Abu Jani, Sandeep Khosla

£95.00

A sumptuous fanfare to a new world of Indian high fashion

Overview

Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla have built a decades-long partnership that has included designing for India’s leading actors and actresses, working with directors on costumes for epic Bollywood films, and building a brand that exudes luxury, artistry and Indian tradition.

Known both for their fashion creations for men and women and for interior design, their reputation extends far beyond India: many international celebrities wear Jani-Khosla creations, among them Amitabh Bachchan, Dames Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, and Sophie Marceau.

Paramount in their work is their rediscovery and revival of traditional crafts, and the glorious ways in which they reinvent their heritage by redeploying Indian antiques, artefacts and vintage textiles.

This volume, revised and updated with over 50 new photographs, is a reissue of the fashion volume from the existing two-volume publication India Fantastique. Gayatri Sinha’s text explains the backgrounds to Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla’s success, complemented by numerous photographs from the duo’s private albums, including specially taken close-ups of exquisitely crafted details. It is a dazzling showcase for a whole new world of high fashion.
