The festival season is around – after Dussehra, it’s the turn of the festival of light ‘Diwali’ with its counterpart Eid. So you can visualize the celebration happening inside home and outside (pockets) too. In India, a lot of importance is laid out to Navartri vrat, Diwali puja and Ramzan’s roza.
As I am really passionate about handcrafted stuff and designer collections, I always try to have a peek if there is something happening in town. Well, in past two days I went to one Diwali fair and an Art & design show.
Last friday evening Elle Décor award 2006 were announced; for seeing the winners names and details check the upcoming issue of ElleDecor (India edition). And if really interested to have a close lookup of the products, visit Art & Design show at The Grand Hotel, New Delhi India (Its happening from 14-15 oct. 2006).
Where you can catch some designers like Alex davis, Nikhil Verma designer furniture or Swarovski crystal artworks and Floss lighting to DuPont’s designer friendly solid surface. Or you can even catch a presentation on ‘the meaning of measure’ by Piero Lissoni. Here is a glimpse of that show.
About Diwali mela at Blind school, near Oberoi, New Delhi; its upto 18th oct. This is one of the best Diwali fair in Delhi, so don’t miss the chance and people comes here specially to buy candles that are specially crafted by blind students, which has the power to lighten up our homes.
You just can not stop buying lots of artifacts, terracotta planters and glittering gifts for ownself and others. I didn’t click pictures as I really wanted to enjoy the mood of fair there and I end up buying lots of awesome products for home. So go and enjoy and if get tired, take foot massage by students of Blind relief association instead of paying big chuck of money to VLCC or something.
So celebration is on. Cheers.
