Speaking about the inaugural edition, Mr. Akash Sheth – Managing Director, Luxury Lifestyle Weekend shared, “The Luxury Lifestyle Weekend promises three days of exclusive, never-seen-before luxury experiences. As much as luxury is about products, it is also about intangible nuances that inspire, delight and amaze you. With Luxury Lifestyle Weekend, we have curated experientials that will help existing and aspiring consumers of luxury engage and connect with the brands more deeply than ever before. Every brand has presented an engagement that will encourage all guests to go beyond browsing and deep-dive into the story and philosophy behind a product.
Presenting an intimate visual layout, LLW has worked with eminent architect Rooshad Shroff to transform the venue to present both expanse and experience for guests. Over 100 Indian and international luxury brands have set up bespoke pop-up experiences across verticals like Art, Automobiles, Decor, Real-Estate, Hospitality, Jewelry and Watches, to name a few.
