Sara Ali Khan walks for Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla’s ‘Blend’
India's leading designer duo, Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, showcased an exclusive collection of their couture at the Blender's Pride Fashion Tour in Delhi.
The collection titled ‘Blend’ celebrates the diverse moods, cultures, techniques, and textiles of India.
Actor Sara Ali Khan opened the show for the designer-duo wearing al hand-embroidered burgundy georgette skirt, paired with a taffeta top with double-layer puff sleeves.
Commenting on the collection, Abu Sandeep in a joint statement said:“We are passionate about India. About the diversity she represents. Of tradition, culture, history, craft. 'Blend' is our ode to this remarkable wealth. Our design expression celebrates the myriad, distinct, beauty of each and brings it all together as a unified collection. This is India. This is who we are. A magnificent whole comprised of so many distinct parts.”
“This collection is also our Ode to the Spirit of One Love. It’s about breaking free, ditching the rules and borders that separate. Love is inclusive. We had transgender, crossdressers, LGBTQI people wearing our collection. The Men were in heels and women in flat juttis. Fashion and Love are about freedom,” the duo added.
Talking about the collection, Sara Ali Khan added: “Their work is priceless since it resonates with all generations. Their eclectic theme, “my blend, my pride” brings out a quirky vibe that breaks the conventional paradigms.”
Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla launched their eponymous brand in 1986, specialising in couture occasion wear. The brand is known for its revival of heritage craft traditions including Chikankari, Zardozi, and Tharad and the brand is based in Mumbai.
