With the nip in the air, everyone wants to explore and indulge in exciting experiences.
Temporary is not your run-of-the-mill pop up. It’s a highly curated experience offering the best in Fashion, Lifestyle and Food topped with innovative Live Sessions to make the experience a holistic one.
Happening at The Old House on the 17th and 18th of November from 12 to 9 pm, I am sure you would have never witnessed the changing seasons in this fashion.
I am so excited to have tied up as the Official Blogger for Temporary. Let me give you a quick tour of the event by talking about our participants first.
Red Sister Blue:
This label is coming all the way from Delhi. A women’s apparel brand where modern and western designs meet traditional Khadi weaves and hand crafted fabric.
A brand that echoes who you are, that walks along with you stride for stride; understanding both the old and the new with an eclectic fusion of style and culture.
Red Sister Blue is about sisterhood. It’s about girls in shorts on bikes turning heads. It’s about daring to be sexy. Woman who know what they want and aren’t afraid to go out and get it. A celebration of femininity and freedom.
Come show them some love for this is their debut in the city of joy!
A bespoke fashion studio coming to you all the way from Chennai. Their clothes are as fun as their brand name itself.

Label Nikita Bajoria:
Inspired by the feminine spirit, it is a fashion brand launched by the young and vibrant Kolkata based designer Nikita Bajoria in the year 2017.
What rises in spring, may fade in fall, but the traveller is not seasonal.
A label that is synonymous with all things edgy and quirky, this one’s a personal favourite. Definitely some silhouettes you have never seen before.
Avant garde, experimental, and definitely not for the faint-hearted!

The label RINI SEAL has steadily been gaining prominence in the city’s fashion circuit.
The newest line focuses on Bengal’s rich history of handloom and embroidery practices. The label also offers wardrobe styling, where outfits are ‘made to measure’ for the client to ensure that their wardrobe is stocked perfectly for specific lifestyle and career needs. At RINI SEAL you can shop for outfits that are functional, affordable, and tailored to perfection.
Howrah Bridge is brand of products that are “different” from the rest. Be it their clothes, accessories, home decor or other stuff, each design has a story of its own.

Fashionable yet environment-friendly couture – this is only possible at Biome by Namrata Manot, a force to be reckoned with. At this boutique the clothes can be customised according to your choices and preferences.
