Hosted at Toast Pasta Bar in Mumbai, the soirée put together the best across businesses.

Harper's Bazaar India

We associate December with celebrations and with that comes, fashion and culinary indulgences—two of the things we absolutely love. This Sunday, Harper’s Bazaar India hosted the first edition of the 'Bazaar India's Digital Editor’s Lunch' at Toast Pasta Bar, situated inside the heart of Mumbai’s culinary haven.

The soirée saw an assemblage of the best across businesses coming together to celebrate the launch of the website of Harper’s Bazaar India, over a meal of fine European cuisine. It was an afternoon brimming with camaraderie, gustatory delight and conversations on fashion, culture, food, art, sustainability and more.

Apart from culinary bliss, a lot of food for thought was brought to the table by the guests who are spearheading their individual careers. It was an afternoon to remember, which will be hopefully the first of many such lunches.
