It was Monday morning, 22nd August when the 2nd edition of the big loot shopping event started off with a bang at the Eros Hotel, Nehru Place. With 53 designers from all across the country, the event had created much buzz ever since its announcement. Kalista, Ritika Malhotra, Ragini Singhania, Nothing to Wear by Ashima & Kanika, Kylee, Luster by Poonam and Meenu, Bumble Bee, Blanche by Vineeta, Six Yards by Nitika and Sonali are some designers who displayed their work at the event.
“We had a great response for the last edition with more than 2000 shoppers and we have organised the 2nd edition on public demand. We are expecting high numbers this year, said Vernica, the event organiser.”
From designer sarees to evening gowns, kolhapuri juttis to ballerinas, handbags to jhumkis, there was everything a woman loves to carry. Also, there were stalls displaying home décor products. All this was on display with prices slashed up to 70%. The collection was completely unique, something which one won’t find easily in the markets of Delhi. All the clothing was specially designed to offer a blend of style and comfort. It was this unmatched collection that made people rush to this amazing event.
“We were here for the 1st edition also and because of a great response we are back. This is a great opportunity for shoppers as they get to buy designer clothing at almost half prices, said Misbah, owner, Zebaish.” “You are getting to shop Designer dresses, footwear, and accessories under 10K. What could be better?” said Sneha, a shopper at the event.
Most of the designers continued on the event from the last edition. Seeing great response from the last edition, many new designers made it to the 2nd edition. “We heard that the 1st edition did extremely well, which is why we thought of coming to the event. This is a great platform to reach the maximum number of shoppers in Delhi. The crowd is great and we are expecting a lot, said the owner, Artisan Saga.”
The event was not only about designer dresses and accessories, it was supported by Bharaz, an organisation that has joined the initiative called ‘Beti bachao- beti padhao’. The NGO aims to empower every girl by nurturing their talent and providing them opportunities. Bharaz majorly contributes to value education, women empowerment, gender equality and social upliftment. Anuj Gupta, a member of the organisation said, “this is one big platform where we showcase the work of women from different villages around India and then use the money generated from here in their professional development.”
So, this was a biggggggg loot! Amazing designer stuff at a super bargain. We found no one walking out of the event without a shopping bag. The event was more like a treat for every woman who wished designer stuff at reasonable prices.This makes us eagerly wait for the 3rd edition. No?
