Kolkata Fashion Walk – As the name suggests and as many asked, is it some kind of ramp walk? A parade? A theme walk? Or a visit to cities heritage fashion sites? Well, KWF is an initiative by “Tribonista” to bring many from the industry together and grow fashion aesthetics. Kolkata being the house of many stalwarts and designers is still not considered as one of the fashionable cities. The concept of street style or high street fashion is yet to penetrate.
Hence an initiative. To showcase, learn and educate the subject. Kolkata Fashion walk has associated with city bloggers, designers, and fashion hubs to discuss the matter and walk the streets to showcase the fashion culture we inherit. It’s a step taken for self-realization that the city has immense talent and a platform to help each other through various measures like branding etc.
On 5th August 2017, the first edition of fashion walk was witnessed by the city. Excited and much enthusiastic, bloggers and hosts kicked off the walk with a cake cutting ceremony, meet and greet and a quick run through of day’s schedule by team “Tribonista” at Aashka (meeting point) – a store situated on Elgin road.
KFW, edition 1 was designed in a way that covered 6 designer stores, understanding their make and realizing how 1 fashion house is different from another. Hence, we embarked our journey. The participating stores for the day were Aashka, Aditi, Ommbre, Urban Haat, Poshaak, and enSoie.All the six stores had fun activities planned inside the store with a brief store history along with their individual inspirations behind each collection. The walk and the innovative thought process which goes behind creating each and every piece of fashion was truly inspiring and unheard of.
The event was well planned with 30 minutes time allocated in each store followed by a bell to mark the end of the visit in the store after which we were taken to the next store. While the food from Biscotti kept our tummies happy, the intriguing and involving process saw sunset with a foot spa session at Tress talk for us to relax from all the walking and we were waived off happy and high on life.
This great initiative was the first, but not the last. As very soon the 2nd walk has been announced with open registrations for city bloggers. Kolkata Fashion Walk by Tribonista in association with PenTwister and The Swiss Laundry will see the dawn again, on the 2nd of September 2017 with a whole new take on how the city sees fashion and how the world sees Kolkata’s fashion quotient.
You can be a part too.
