 Fashion designer Pranay Baidya hosted a beautiful lunch to celebrate the Poilo Baishakh, Bengali New Year, at Rooh, Delhi. The designer made sure the menu had his signature touch by making the intimate ten course fusion Bengali luncheon, a thing to remember. The menu was specially created by Chef Sujan Sarkar at the capital's new restaurant, ROOH located at 1 Style Mile, Mehrauli, Delhi which has become the hub for Indian couture wear (read mostly bridal wear) and some restaurants that has been creating the buzz in Delhi with its new age menu among other traditional international cuisines.

Baidya made sure the menu had the Bengal imprint just as his sarees and kurtas when he included the puchkas adding the international swipe with passion fruit flavour in the juice which burst in the mouth with fresh flavour. There was also the khichuri with pumpkin, tempered with broken black roasted rice that stole the heart with its simplicity yet gelled so well with the fashionistas, the snobbish fashion lifestyle media and socialites who probably thinks the khichuri was an anti viral medication. And that's just a few interesting ones that we are mentioning here. Take a detailed look at the menu and you will get the gist.

For Wedding Fables it was a remarkable first interaction with the designer who takes traditional weaves worn by Bengali ladies and gives it his creative twist using traditional embroidery and other conventional surface beautification. The few pieces he showcased for the guests at the venue were beautiful kotas, jamdaanis with prints and embroideries teamed with traditional blouses. His label does focus on bride and grooms,

His Summer Festive collection of Sarees and Kurtas are an ode to the 18th century royal textile from Madhya Pradesh - Maheshwari. The collection titled Calcutta 1964, looks to wardrobes of heroines from Satyajit Ray's cinema in the 1960's. Pure zari stripes in silver and gold interplay with feminine floral prints in a refreshing summer palette of mint green, lemon yellow, powder blue, nude and ivory. "I grew up watching films like  Charulata, Mahangar, Jalshaghar with my grandmother, and little did I know their cinematography and costumes would have such a lasting impression on me", says Baidya.
