KARACHI: High-end fashion and jewellery have a long history together.
The links between the two industries - regardless of the scope - has made for years of Hollywood actors looking like a million dollars at the Oscars; some great haute couture shows and jewellery is a godsend for stylists who need to find the perfect gems to go with their client’s outfits. The same links have been made stronger with Kiran Aman, who opened her jewellery store in Karachi this week.
The store, located at 76 Old Clifton, features an eclectic display of Aman’s signature style of innovative rings, charm bracelets and modern takes on chokers and necklaces. But more so than that, it was Aman’s collaboration with designer Sonya Battla, who is the brand ambassador for the label that has forged a new connection between the art of designing clothes and gems.
Aman spoke out about how the two had the same values, and also thanked her clients and friends for having supported her over the past few years. Spotted at the event were the city’s crowd of socialites and Aman’s friends, including designers Bunto Kazmi, Nida Azwer, Maheen Karim and Huma Adnan, Strings vocalist Faisal Kapadia with his wife Seema, photographers Amean J and Izdeyar Setna and the model Ayaan.
Even though the balmy heat made the event - held in the 76 Clifton garden - a rather uncomfortable affair, the tamarind concoction being served was a delightful change from the usual variety of mystery mocktails.
