About The Book:
Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla, India’s leading Couturiers, completed 27 years in Design this year.
It has been a unique journey. One that has seen them revive and re-fashion India’s magnificent Design Legacy, reinvent it with their own creativity and establish themselves as the Vanguard of the Indian Fashion Industry. This Journey has been chronicled and celebrated in the form of two coffee table books-one on Fashion and fashion detail and the other on Interior Design.
‘INDIA FANTASTIQUE’, published by Thames & Hudson, is written by the much respected Art critic and curator, Gayatri Sinha and shot by acclaimed photographers, Ram Shergill (for Fashion) and Deidi Von Schaewen (for Interiors). Magnificently produced, it is a lush insight into the Fashion, Interiors and Art created by Abu and Sandeep. It is above all an Ode to India, their Eternal Muse.
The books were realised in the most exquisite locations across the globe, including Death Valley and Las Vegas in the USA, London, Bath and Brighton in England, Morocco and Mumbai, Jaipur and Udaipur in India.
INDIA FANTASTIQUE has already been launched at high-profile events in Mumbai, London & Paris. Mumbai was hosted by Mukesh and Nita Ambani at their fabulous residence. Antilla, Sotheby’s launched the book in London and Paris saw its release at the ultra-hip and courant, Gallerie du Passage.
About The Event
INDIA FANTASTIQUE is a celebration of both Couture and Culture. It is an ode to the Art, Craft and Creativity of India at its finest. We therefore visualise the event as being a mirror for the book. A showcase of India at its most magical. Our intention is to create a multi-layered tableau that literally brings the book alive.
