When you think of Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla, certain images instantly come to mind – bright colours, swirling fabric, elegant cuts and stunning use of gold embroidery.

At The Golden Peacock, a special evening of couture presented by the designer duo for the Sahachari Foundation, they showcased their incredible journey in the field of fashion.

Seen here is model Jesse Randhawa in a figure hugging anarkali that ends in a voluminous skirt that’s both feminine and flirty.
