Making headlines earlier this week was their one-of-a-kind red carpet look for Deepika Padukone at the Cannes Film Festival 2022. Championing an off-white hue, Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla gave the traditional drape a contemporary spin, and at the same time reimagined the meaning of a ruffled saree. With pleated ruffles, an intricately embroidered pearl and crystal bustier and a statement-making pearl collar, we can surely say the customer creation exuded perennial elegance.

Staying true to their design ethos the creation was unlike anything we’ve seen before. Winning the hearts of a million around the globe with the ensemble, the outfit received all the praise it truly deserved — and quite frankly it was the talk of town!
