unnamed (1)

Donear launches its all new wrinkle-free fabric collection, for those always on the move!

Available in a plethora of colors such as classics like navy and black to new-age colours like oranges and purples, this fabric range is comfortable, and easy to wear and care.

This range presents wrinkle-resistant, also colloquially known as ‘permanent press’ fabrics consisting of textiles that have been treated to resist external stress and hold their shape. These fabrics don’t need to be ironed and are wash-and-wear and meant for easy care.

A research was conducted with the current working population and a valuable insight was that their appearance was linked to their performance. The need to ‘look good to do good’ was apparent. This insight triggered a range of wrinkle-resistant finishes – developed keeping in mind the multi-tasking routine of consumers these days and how they need to look and feel presentable right through the day.

The Donear range emphasises cotton wrinkle-free fabrics, with cotton fibres being spun into yarn, then woven into fabric, followed by dyeing, and finally the fabric is treated with a ‘cross-linking’ resin. Cross-linking is a chemical process that to produce textiles with wrinkle resistance by crosslinking of cellulose chains to stop the molecules from moving when in contact with water or other environmental stress. This means that they fabrics will be resistant to wrinkles.

Donear has always striven for quality in its fabric range – along with a strong design sense, there has been investment in technology to develop finishes for wrinkle resistance.

Donear is proud to have a very large variety of fabrics with this finish across myriad colours – perfect for any occasion. There are a range of blacks/ blues/ greys/ browns for formal wear, pastels and pop colours like yellows/ oranges/ greens/ purples for fancy wear (parties/ festivities etc) and some prints for casual wear. The range truly has something for everyone.

Commenting on the fabric range, Ajay Agarwal (Director, Donear) said, “Our exceptional wrinkle-free fabric is a perfect amalgamation of comfort and style. The characteristics of easy wear and care, makes the range even more popular. With our manufacturing unit at Surat, producing the finest quality wrinkle free fabrics, we endeavour to constantly innovate and present the high quality fabrics to our consumers.”

Male Duo Wins VMate’s #HappyValentinesDay challenge

Fahad Ahmad - car winner of Valentine challenge

VMate has announced a male duo as the winner of the recently concluded #HappyValentinesDay challenge, which witnessed a massive participation and creation of more than 8.5 million videos. These two men would be awarded a brand new Maruti Suzuki Alto car. They were adjudged the winner of contest primarily because of their couple concept videos.


When the duo came across the contest, the first decision they made was that their creation wouldn’t be a usual drill, and they drew their inspiration from males playing female characters famous on Indian television. To come on top of millions of videos, they broke away from the usual norm of a boy and a girl celebrating Valentine’s Day. Instead, they tried role play wherein one of the males dressed up and performed as a woman. This way it worked with the audience and their Valentine’s Day videos got more than 1 million views.


Fahad and his partner created multiple videos as part of the contest. In one of the videos, Fahad’s partner played his wife and they smartly used the exclusive video sticker featuring actress Sunny Leone. Sunny could be seen getting a cup of morning tea for Fahad and asking him to get ready for Valentine’s Day celebration. That is when the performer playing Fahad’s wife shuts him up and stops him from daydreaming. The funny videos pleased several VMate users.


After being honoured at the award function organised by VMate in New Delhi, Fahad owed his success to his mother, who supported him through thick and thin. He further acknowledged the support of his siblings. “My brothers, sister and friends help me in making videos. I wish to bring smiles to my audience, and I want to be known for my comedy. VMate is helping me a lot in my journey,” he said.


He added, “I know mine as well as VMate’s potential. I am giving my 200%, making 15-20 videos daily and participating in all the contests. I am extremely happy to win a car.”


Lauding the duo, VMate Associate Director Nisha Pokhriyal said, “Valentine’s Day is a festival mainly for couples, but on VMate, two male creators won the top prize – a Maruti Suzuki Alto car – by joining the #HappyValentinesDay campaign. The differentiator in their videos was a man playing woman. It is tough to perform but the concept has often clicked with the Indian audience. I am sure they would be loved by the audience just like Gutthi or Sapna are adored by the Indian viewers.”

Love is.” A unique feature of the book is that it contains Lavlin’s spontaneous dialogue in verse with Amrita Pritam, dating to 1992.

In the words of Mr. IK Gujral former Prime Minister of India – “Lavlin is a scholar of high calibre.” Indeed, her poetry reflects her depth of understanding of human nature, the language being simple and the ideas being effectively communicated to the readers.

Huawei announces the winner for the #P20ProBattleLeague Photography Challenge

Huawei Consumer Business Group in association with Dabboo Ratnani conducted a month-long photography challenge using Huawei’s latest flagship device- Huawei P20 Pro. The contest provided an opportunity to young talented photographers to redefine the meaning of visual expression while celebrating the power of mobile photography.

With Huawei P20 Pro’s cutting-edge technology pushing the boundaries of creative mobile photography, the contestants captured powerful and provocative images. As part of the activity, the company has announced deckle_Edge (from Instagram) as the winner of #P20ProBattleLeague, finally concluding the contest today.

The winner has been gratified with an Amazon gift voucher worth INR 50,000 and is also getting his winning story featured in a specially curated Coffee Table Book by Huawei. The book will also feature selected works of the contestants and that of the ace celebrity photographer, Dabboo Ratnani.

Centered on handpicked themes, such as Macro-B&W, Windows, Metal and Street, the contest unfolded in 2 phases. In the first phase, Ratnani chose the top photographer for every theme from a select list of 20 contestants. Successively, the second phase saw the four theme winners pitted against each other for the final round.

Talking about his experience with the device and the #P20ProBattleLeague, Dabboo Ratnani said, “I was amazed by the creative expressions that I witnessed as part of the contest. The whole concept of empowering imagination with technology was extremely interesting to begin with. The Huawei P20 Pro is the best Android device for photography aficionados, thanks to its variable 0.95 aperture, monochrome mode and zoom stabilization. The fact that no software tweaking of the final image is required is especially outstanding.”

Often compared to a DSLR camera for its three Leica branded rear cameras, 5X hybrid zoom and the large 1/1.7 light sensor, the Huawei P20 Pro offers significant advantages over competition while shooting in various degrees of illumination.

The final 4 contestants were asked to share a single picture describing their ‘journey of becoming a Pro’. The contest was promoted across social media, with prime focus on Instagram, using the hashtags #P20ProBattleLeague and #SeeMooore. As a result, tremendous buzz was generated among photography enthusiasts.

“The P20 Pro Battle League was a thrilling experience for me and I would like to thank Huawei and Dabboo Ratnani sir for giving me this opportunity to exhibit my talent, and simultaneously enhance it. I absolutely loved the experience of using the Leica powered triple camera, especially the aperture mode. I haven’t seen such depth, clarity and color rendering output in any smartphone device so far. The light painting mode, including the silky water functionality, is absolutely mind-blowing. I reckon this device will make mobile photography a stunning experience for the user.”, said deckle_Edge, the winnerof the contest.
