Rich collection


RUGS AND Riches, a Bangalore-based boutique, brings to Chennai the latest in fashion world at an exhibition being held at 34, Kothari Road, Off Sterling Road, Nungambakkam. If contemporary clothing is what is being showcased today and tomorrow, then it will be the six-yard wonder that will be celebrated on August 12 and 13.

So, one can choose from an attractive array of skirts, trousers, tops, kurtis and fusion ensembles. Mirror work, appliqué, chikan and kutchi embroidery have been used to enhance the look of the outfits. Stoles with coordinated bags are sure to add a touch of glamour. Bags laced with zari and beads, and silver accessories in unconventional designs are also available. As for the saris, they come in crepe, georgette, tussar and cotton embellished with kutchi, kasuti, zardosi and parsi embroidery. Some have pretty prints — geometric, floral as well as funky abstracts and some have painstakingly hand sketched impressions of Madhubani. The exhibition is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
