Bowl Bar for Anita Dongre Grassroot: A Sustainable Celebration of Fashion and Food
Designer Anita Dongre hired Bowl Bar, Mumbai’s only vegan cafe and delivery service, to cater her sophisticated soiree in celebration of the launch of her new craft-based clothing line called Anita Dongre Grassroot. The café’s spectacular, all-natural spread was the perfect complement to the eco-friendly, sustainable ethos of Dongre’s new brand.
The vegan Middle Eastern feast featured decadent baba ghanoush, baked herbed falafel balls and pink beetroot hummus, vibrant in both colour and flavor. For dessert, guests bit into pistachio encrusted dark chocolate bliss balls and rose-infused chia seed pudding sprinkled with pomegranate rubies and edible flowers. Refreshing guests throughout the evening were glasses of fresh pomegranate-infused coconut water, as well as a hot green tea and chilled rose tea.
The star-studded guest list included actress Diana Penty, who epitomized chic in a white linen Anita Dongre Grassroots pantsuit. Also spotted were actresses Dia Mirza and Raveena Tandon (who adored the beetroot hummus), designer Nishka Lulla, Mini Mathur, Maria Goretti, Shaheen Abbas and Sangeeta Bijlani, all of whom raved about our signature chia seed pudding!
It was an elegant affair to remember, the first of many such celebrations to come.
