amer-fort (2)

 

A skyline of golden vastness, the sprawling ramparts and intimidating palaces: Jaipur the land of gracious hosts and sumptuous feasts has inspired a whole range of creative people.

No doubt, the reason that the city has made it to the UNESCO’s Creative City Network as City of Crafts and Folk Arts in the year 2015.

Going back to 18th century, Jaipur city was called the House of the 36 Industries (Chattis Karkhanas) for being a historical trade centre largely supported by crafts and folk art, including painting, carving and jewellery and sustaining its rich cultural heritage, through its traditions, culture, festivals and fairs.

Since Jaipur is known for its vintage-inspired yet the exquisite style of jewellery across the world and from being an emerald cutting destination to the hub of fine art like meenakari, jadau and gemstone jewellery, the city has come a long way!

In virtue of this, Jaipur also attracts global jewellery business houses as well as designers through the grand and distinctive jewellery shows like JJS December Show and JAS the Jewellers Association Show April Show that is taking city’s gems and jewellery to newer heights.

The Things that happened in Jaipur in 2019 and we can never forget

The wonderful year 2019 is soon going to get over in a few days. But, before we all step into another eventful year, which will have its own bag of challenges and goodies, let’s have a quick look into the past and take on this ride to cherish so many changes that Jaipur went through in 2019. Hop on..

  1. UNESCO World Heritage SiteUNESCO
    Jaipur is a smart city now with all the techno advances in traffic, residences and public places. But what keeps it among the top-notch cities to travel is its heritage character! In the year 2019, the Pink City received its much-deserved title of the “World Heritage Site! Yes, if you missed it let us let you, not just a few monuments but the entire Jaipur is UNESCO World Heritage Site!

 

2. Congress Government

Congress Gov

Although the swap of government is nothing new to us Jaipurites, this year with the commencement of Lok Sabha elections, the Congress candidate, Mr Ashok Gehlot became the Chief Minister of Jaipur.

 

3. All-women Gandhi Nagar Railway Station

Gandhi Nagar Railway Station

This became the moment of honour for all of us. In a step towards women empowerment, the Indian Railways have handed over the Gandhi Nagar railway station to an allwomen crew. And, Jaipur’s Gandhi Nagar became the country’s first allwomen railway station. Couldn’t be more proud!

 

4. Cleanest Railway Station

Cleanest Railway Station

Jaipur Municipal Corporation’s response to Swach Bharat Abhiyaan is not limited to residential, commercial areas or streets but the Railway Stations too took it seriously. To treat single-use plastic, bottle crushing machines have been planted at Jaipur Junction and Gandhinagar Jaipur stations and the staff on duty is always on their toes to keep the railway stations clean. As a result of the management’s hard work and travellers’ co-operation, Jaipur Junction has topped the tally among 720 stations covered all over the country.

 

5. Friendliest Cities in the World

Friendliest Cities

“Padharo Mhare Des”- we Jaipurites not only say this metaphor but figuratively, live it! With welcoming gestures and warm hospitality, Jaipur wins the hearts of travellers from across the globe. In an international survey, which took place early in the year, the ‘pink cityhas been ranked 35th in the list of 50 cities from all over the world, for being welcoming, “student-friendly”, and “popular on the tourist trail”. Hence, giving you more reasons to travel to Jaipur doubt free 🙂

 

6. Jaipur rated as most Instagrammed UNESCO World Heritage Site

Most Instagrammed

Our city is known for its old-world charm – usually referred to as ‘pink city’ owing to its iconic colour of buildings. In the year 2019, a new study from The Latin America Travel Company has analyzed that Jaipur is the most popular UNESCO Sites according to Instagram. We were not surprised. With a gamut of mesmerizing monuments, spellbinding palaces and intriguing streets, Jaipur would always be on the insta feeds of many!

 

7. City Palace opens Gudliya Suite for tourists

City Palace Gudliya Suite

For the first time, Jaipur’s City Palace- the abode of the Royals, opened the doors of its exclusive suite for the connoisseurs of luxury in 2019!

8. Dravyavati River Front

Dravyavati River

Jaipur got its long lost artificial river, Dravyavati river that was inaugurated in October with three mega parks which gave Jaipurites a new hub for adventure and fitness activities. 2019 bought another feather in Jaipur’s cap when Dravyavati River Front was felicitated with the ‘Best Smart Wastewater Project Award’ at Smart City Empowering India Awards.

 

9. The wave of Clubbing Culture

Until last year, Jaipur did not have a very sound and vibrant nightlife like Berlin or Barcelona but the year 2019 gave us party hoppers all the good reasons to rejoice! With the entry of sensational nightlife check-ins like Playboy and Club Trove, Jaipurites have got more reasons to don their swanky clothes and hit the dance floor!

10. Forever 21

Forever21

The month of Love, “February” showered us with Los Angeles’ high street fashion through the launch of Forever 21 store at WTP! Although Jaipur is the Paris of India when it comes to shopping, but hey, Forever 21 is not just another brand, it is a statement. After the launch, we can think the colours of spring in Los Angeles California, think pastels, high waist trousers coupled with linen shirts and dresses with palm leaves printed on them.  Yayy!!

11. Nykaa

nykaa

Nykaa has definitely made our lives easier with amazing discounts on different cosmetic brands, at one place. And when Jaipur got its very own Nykaa outlet, the girls in here couldn’t resist being super excited. So, the year 2019 has been a landmark year for all the fashion and style enthusiasts when the girls can stop tapping their phones and get the real feel of shopping cosmetics from Nykaa!

Adding another destination to purchase premium make-up and skincare products, the revolutionary French make-up brand took the flight to Jaipur in 2019!

Jaipur with its incredible history , art and culture, is now adding one more feather to its cap by hosting various Fashion shows.

One of the leading and the most prestigious fashion institutes, Pearl Academy, recently organised an astonishing fashion show in its annual grading event “Portfolio 15” at Hotel Clarks Amer, Jaipur. And guess who was the esteemed Guest of Honor? India’s most successful fashion designer – Manish Malhotra !!

Portfolio ’15 presented more than 100 innovative designs by its graduating students which were a perfect amalgamation of Western and Indian styles by these talented and young fashion designers. With high beats of music in the background, the crowd was thrilled and ecstatic. The show witnessed a huge audience which encompassed young fashion enthusiasts , HNIs and some leading fashion designers of the industry.

The collections showcased off beat color combinations and clearly a lot of experimentation was done with the outfits. The skirts, maxies, blouses were definitely a delight to watch.  The designers also displayed a concept ‘Monochrome’ which defines one color or the shades of one color in the show.

IMG_4757

The most intriguing collection that was seen on the ramp was ‘The Post Apocalyptic Bride’ by Pooja Verma that focused on post-apocalyptic fashion using materials that remain behind even when everything else decays. The collection was impressive given that it was created out of nothing and the creativity and imagination of the designer was beyond beautiful and eccentric.

The designers also portrayed the look of a hunter man in the wasteland with the  concept ” Gypsy” which showcased Junglee and Raw Look.

Apart from depicting the designer clothes based on various themes , there was a round which showcased attractive “Jewelry” by famous designers.
