My heartfelt congratulations to Neha Agrawal and Shagun Bansal for hosting QALA ka Qila, an exquisite show in our city. There is no lack of talent in this industry and I hope such shows will bring out more local talent to the forefront of this mega Indian Fashion Industry.


Neha Agrawal Co-founder QALA India shared, “Indore has been knowledgeable and well versed with the fashion industry since a long time. Being the business & trading hub of Madhya Pradesh, the residents are frequently travelling to Delhi, Mumbai, and Kolkata to fulfil their festive fashion and home décor requirements. QALA India is posed to bring these designers and their products to the doorstep of Indore audience. We aim to highlight the local designers and artisans to give them a much needed platform within the city to display their skills and to show their product range.”


Shagun Bansal Co-founder QALA India further added, “Being from a small city like Raipur, I always admired my mother or my grandmothers love for traditional fabrics and the intricacies in their creation. It was this knowledge that drove my interest in different weave, cloth and historical artefacts which opened my eyes to new possibilities beyond styling. It was with the mindset QALA India was born to promote local weavers, weaves and artisans to support their talent and to give them national exposure.
