House of Jaipur presents Bombay Dreams 2
Published: Thursday, October 13, 2011
In 2010, desirous to celebrate the finery and elegance of the Indian sub-continent, Dhisha Moorjani of House of Jaipur, brought together a team of top local designers (Meiling, Peter Elias, Heather Jones) and professionals in event management (Brian MacFarlane and Riddums Productions.) The event was held under the patronage of Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar and the venture raised more than $70,000, donated to her charity The Children's Life Fund. The success of the event, the overall appreciation by all who attended, encouraged the team to produce the event a second time.
This year, the event was held on October 18, at the Hilton Trinidad Ballroom in Port-of-Spain, again under the patronage of the prime minister. The profits from this event will be donated to the Samaan Shelter for Abused Women and Children, and the Vitas House Hospice for terminally ill cancer patients.
House of Jaipur prides itself as being one of the few showrooms in the Caribbean that celebrates the genius of the Indian artisan. Established in October 2003, House of Jaipur embraces the fusion of eastern and western culture and the influence of the eastern tradition on the lifestyles of our western counterparts.
HoJ's concept promotes Indian lifestyle and focuses not only on Indian fashion and fashion accessories but also on Indian fabrics and textiles, Indian home décor and handicrafts. HoJ also has an Indian tear room where customers can enjoy Indian snacks served with a large selection of teas. Owned and managed by Dhisha Moorjani, House of Jaipur was created through a labour of love and has prospered through the years mainly because of the good wishes and positive energies of its patrons who continue to support the fashion institution throughout the years.
HoJ represents various designers in India who create for its retail and custom made line and also represents the Trinidadian looking for a bit of Indian glitz and bling but who may not want to go very traditional.
