Kiehl's Kolkata Store Launch - Event Pics

Kiehl's, one of my favorite skincare brands opened their first store in Kolkata last December but the official launch party was held a couple of weeks back at their Quest Mall store. The event was hosted by Anurag Tyagi, the Kiehl's brand manager and the Kolkata based fashion designer Pranay Baidya, a friend of Kiehl's. The invite said that there would be live music, drinks, Hors D'oeuvres, complimentary skincare consultation and free samples so I was definitely excited. What the invite did not mention was that it would also be a mini gathering of Kolkata's page 3 crowd!

Saheb, Mumtaz and Pranay

The store was inaugrated by actors Saheb Bhattacharjee and Mumtaz Sorcar who look much better in person!. There were flashbulbs going off everywhere and the P3 crowd walking in, trying out the products, interacting with the press and posing for pictures. There was music and delicious mini cupcakes from Rouge, savoury items from Smokehouse Deli and lots of wine, beer and cocktails. I had already done my skincare consultation a few months back so this time I was content to just interact with the Kiehl's staff who took very good care of the guests, soak in the ambience and just watch the proceedings. Kolkata does not see many launch events of beauty and makeup brands so this was definitely a good start. It was a fun event and very well organised and managed. I loved that equal care and attention was given to everyone who came in and it was not just the P3 crowd who got the VIP treatment. Every guest was handed a lovely Kiehl's tote bag and product samples.

It was a great evening spent with Kiehl's and hopefully we will have much more of these events in future. Kiehl's, are you listening? :D.

Take a look at the event pics..
