Aranyani - Goddess of the Forest

Aranyani, a luxury fashion brand based out of Bangalore, unveiled its flagship collection of bags in upscale VR Bangalore. 
Here's a photo tour of the evening of fanfare that included live mannequins, music and dance...

In Hinduism, Aranyani is a goddess of the forests and the animals that dwell within them. Beautifully hand crafted bags with exquisite hand painted motifs are Aranyani's signature look...

Resonating a myriad of colors, textures and moods from the flowers of rhododendron and poppy, in search of the Himalayan snow leopard and musk deer, right into the land of the Gompas with the ibex, this sprightly collection resonates its desire to communicate the beauty of nature to all human being...

"At Aranyani, we believe that nature is the best designer and if we, being a part of that same nature that we truly are, can reconnect and make it as personal as it should," said Haresh M Mirpuri, CEO, Aranyani, at the launch...

The evening featured a special performance by Dance Maestro Madhu Natraj and team...

Here's a video of one of the dance performances...

A pretty dancer...

The live mannequin...

The dancers continued to mesmerise...

Each Aranyani item is handcrafted to be one of its kind. No more than two items per design are released at any point for each city...

Showstopper of the evening was the beautiful, Ankeeta Rani Maharana. She was Miss Bangalore 1st runner-up in 2016...

Aranyani, the 'Goddess of the Forest' in Hindu mythology, is a personification of elegance, royalty and individuality. This amalgamation of creativity and sophistication is the result of handpicked and handcrafted leather, elegantly painted by world class Indian artisans...

I was glad to finally make the mannequin give a real smile...

Aranyani works closely with Arsutoria, the world's leading shoe and bag creation trainer and developer. Since 1947, Arsutoria has been in collaboration with companies such as Nine West, Timberland, Nike and LVMH. The cost of most of these luxury brands is prohibitive and out of reach for even upper class Indians. Aranyani sees an opportunity in this segment by manufacturing in India and utilizing the global expertise and latest technologies...

Aranyani has opened one store in Surat and two stores in Bangalore at Church Street and VR Bangalore in Whitefield.
