Embassy Office Parks hosts an Inspirational Event celebrating Women

Mar 07, 2018

Embassy Office Parks hosted an inspirational event to celebrate International Women’s Day at the Hilton, Embassy Golf Links on 6th March 2018. Embassy Office Parks has been a leader in the Commercial office space, providing a truly International work experience for both corporate occupiers and park users. In line with Embassy’s philosophy of ‘Enhancing Lives’ the International Women’s Day event was introduced by Embassy Office Parks in 2016, to provide an engaging platform for women at their place of work.

 According to Research reports by McKinsey Global Institute and E&Y and Peterson Institute of for International Economics, it is interesting to note that India can increase 2025’s estimated GDP of $4.83 trillion by 16 – 60% by enabling women to participate with men. Additionally, when companies have over 30% women in Leadership, 6% increase in profit can be expected. This is an indication and a strong message to foster diversity, attract, retain and build women leadership talent across sectors.

 The 3rd edition of the Women’s Day Event organised by Embassy Office Parks invited leading women in diverse fields, to share their success stories and insights with women from across corporate organisations.  Taking inspiration from the theme of International Women’s Day 2018 - #PressforProgress, Padma Shri and National Award-winning actor, Shabana Azmi delivered an inspiring talk on ‘Women competing and rising on their own terms’. Her insights and powerful clarity on the subject had the audience in awe and wanting more. Shabana Azmi said “Men and Women are different but deserve equal opportunity. We have come a long way in India, where things are changing for the better, however the gender disparity needs to continue narrowing down. Every woman can be a catalyst for this change, by just empowering one woman in their circle of influence.

On being asked on the contradictory views of celebrating Women’s Day, Shabana Azmi stressed on the event’s importance and said “Women’s Day is to be celebrated as it is a symbol of remembering the struggles that resulted in the Women’s movement, taking actions and clearing the path for women to demand and ask for equal rights. Today, there is more opinion than information in the society and feminism needs to be looked at as asking for equal opportunity”


Rupi Kaur in Mumbai today, brought to the city by Crossword Bookstores

Mar 07, 2018

Crossword Bookstores is all set to host an evening with Rupi Kaur, an Indian poet, New York Times bestselling author, illustrator and performer. She will recite few poems from her books “The Sun and her flowers” and “Milk and Honey “self-published by her. 

Rupi Kaur is a poet, artist, and performer. Over the last 3 years, her works have taken the literary world by storm. Her new book, the sun and her flowers—an instant global bestseller, is an artistic sibling to her debut, milk and honey—America’s bestselling book of 2017.

Rupi sees her work as an articulation of this vision. She’s an eternal artist. At the age of 5, her mother handed her a paintbrush and said, “draw her heart out”. At 17, she happened upon a local open mic night where she performed her first spoken word poem. She fell in love with performance poetry that night. Rupi continued performing across Canada, while building a community of readers and poetry enthusiasts. While studying at the University of Waterloo, Rupi wrote, illustrated, and self-published her first collection, milk and honey. In the years since, milk and honey has become an international phenomenon. It’s sold over 2.5 million copies, been translated into more than 30 languages, and landed as a #1 New York Times Bestseller—where it continues to sit for over the 80th straight week. 

Rupi explores a variety of themes in her work ranging from love, loss, trauma, healing, femininity, migration, and revolution. She’s a storyteller and chronicler—a repository of community and history. There’s a simplicity and nuance to her work that has found a home in the hearts of millions. This magic is captured in her stage performances, which are magnetic musical interactions of poetry, art and theatre. Over the last 2 months, she’s gone from a New York theatrical production of the sun and her flowers to a sold-out North American tour. She’s a Forbes30 under 30, an editor of the 2016 Mays Literary Anthology of New Writing from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and one of BBC’s 100 women of 2017. Rupi hopes to continue her artistic exploration through art and poetry—searching for ways to understand and articulate.
​ ​This will be followed by a book signing session.

Date – Wednesday, 7th March 2018

Time – 7.00pm

Venue – Nehru Auditorium, Worli, Mumbai

Vito Nesta Grand Tour Collection

Mar 05, 2018

Vito Nesta presents in Paris Grand Tour, his new project of editions, story of a long journey, at times real and at times imagined, inspired by the itineraries that the young Renaissance men, just come of age, used to follow to see with their own eyes the beauty and culture that the world had to offer.

In his thirty years of age, Vito Nesta has made travelling a natural condition of himself: a childhood of Venezuelan charm carried over to a Pugliese farmhouse, a youth of research for distant colours, smells, and visions, discovered elsewhere as well as in everyday life. The result of the incessant wandering research is the emergence of an imagery of symbols and stories that evoke distant worlds, sometimes hybrid of different cultures.

In Grand Tour, the Brazilian colonies are evoked by palm trees painted in green and ochre on the surface of the Las Palmas plates, with a contrasting edge in metallic lustre: silent and dreamy atmosphere, in which even people in the distance seem to be impregnated with eternity. 

The solemnity of the burgundy, reinforced by the bright blue, is the protagonist of the Natsumi plates collection, which still reveals a timeless place with Japanese charm, in which the temples built by man are surrounded by a fairy-tale nature.

Japanese culture is an inexhaustible source of inspiration that Vito Nesta manages to carry over to Western everyday life with dazzling and seductive results, fruit of a perfect balance between past and present. This happens with the Wagasa rug: the characteristic umbrella of the Japanese tradition, made of bamboo and rice paper, transforms into a decoration element opening up into multiple fans with coloured geometric patterns.

Handcrafted carpet label, Hands, presents an Exclusive New Collection 2018

Mar 05, 2018

The new 2018 collection features both hand knotted and hand tufted carpets, designed and crafted in signature Hands techniques. Contemporariness, tradition, and history are all referenced in these collections, representing the label's repertoire and expertise.

The Savonneries Luxury Collection

A mélange of European designs descended from 17th century French aristocracy. To the elite, these wool-and-silk carpets were too precious to be walked upon. They were used, instead, to adorn the walls of stately residences. "Le plus superlatif tapis", as they'd say in Paris.

The Pashmina Luxury Collection

A much treasured wool from the high mountains of the Himalayas. Its very delicate form defines the ultimate in luxury. Immeasurably light and soft, it's easy to see why early Persians called this fibre 'soft gold'.  

About Hands:

With a legacy that spans 135 years, Hands has woven carpets for some of the world’s most prestigious palaces, luxury hotels, and residences. Known for their fine hand knotted and hand tufted carpets, Hands is today a widely recognised label in the world of premium carpets.

Hand-Painted, Oriental Blue & White Porcelain at Studio Malabar

Mar 01, 2018

 Studio Malabar brings to you a wide range of hand painted traditional Oriental porcelain artifacts to add to your home accessories.
Did you know?: Decorative elements on porcelain changed a lot over the course of the centuries. A characteristic of 15th-century blue and white porcelain, for example, is the so-called ‘heaped and piled effect’ — when the under-glaze cobalt blue concentrates in certain areas, bubbling through the surface of the glaze and turning a deep blue-black. This inadvertently gave texture, energy and shading to the design and was highly admired in the 18th century. Later potters mastered the technique of firing blue and white wares to achieve a more even cobalt blue tone. The blue varied throughout the dynasties. 
Add a little bit of history to your home with these beautifully hand painted ceramic-ware.
