Whether or not online shopping has not been your first preference up until now, it’s time for an upgrade. If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s got to be exploring and living in a digital world—which includes efficient retail therapy. Bookmark your weekend for a new luxury destination that is bound to get you excited to shop again. Hosted by Reliance Brands Ltd, The Luxury Shopping Festival is designed to be a one-stop shop for international fashion brands, engaging conversation with experts on beauty, food, culture, weddings, lifestyle and much more. The calendar will feature two channels—one for live discussions and the other for brand previews and store walkthroughs.
From August 7 to 23, a three-day event will take place each weekend, with a packed line-up of discussions. Expect Neha Dhupia chatting with Mitali Sagar of House of Misu, Pernia Qureshi in conversation with Angelica Visconti Ferragamo (including a virtual tour of the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo in Florence, Italy), a panel with Vandana Mohan answering all your questions on lockdown weddings, textile expert Gaurang Shah and Bessie Cecil discuss historic patronage of the sari, among many others. There’s more—the digital event also brings together interactive workshops on DIY beauty at home, expert insight on vintage cars for collectors and a talk with art aficionado Feroze Gujral. For food lovers, there is a session on cheese with Rahul Akerkar and Margit Kissa, and a discussion on ‘Where the best chefs eat’ with Zorawar Kalra and Vir Sanghvi in store.
