More than 25 years ago when Vimal Shivdasani planned a Vimonisha exhibition in Chennai, the designers used to look at her in disbelief, when they were told they had to showcase their work in the Southern city. Pulling off a near Herculean task, Vimal used to organise the exhibition, pooling in the best of designers. That was in the late 80s. Today, stepping into its 26th year and gearing up for its 110th exhibition, Vimonisha is back in town for its pre-festival show on August 5 and 6 at the Hyatt Regency Chennai. The Vimonisha Raksha Bandhan and Pre Diwali Festive Designer Exhibition will showcase a line-up by designers from Mumbai, Delhi, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Benaras, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Surat, Bhubaneswar and other cities, apart from designers from Dubai and Thailand.

Also look forward to some breathtaking jewellery by Celeste and Bliss Beads, as well handbags by Bottomline, Flaunt it, and Red and Gold bags, a division of the famed Chamee and Palak. Home décor by Micasa will also be on display at the event.

About the two-day extravaganza, Monisha Gidwani, the daughter of Vimal and CEO of Vimonisha, says that the exhibition has grown from six designers to 60 over the years. “Every time we promote our designers in Chennai, at the Vimonisha Exhibition we do it with  a deep sense of pride because we know exactly what the discerning woman of Chennai expects,” she says.
