Sharmila Tagore Dazzled The Ramp

By Suparna Chakaraborthy

Bollywood actor Sharmila Tagore walked the ramp at International Jewellery Week (IIJW) here on Wednesday boasting exquisite jewelery.

The collection consisted of Modern art jewelery pieces designed by Radhika Singh and Sayanta Sarkar displayed. Intricately carved necklaces, armlets, and chains of uncut diamonds on corded strands and chunky gold bracelets were dazzled on the ramp.

Sharmila Tagore revealed that she connects with the jewelery very well as they have a touch of her native place, Kolkata.

"When I was asked to come and be the show stopper here, I accepted because there are couple of reasons behind this. As you know my daughter Sabah Ali Khan is also a jewelery designer and she is also participating," said Tagore.

"Suyanta is the seventh generation jeweler from his family and his family happens to be from Kolkata, so that is a huge connection and you must have gathered that from sindoor and the music and everything which had that Kolkata touch and of course the jewelery was fantastic," she added.

The International Jewelery Week showcases the collections of 30 designers, including Farah Khan Ali, Varun D. Jani, Bina Goenka and Rhea Nasta. Well-known jewelery brands like Mirari, Gitanjali, Amrapali, Tanishq and Ganjam are also participating.

Buyers from Japan, Russia, Britain, China, Italy, Malaysia, Libya, Morocco, Iran, the Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan are taking part. The celebration of jewelery comes to an end on Thursday.
