India’s foremost Couturiers, Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla debuted their international label, KHOSLA JANI in the city. It was be the first time the label, which has already found aficionados in global icons like Dame Judi Dench, Beyoncé, Carrie Underwood, Gwen Stefani and Kesha, will show in India and the excitement is more than palpable.
KHOSLA JANI presented ‘The Enchanted Collection” at a soiree to launch the Volvo luxe sedan, the S90.
“We were absolutely thrilled to premiere KHOSLA JANI in India. The mood for the collection is Winter. Deep. Dark. Delicious. Enchanted spins a Fantasy and celebrates the fiery heat that resides in the iciest of palettes, from off white and beige to silvered grey, the blue of Midnight and Pitch black, this is decidedly erotic, grown up glam for the woman who always stands apart”, Share Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla.
The show was a heady experience with the duo’s trademark artistic installations as sets and an original score as soundtrack. Fifty ensembles were designed to marry the unparalleled craftsmanship of the East with the unsurpassed, cutting-edge tailoring of the West. KHOSLA JANI is a passionate experiment to create Ultimate Couture that transcends boundaries and rules and is the product of unfettered creativity. A smorgasbord of influences from across the globe including Africa, Europe, Japan and of course India. History, Geography, Architecture and Culture as inspiration for motifs and silhouettes, these are ensembles that transport us to other eras and myriad moods and destinations whilst remaining absolutely current and twenty-first century.
