In the presence of Tollywood’s leading lady, Arpita Chatterjee and Sharbari Dutta, Rita Bhimani, Shyamlu Dudeja, British accessories brand ILEX London celebrated their first anniversary and launched the 2015 summer collection of leather bags and accessories at the Quest Mall store.
ILEX, founded in 1993 in London, is a British brand, which is currently available across eight countries including England, Austria, Germany and Russia. The first outlet in India is in Kolkata. Encouraging the global trend of functional fashion, the bespoke products are created in the ILEX in-house design studios in Milan and Rome.
