills in a global context making it desirable to our patrons.
Blurring the lines between fashion, home and lifestyle, the TAKE Pop-Up brought together an army of young designers with a global aesthetic and Indian identity, thereby facilitating their visibility to both local and global markets. It created an accessible space for coming together of artisans, ceramicists, design professionals, product developers and wider public who will receive their collective efforts just in time for the festive season.
