A unique art exhibition celebrating art and fashion was recently held at Shibapriya’s. The art exhibition named Her Stories was inaugurated by eminent actress Gargi Roy Choudhury. Many eminent personalities like Usha Ganguly, Sudarshan Chakrraborty, Sayani Dutta, Purbayan Chatterjee and Riddhi Bandopadhyay graced the occasion.


Shibapriya Sen’s designer label is titled “Shibapriya’s”. The label has the selection of prêt and couture line and specializes in bridal wear. This prêt or ready to wear line is a selection of classic silhouettes in Indian, Western and Indo-Western styles. This range emphasizes on comfort as well as style. The couture line on the other hand focuses on the party wear segment which is influenced by the regional handicrafts like Rabaari, Kantha, Parsi and zardozi.


Dressed in a long flowing Anarkali, the designer looked pretty and beautiful. “The exhibition focuses on the range of Lucknowi and Mughal Couture. Chikankari and zardozi are the prominent hand embroidery styles found in the couture collection. The silhouettes are mostly Anarkalis and Shararaswhich are of timeless appeal. They are mostly in white, black, grey and beige color. The fact why I selected the Lucknowi and Mughal tradition is simply because they have a great influence not only on the food, but also on the dress and culture of the country. Hence I selected their style for the making of the clothes in this collection. Moreover there is a renewed interest in shararas and lehengas among the people after Kareena Kapoor wore one in her marriage. So I thought of making easy to wear ones for my customers”. Shararas start from five thousand onwards, the Lucknow rage starts from fifteen hundred and Anarkalis start from five thousand onwards.


The project has been conceptualized by popular elocutionist Sujoy Prasad Chatterjee. The exhibition began with Usha Ganguly narrating a story by Mato in sync with the fashion line created by Shibapriya.


With summer in its full potential, this spring-summer collection will be a great option for many customers to select their clothes from.
