Here is an attempt to bring the old world Bengal to life as we pay homage to the mesmerizing arts and crafts of the state.
The women of Ghosh Bari are known for their progressive attitude, their exquisite saris and the cuisines they prepare in the kitchen. The friendship between them is their biggest strength. As they gather to prepare for Durga Puja, their house fills up with savory items, and the most delicious smells emanating from the kitchen. Intricate alpana patterns adorn the floor and brass tunics burn incense incense. Gorgeous women are dressed in Athapouri style saris paired with exaggerated sleeveless blouses inspired by the Victorian era, which adorn their legs and palm. They laugh and sing together, their eyes nourish a thousand dreams, create memories that will last a lifetime.
