Finale at India International Jewellery Week 2012

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on August 24, 2012

Highlights of the closing ceremony at IIJW 2012

‘Indian Fashion Police’ has crossed over 2 million visits and what better way to celebrate but with a new post that features beautiful ladies like Madhuri Dixit Nene & Sonam Kapoor. Both the bollywood Divas walked the runway at IIJW 2012. Madhuri & Sonam wore Anamika Khanna outfit but it was Madhuri all the way for me. She looked absolutely amazing in this outfit which spelt ‘royalty’ all the way plus the magnificent jewels from PC Jewellers completed the look.

Sonam Kapoor channelled the ‘Rajasthan’ with this look of hers. The jewels, the outfit and of course Sonam……..a perfect combination for the face of IIJW. Love!

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on August 21, 2012

ABU JANI – SANDEEP KHOSLA’S ‘INDIA FANTASTIQUE’ UNVEILED

AT A PRIVATE PARTY AT THE RESIDENCE OF NITA AND MUKESH AMBANI

25 years in fashion deserves to be commemorated in a certain amount of style. Something Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla are more than au fait with. The Boys have chosen to mark this milestone with the publishing of a book INDIA FANTASTIQUE. A mammoth project, which has received immense support from Reliance Industries.

  An enchanted evening of celebration at the residence of Nita and Mukesh Ambani who hosted a fantastic party to celebrate  25 years of Abu and Sandeep in fashion . The spectacular evening had a guest-list naturally comprising of A listers from Industry, Cinema and the Arts such as Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan,  Sussane Roshan, Gauri Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shweta Bachchan Nanda, Karan Johar,  Kokilaben Ambani, Isha, Aakash and Anant Ambani, Amrita Singh and Sarah Ali Khan,  Anjalie Tendulkar, Kangana Ranaut, Adhuna and Farhan Akhtar, Sonalie Bendre,  Arjun and Meher Rampal, Tabu,  Deepika Padukone,  Kirron Kher,  Dipti and Raj Salgaoncar,  Shobhaa and Dilip De, Simmi Garewal,  Pinky and Sanjay Reddy, Parmeshwar and Adi Godrej, Namrata Dutt, Priya Dutt, Rakesh and Pinky Roshan, Kumaramanglam and Neerja Birla, Yash and Avanti Birla, Natasha and Adar Poonawala, Rukshana Eisa, Rita Dhody,  Tanya and Arvind Dubash, Milind and Pooja Deora, Hema Malini, Madhuri Dikshit , Kapil Sibal,  Kaajal Anand and lots more.

Fantasy and Fabulosity were the key words. There was an original Fashion theatre presentation showcasing the beautiful couture creations of Abu and Sandeep interspersed with dance acts. Sara Ali Khan and Isha Ambani were young debutants on ramp , which saw many senior models show off the new and classic lines . The highlight of the evening was the book launch jointly by Amitabh Bachchan and Nita Ambani with Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla .   It was an emotional moment as designers thanked the Ambanis and Bachchans for their support and called up on stage all of the celebrities featured in the book . The book, which is already creating waves and is available at fine bookstores across the country, was also released officially at this private and highly exclusive event.

ABOUT INDIA FANTASTIQUE

2012 marks 25 years in Fashion for Abu Jani &Sandeep Khosla.

“Abu & I thought long and hard about how we wanted to celebrate our milestone, and also about how we would use this celebration to set the vision for our creativity and ourselves in the next twenty-five. It soon became clear that a book, or rather two as it turned out to be, were the ideal vehicle.”

SandeepKhosla

INDIA FANTASTIQUE is a lush insight into the world of Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla, India’s most celebrated couturiers. A world that unites India’s ancient cultural heritage with original contemporary design. It is a work that showcases their creativity in all its myriad forms, from Fashion to Furniture. Above all it is an Ode to India as Eternal Muse. Past, Present and Future. The first volume of India Fantastique displays dozens of the duo’s impossibly elegant designs, including close-ups of exquisitely crafted details. The second volume focuses on their extensive work in interior design. Their hallmark maximalism run riot in privately commissioned interiors, which incorporate art, artifacts, antiques and vintage textiles.

Published by Thames & Hudson, INDIA FANTASTIQUE is written by Gayatri Sinha, one of India’s most reputed art critics. It features the photography of Ram Shergill (For fashion and fashion detail) and Deidi Von Schaewen (For interiors). The most exquisite locations from across the globe serve as the backdrop to the mesmerising photography.

Ultimately, INDIA FANTASTIQUE is the most lavish lifestyle smorgasbord. One that has its roots in India and shows to perfection the breathtaking talents of a much-celebrated designer duo. It is slated to become the fashion collectible of 2012.

We are unabashedly Indian in our aesthetics. And passionately in love with the rich cultural, historic and design legacy of our Land. Design is our way of paying homage to that Beauty. By taking it into the 21st century.”

Abu Jani

They are known as the Masters of Revival and Reinvention, Chikankari, Zardozi, Tharad, Mirrorwork are just some of the old that they have now made new. They are also the country’s most sought after when it comes to Interior Design. Their projects, a dazzling tableau of magnificent maximalism.

An exhibition of the designers’ work will be held at Sotheby’s,  New Bond Street, London, from 3rd to 5th September, to coincide with the launch of India Fantastique in UK .The book will be launched by Dame Judi Dench and Amitabh Bachchan in London . Designed to literally bring the volumes to life, the exhibition will be a 3-D showcase of their 25-year careers, featuring masterworks of couture, craft, textiles and art, juxtaposed with sumptuous photographic highlights from the books. This will be followed by a Paris launch in October 2012

25 years in Design has seen them achieve many a dream. And as they bask in this moment, there is no greater tribute they can pay to their Journey, than dreaming anew. Always bigger, always better…
