We love to hear when two friends come together to inspire one another, launch their brands and encourage each other. Such was the case on Wednesday, October 17 when the two stunners, Nandita Mahtani and Renu Chainani Garware hosted an interesting Fashion & Home trunk show at Mahtani’s store – Ananya in Bandra.
Renu launched Ren Home, a pret line of home accessories (All made in India) that she has been working on for the past few months. Nandita unveiled two collections namely The Pride Collection, a homage to the inspiring thought of ‘Love is Love’ and The Diwali collection at this fun pop up. Nandita is known for her soft, feminine and easy to wear silhouettes when it comes to her label whilst Renu is a highly acclaimed and innovative interior designer.
The star-studded event was attended by the who’s who of the social circle and the film world such as Tusshar Kapoor, Amrita Arora Ladak, Anu Dewan, Pragya Yadav, Mehr Jesia, Bhavana Pandey, Simone Arora, Laila Lamba, Natasha Madhvani Khan, Nin Dusanj to name a few.
Nandita Mahtani, ace fashion design, and entrepreneur said, “The onset of the festive season is a very special time both, for my label and me. The spirit of celebration and togetherness is a great source of inspiration. It invariably finds the tactile form by way of colours, structure, and silhouettes on my drawing board. For this season, we have created two collections brought to life using distinct elements that resonate with the modern, Indian woman. While the Pride Collection celebrates the exhilarating emotion of love; the Diwali Collection marries traditional details with modern aesthetics. Needless to say, I am thrilled to introduce the collection alongside the launch of RenHome!”
Speaking at the event, Renu said that, “I am very grateful to all my dearest friends and family who made the effort to come all the way in this horrendous traffic during Navratri! After being in the furniture and interior space for so many years I got so sidetracked with market trends and clients needs. I started Ren Home which means love and lotus in Japanese, the lotus is very special to me because it signifies blossoming even in muddy waters – something my Buddhist practice of Nam Myoho Renge Kyo has taught me. The lotus in Hinduism signifies goddess Lakshmi’s strength and purity. Therefore the name ‘Ren’. To me it has always been about looking, sourcing and finding things you love and ‘Ren Home’ is just that. A big Thank you to everyone for all the support.”
