Mumbai, Aug 16, It was designer Farah Khan’s first India-inspired collection and a large number of Bollywood celebrities cheered for her at the ongoing India International Jewellery Week (IIJW).
While Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone was the show-stopper, celebrities like Raveena Tandon, Dia Mirza, Malaika Arora Khan, Amrita Arora, Tusshar Kapoor, Zayed Khan and Suzanne Khan added to the bling off the ramp as well.
Titled ‘Adaayein’, the line celebrated Indian craftsmanship with intricate work in emeralds, rubies and sapphires. The line also had pieces in polki and diamond mix and Farah said it was a combination that will go well with Indian as well as western outfits.
The range had an interesting mix of necklaces, chokers, bracelets, bangles, earrings and cocktail rings.
Though Farah launched her label way back in 2004 and has around 15 years of experience in this field, this is the first time she has launched her India inspired line.
“Everything has a right time and I feel the occasion of Independence Day was apt for this line. I couldn’t have found a better day than this,” Farah told IANS after the show late Sunday.
Asked why she chose Deepika as her show stopper, Farah said: “Well she is dusky, she is beautiful and she has sharp Indian features…so I thought she is the best as a show stopper.”
