There was a second event to celebrate the inauguration of the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre (NMACC) at the Jio World Centre in Mumbai on Saturday (April 1), which was attended by Gigi Hadid.
The model looked breath-taking wearing a traditional sari created by Indian designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla.
Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla are highly regarded, and known for their ability to infuse Indian craftsmanship and textile heritage with European tailored silhouette, and their attention to detail.
Gigi shared on Instagram that this hand-embroidered look was a year in the making, and I can’t say that I am surprised when I look at her Kamasutra-inspired, South Indian temple jewellery cropped sleeve jacket embellished with gold beaded tassels, crystals and sequins.
This masterpiece was paired with an ivory and gold-trimmed chikankari skirt and chikan sari drape.
Usually, I wouldn’t want too many jewels with such a heavily embellished piece, but her gold bangles only served to sell the authenticity of the look.
Gigi Hadid said on Instagram, “The @nmacc.india Gala was a celebration of Indian craftsmanship, and its inspiration on fashion internationally, with the opening of the exhibit “India in Fashion: The Impact of Indian Dress and Textiles on the Fashionable Imagination,” curated by the iconic @hamishbowles!
It was my honor and joy to showcase this masterpiece designed by @abujanisandeepkhosla 🙏 this Chikankari sari was made in the Lucknow region of India, and took a year to make; each woman who crafted it specializes in a differently stitch 🤩 truly remarkable workmanship .. I’ll never forget it 💫.”
And neither will I. This is going straight on my BDOTY list.
Aquazzura Tiara sling pumps completed her look.
