When asked how the idea for such an experience originated – Lakshmi VP, the mastermind behind Madras Margarita said “An avid shopper myself, I always wanted to bring forth a curated experience where people could shop quality products from lesser known brands. My intent with Madras Margarita was to make it a one stop experience for the entire family to shop and have a fun filled weekend.

The Christmas Edition was inspired by the Christmas fairs in Europe where families and friends rejoice and enjoy the festivities with cheer”. The pop up also featured a book exchange, where visitors could exchange a book they’ve already read for another pre-loved book of their choice. Brands such as Studio Vallikka, Trayee, Beads a la mode, Ecofemme, Baby’s Breath, All things Chettinad, Khwaabh, Go Chic, Madraskarri, A Pretty Jumble were a part of the Christmas Market.

Decadent desserts and treats brought to you by Sweet Talk, Buttons Cupcakes, The Brown Hut, Le Marche, Juco, I&Z Gourmet, Bombay Churros and Paprika provided some oomph to the gastronomical quotient of the event. Not limiting itself to stalls & shopping, Madras Margarita also featured a host of shows and workshops.
