Bangalore’s latest fashion hotspot for the urban woman
Founded by Lavanya Nalli (LN), as her own entrepreneurial venture and business initiative, the LN experience has identified Bangalore as the first location for the launch which took place on a Tuesday. This outlet marks Lavanya’s first independent entrepreneurial venture in the retail business. All products that have been designed and made in-house at LN are produced through a combined exercise between the design team and local artisans.
“We are committed towards breathing fresh life into traditional crafts by making them very urban and chic”, said Lavanya Nalli, Founder-Director, of her new retail brand. “The Lavanya Nalli Experience will embed cosmopolitan aesthetics within intricate craftsmanship”, she added. LN aims at being a retailing brand that creates ethical fashion, creating a design-led brand that follows a socially-conscious approach. The forte of LN will include exclusive sarees with very distinct designs; most of the products are designed in-house and cannot be found anywhere else as it is difficult to replicate designs that have been developed through collaborative efforts with craft communities.
On offer at LN are a range of dupattas and stoles along with an enticing range of ethnic wear for women. The shopper can also have a pick from the collection of bags, accessories and soft furnishing. Currently, offerings from the stable of LN distinctly fall within one of the following themes: Black & White Collection, Vibrants Collection and Jaipur Collection.
Ranjann, a fashion photographer from Paris, together with Savio Jon, one of the leading stylists and designers in India, fashioned an iconic campaign that captured the essence of the LN persona: feminine, intelligent and eternally stylish with a streak of fun yet rooted in heritage. The launch of the LN experience was unravelled in the midst of a fashion show choreographed by India’s iconic image consultant, Prasad Bidappa, to showcase some of the highlights of her collection, and a contemporary dance sequence by Attakkalari – Centre for movement arts.
