The F.A.T. Bazaar: Exclusive blog coverage!

Recently a couple of days back, I visited Malaka Spice, one of Pune's most loved restaurants  tucked away in the quiet and ethereal surroundings of Koregaon Park. This particular visit was with a purpose; I was excited to visit the F.A.T. Bazaar held recently, by the lovely Mamta Gala. It hosted a phenomenal array of independent designers, which, to say the least, blew my mind. Let's speak with a few pictures :)

P.S. I visited the bazaar by the time it was sunset, so it's legit if you disliked the pictures. :(

Handcrafted bags by Lisa Pingale in a riot of colors. Loving the vibrant totes. Very Indianized, very inspiring.

Found a truckload of cute and quirky whatnots at some of the stores. I couldn't visit all, but I managed to click all that caught my eye! From scarves, coin purses, key rings and colored blazers, to clutches with large and bold prints and over-sized bags, everything looked so tempting, I couldn't have possibly focused on the food!

This beautiful 'dupatta' was one of the exquisite creations by Udd. They have a deluge of beautiful Sarees, skirts and other clothing in tribal inspired print.

This particular Pune-based designer Falguni Gokhale was probably my most favorite. I was smitten by her creativity. With no specific brand name, Falguni handcrafts everything purely out of hobby and love for art. If you follow my posts regularly, you would know that Malaka Spice also loves promoting art in the every form, apart from filling you with everything palatable.

Here, a beautiful trinket box, and statement jewelry that she designs on her own. Masterpieces? Yes.

Kiwi accessories were loaded with the prettiest bangles and arm candies! They had a great selection of handmade stationery for all quirk-lovers.

Shraddha  Karamchandani's Drop Dead Gorgeous was one fashionable stall! Loved the statement jewelry, bags and accessories on display.

Lively Wood and Bhoole Bisre really swept me with their quirky and out-of-the-world collectibles and home decor items. Eyeing something?

Bechain Nagri is this amazing brand with the cutest notebooks ever. It is beyond me how they come up with so much humor just through their notebooks.

Designerds had their stall loaded with bags in all shapes and sizes. While some had a vintage feel, others were contemporary and quirky. Loved their collection and I'm definitely picking some things up from them!

Did you visit the bazaar?
