Stylists and celebrities are turning to international designers for statement-making pieces. Coveted Indian fashion designers Sandeep Khosla and Abu Jani have created custom pieces for the likes of Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez, and their designs made their way to one of the most talked-about weddings of the fall season.
When actress Priyanka Chopra wed singer Nick Jonas, the designing duo created Chopra’s multi-hued organdy ensemble, inspired by an AJSK vintage collection, for a pre-wedding mehndi (a Hindu wedding ritual when close friends and women in both families gather around while the bride has elaborate henna designs created on her hands and feet). Referred to as “fabulously folksy,” her outfit for the occasion was paired with jewelry that was also designed by Khosla Jani, crafted by Saboo for AJSK by Saboo – described as “an exceptional heirloom piece of very fine rubies collected over generations.” Jonas wore a Khosla Jani-designed aqua bakhiya kurta. khoslajani.com.
