India Fantastique: Fashion
Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla
Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla have built a 28-year 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 Dames Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, Sophie Marceau and Sarah Brown. Paramount in their work is Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla’s rediscovery and revivification of once moribund traditional crafts, and the glorious ways in which they make use of local artisans and reinvent their heritage by redeploying Indian antiques, artefacts and vintage textiles. This book is a sumptuous fanfare for a whole new world of high fashion.
