The diffusion range of traditional embroidery and fabrics for today’s multi-faceted woman has been broken into five categories: Vintage, Glam, Traditional, Bohemian and Sculpt. The clothes have zardozi details, floral embellishments and embroidery. The designer also uses Indian temple motifs. BlabberCat unveils, for the first time, Mesmerise who marked their foothold in the ethnic wear boutiques being the most hot-selling during festive season.
It is vibrant and features orchid blues, greens, reds and even saffron. Chanderi weaving, Kota fabrics, Varanasi zari work and bandhani printing adorn the racks of their boutique at The Enclave, 17/1F Alipore Road, Kolkata 700027. They are credited for coming up with a Modern Mughal and Anarkali look through their new collection. Their signature still lies in cotton, muslin, block-printed, adda work and in-house potlis.
Based on the designer’s vision each collection includes modern designs that illustrate a fresh narrative of the rich vocabulary of traditional Indian design and craft, which is synonymous with beauty, elegance and excellence.

About Mesmerise: Started Madhu Goenka and Sudha Dalmiya a decade back, their purpose and vision was far from what it is today. Sudha being a design graduate from NID was always highly appreciated for her sense in design and along with her best friend and business partner Madhu, they took part in their first big exhibition – Parampara in ITC where they just made 10 sarees to see the response. This passing thought changed their lives after.
In 2007, they announced their brand Masudha – a culmination of not only their names but their two completely different skills. The following six years lead them to a lot more appreciation, hot-selling signature pieces and loyal customers. And now with their third partner, Nidhi Rajgarhia, Mesmerise will have a wider collection of modern capes, gowns, maxi skirts and lighter range kurtas from Rs 1400-3000.
