She also spotted strings of diamond bracelets from Badalia Diamonds. Ishaan Khattar in an embellished Navy Tuxedo with a see through T shirt and satin silk scarf was the picture of 2023 spunky.

“Our Celestial Collections’ Starlight necklace is an intricate arrangement of diamonds mirroring the dance of stars on a moonlit night. The Galaxy Pendant is a masterful rendition of swirling cosmic nebulas, evoking a sense of wonder and mystery. Of course, the Comet Bracelet, which features a dazzling trail of diamonds mimicking the journey of a celestial visitor across the night sky.

Our designs perfectly complement the Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna Equinox Couture 23 Collection adding all the oomph and glam to make this fashion show grand!” said Ishmita Badalia, Director of Badalia Diamonds by Sashi Bhai & Golu Bhai.

The designers Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna added, “Equinox marries faith and fable, with architecture and craft to birth a collection that is equally balanced. Equinox’s patterns draw from the mathematical plotting of the sun and earth’s path, and their representation on vintage kaleidoscopic windows found across the world from Bombay to Manhattan. Much of the collection draws from long wintery walks where ancient metal fences with trellis designs were the only spot of floral hope. Couture week is the perfect place to launch a collection of artistic and craft details.”

Styled by Daniel Franklin the collection features mesmerising patterns and brings them to life in rich, unlined fabrics, and hypnotic 3D embroidery techniques. In keeping with the collection’s aesthetic, hair and make-up by Anu Kaushik features sleek hair with embellished eyes.
