Temple bells lined the ramp and crystal chains glittered under the lights. To the drum beats and the melodious voice of Swaroop Khan, Parthiv Gohil and the graceful movements of Barkha Patel who sang and danced for each section, the evening was a mix of jewellery fashion and culture.
The show was divided into the Kumbh, Desert and Temple sections to correspond with the three jewellery collections of Asmi, Sangini and Nakshatra.
Aimed at the 21st century woman, Asmi which means I AM was in delicate contemporary jewellery designs, feminine yet striking in concept and styles. Partial to the curvilinear shapes the jewellery portrayed strength and style.
