Celebrating its 10th year anniversary with unique exhibitors and other entertainment tactics to stimulate the crowd in this fun filled event at Raipur, Fashionista will have celebrity studded with Super Model Alesia Raut showcasing modelling tips and fashion shows along with Celebrity Tarot Reader Munisha Khatwani.


Fashionista has brought together many unique fashion and lifestyle products under its umbrella, of which one is Khadi fabric by Artisans Gallery

Artisans Gallery (AG) is an ISO 9001:2008 certified entity involved in manufacturing of women apparels and accessories. The creations of AG are retailed through its own outlets and e-platforms under the brand name ‘AG’. ‘AG’ is promoting traditional pit-loom weaving by using Silk, Linen, Linen Cotton and fine Cotton for its creations.

As we know Khadi and non-violence were two powerful weapons with which Mahatma Gandhi equipped Indians to throw out British colonial rulers. Khadi continued to grow into prominence and a place of pride for Indians.

Fashion designers have found Khadi their canvas as imaginative creations. It is a ripe for re-incarnation as a livery of young surging India. A rising number of young fashion designers are seeking out local fabrics, craft and technique to give expression to this trend.

Khadi as defined by Gandhiji as a cloth hand woven from yarn handspun in India has been taken as legal definition of Khadi. These products are unique in the sense that they are one of a kind besides being truly “cottage” or “hand-spun” and “hand woven”. They are “flawed” and are not mindless creation of machines.

`Thus Artisans Gallery feel responsible in reviving the age old heritage of handicraft and make it a ‘Style Statement’ for woman of substance. They feel proud in informing you that the industry comprises of 100 % women employees. The brand ‘AG’ is also being headed by a woman herself, Ms. Neha Singh, Director of M/s Artisans Gallery.

Khadi as a fabric provides employment to the poor, gives earning to small cotton farmers, is eco-friendly, airy and has simplicity which gives it elegance and connects it to the freedom movement and Gandhian values.

Progressive Khadi activists and Khadi-lovers have realized its true value and are most vocal today for reforms and are voluntarily using the fabric.The basic approach being adopted is making Khadi activities artisan-centric without compromising the growth of this sector.

From a customer’s point of view, Khadi should be more accessible, well-priced, stylish enough to cater to the taste of urban India and to catch the imagination of the younger generation with a cultural resonance in the form of a pride just as the world has now recognized our economic resilience mainly due to a strong domestic market and in the past had found their way in the Gandhian values.


Their motto is to provide a limited edition of handcrafted women apparels and accessories to make women feel pampered. Prior to being part of Team AG, where every woman involved in the industry undergoes stringent refresher training on Industrial work, despite past experience and competence. Once trained at required level, they are involved in awesome creations with a class for ‘Women with Class’. The part of the revenue generated from the sale will be used for betterment of women and un-privileged through SSROH, a NGO working in the field.

Be a part of this unique Khadi movement by gifting Khadi products this Diwali and revisit the era of Gandhian Fabric with Fashionista Exhibitions at Raipur from 6th, 7th & 8th October 17 at Hotel Grand Imperial, Raipur.




A shoe is not only a design, but it’s a part of your body language, the way you walk. The way you’re going to move is quite dictated by your shoes.

—  Christian Louboutin

We all love wearing beautiful pair of shoes thus, the saying “A persons personality is known by the shoes they wear”~

Have we ever wondered how the footwear came into existence and became a successful booming industry?  Kewl…that’s what happened:


It’s hard to imagine a time before the invention of shoes. Though all shoes share common characteristics, the varied shapes, patterns, materials and the fit have transformed drastically over the few decades. There was a time when the footwear of both men and women were similar. In the 18th century, fabric shoes were very much a la mode. Soon the footwear for both started to differ from one another, especially due to a variety of technological advances in the shoe making process had come simpler than before.

With modernization, Now –a-days there are shoes for every occasion, mood, and preferences. There has also been a movement away from styles that focus primarily on comfort and function, as many designers are shifting interest from a matter of practicality to that of aesthetics. Celebrities like Lady Gaga has introduced the world to footwear that’s more art on her foot. If the footwear trends continue in this fashion, there will be a greater following for the future of footwear than that of clothing! Similar is the vision of an Indian brand named “Balujas” from Kanpur.

BALUJAS is the namesake of one of India’s most celebrated shoe business families. Founded in 1919 by KL BALUJA, is now managed by Vidur Mehta, the third generation to reseed the company and see it through India’s retail revolution.

Balujas deals in a wide range of lifestyle merchandise and aspirational products. The women’s footwear line comprising of boots, shoes and sandals – casuals as well as formals. It also provides kids’ line of footwear products under the categories of formals, city outdoor and outdoor leisure.

Balujas firmly believe that the organized retail sector in India is just taking shape, and there will be consolidation – with numerous players lacking footwear retail expertise having to sell or shut shop. They have already begun to see a couple of examples of this churn-out. Our brand enjoys a tremendous confidence and trust in the market and they are sure, they can convert this trust factor into patronage throughout the country. In spite of the turmoil in the malls and retail sector, they continue to go from strength to strength – maintaining a healthy growth. Apart from Balujas as a brand, they also deal in large number of third party brands such as O’Henry, Get Gorgeous, Taraah, Her Party Collection, Marrakech, Father & Son, etc.


The experience that they have gained over the decades enables them to forecast the customer preferences and demands and the strong outsourcing, infrastructure that they have built over the years in India helps them to bring newer trends and designs on the shelves faster than any other retailer.

Their long-term vision is to remain India’s most premium and preferred footwear retail company. To achieve this vision, they continue  to provide the highest quality standards at their stores and now at Fashionista- Fashion & Lifestyle Exhibition that is coming to Kanpur on 22nd,23rd & 24th September’17  at Hotel Royal Cliff where these beautiful looking footwear’s are awaiting just for you!

There was a time when people used to invest more on clothing than footwear now the buying perspective has changed, they spend equally more for footwear which provides better comfort and innovative styles to choose from.

You will be compared to rekindle your thoughts on so many shoes and just two feet at this super amazing fashion Exhibition!

It is not about how much the shoe is sold for, it’s clearly success when you know how many people are wearing your brand.
