Ahluwalias’ In Tootsie Land!
A Report By Ruchi Mukherjee
More than 150 fashionable ladies gathered at Tootsies to support the charity Recipe For Success that often host events like dinners with fashion designers. Just a few months back it was Dinner with Nicole Miller, Naeem Khan and this time it was Dress For Dinner with husband-wife duo Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia’s label Ankasa. The brand has quite a huge fan following in Hollywood and recently Alexis Bledel was spotted wearing a design from the duo’s Resort 2010 collection.
The event, a wrap up of the 2010-11 Season of Dress For Dinner, fabulously chaired by Roz Pactor and Isabel David. With only $50 per person, guests got a treat with hors d’oeuvres generously provided by Chef Kacey Krystyniak & Fox Hollow and cocktails by SlimRitas followed by a fashion show of this cutting edge couple’s latest 2011 Fall Collection.
The collection can be described as very eclectic with dark winter tones of maroon, burnt orange with beige and also shades of white. Fashionistas present included Elizabeth Abraham, Divya Brown, Simran Rihal, Swati, Tanaz Choudhry, Merritt Beck, Cesar Galindo and many others from the fashion scene in Houston.
