Breaking stereotypes right from its first edition last year, Lime Soda Pop-Up continues to delight Chennai-ites as the go-to place for those seeking unique fashion and lifestyle accessories for men and women that are trendy yet affordable. “A plethora of options from budget friendly finds to plush designer gear has been our inimitable feature and this edition just got bigger and bolder, as we will have a couple of Lakme Fashion Week designers in the mix,” shares Soundariya excitedly. Aptly themed Summer Bazaar the edition will feature 24 participants showcasing their exemplary creations all day on April 12 and 13 at Amethyst.

The highlight of the retail bonhomie will be from fashion week designers’ Sougat Paul from Kolkata and Indore’s Aarti Vijay Gupta who will display their bespoke pieces straight from the ramp. While Nirjara prides in new-age clothing inspired from royal India featuring handcrafted fabrics and luxurious silhouettes, Sougat Paul’s forte is with gorgeous cocktail and gala dresses filled with immaculate clever detailing that draws inspiration from small everyday thoughts and objects. Aarti Vijay Gupta is certain to capture every fashionista’s imagination with her ensembles in elegant three dimensional and quirky electric prints. Also exciting is the showcase from city-based designer Bandana Narula, who will launch her latest line exclusively at this pop-up. Grandmas Love 4 U is another nifty enterprise that is known for cosmetics like cooling eye gel, lip care along with skin lightening scrubs, iconic body butters and hair care products.
