There is more to love about the Kolkata-based designer now that she has unveiled her debut accessories line that has been designed with the same subtlety and meticulous care the brand is celebrated for. This line of accessories evolved because I believe fashion cannot be the prerogative of the privileged alone. Those will only corridor its impact. Its destiny needs to be more democratic. Its impact needs to be more universal. Its aspiration must be to be more accessible. This line of accessories is a fine way for fashion to reach beyond the privileged to those who like my sense of style but may not be looking for clothes at that point of time. This line may seem to be one of accessories on the face of it but deep within it is about access. It is also a line born from my need for style additions to our wardrobe that doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg'', explains Kiran Uttam Ghosh.
