Product Description

Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla have built 25-years 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.

Stylishly packaged in a slipcase, this two volume publication is an unparalleled showcase of Abu Jani and Sandeep Khoslas exuberant fashion and interiors, illustrated with hundreds of specially commissioned photographs.

Both books feature prefaces and appearances by luminaries of Bollywood, Hollywood and Indian high society, while texts by writer Gayatri Sinha explain the background to the designer duos success, complemented by numerous photographs from their own private albums.

Paramount in both books 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, artifacts and vintage textiles.

This publication packed with substance as well as style is a sumptuous fanfare for a whole new world of high fashion. It is sure to become a collectible.
