This festive season, UAE-based entrepreneur Mukta Shahdadpuri brings two of India’s finest luxury exports to Dubai in an exclusive trunk show on 15 December.
Showcasing the latest collections from internationally renowned jewellery house Amrapali, alongside contemporary Mumbai-based fashion label Masaba, Mukta offers Dubai’s most savvy consumers a chance to snap up a slice of India’s most in demand and talked about labels.
After more than 30 years in the industry, Amrapali has built up a reputation that spans the globe and is very often the choice of Hollywood and Bollywood A-Listers (including Halle Berry, Drew Barrymore, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone) as well as fashion’s most in-the-know from London to Milan. Its hand-crafted jewellery takes inspiration from classical Indian art as well as India’s Mughal, Victorian and tribal ancestry and influences.
This year, Indian fashion designer Manish Arora tied up with the House to produce a stunning collection of gold-plated necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings using semi precious stones, crystal and enamel. Debuted at Paris Fashion Week, Mukta brings pieces from this collection – as well as Amrapali’s high fashion line - exclusively to Dubai.
Masaba is the eponymous line of Indian designer Masaba Gupta. Launched in 2009, Gupta is hailed as one of the nation’s brightest emerging talents. She is recognised for her unique fusion of edgy Indian prints with more contemporary and streamlined silhouettes. She has flipped the coin to produce ethnic wear with modern twists and ready-to-wear that is rooted in Indian culture.
INFO: The trunk show will take place at the Shangri-La hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road on 15 December 15, from 10am to 7pm.
