The Quarry Gallery Felicitates Women Power with Sussanne Khan
Celebration and collaboration were in the air at The Quarry Gallery on International Women’s Day, March 8, 2019. As an ode to women power. Sussanne Khan gathered an eclectic bunch of friends and decor aficionados to host a special night set in the midst of luxury marble. The Quarry celebrates woman power carved in stone and their accomplishment in design, an industry which was hitherto male-dominated.
Sussanne Khan teamed up with The Quarry, curators of luxury marble and rare onyx in décor, to raise a toast to womanhood. Kalki Koechlin performed a one-of-a-kind (monologue) at the event, co-hosted by Prachi Thadani and Reshma Ajbani.
“The Quarry celebrates the way women play their myriad roles in all facets of life with equal power and ease. We commend how women have excelled in nurturing families but also having built professions with verve and vigor. To commemorate this remarkable journey of breaking stereotypes, The Quarry joins the global celebration of womanhood,” says Rupesh Shinde, Founder & Chief Curator, The Quarry.
Adds Sussanne Khan, “I’m so excited about my collaboration with the Quarry. As a designer, it’s a real joy to come to the Quarry to be inspired by the lavish variety of stone and marble which one can only find here. This evening we are going to celebrate womanhood and enjoy just being ourselves all within this beautiful marble lab, the first of its kind in India”.
