New Delhi: Riddhima Kapoor Sahni will make her catwalk debut at London Fashion Week, opening the show for British fashion designer Helen Anthony. This is the first time the influencer and Indian jewelery designer has walked the catwalk on an international stage. Riddhima will open the show with her own creations as well as those of Anthony.
“I’ve always been proud of the shows I’ve walked for in India but I’m excited and nervous, this is my first time walking on an international platform, including London Fashion Week. I have two looks for the show but both are surprises, I trust Anthony completely so I can’t wait to see how they are,” says Sahni.
This show will be held at Parckcro in London on 19th September 2022 and will feature Riddhima X Punjab Jeweler’s exclusive jewelery alongside Anthony’s clothing. Both brands work together to bring the great design heritage of their respective regions to life and enable an artisan exchange on this world-renowned platform.
In addition, the jewelery designer is presenting her creations to a global audience for the first time. “The show is about East meets West and this collaboration is very close to my heart. It has taken numerous Zoom calls to plan this between both teams and I’m glad we’re on the same page. My collection entitled ‘Samara’ is inspired by my daughter, it’s a confluence of East and West, it has a mix of contemporary pieces as well as polki and diamond statement designs,” adds Riddhima.
A plethora of jewels made with ancient techniques such as Kundan Polki, Jadau, Minakari and others are displayed on the catwalk. Traditional yellow and white gold necklaces, earrings, bracelets and waist belts are combined with Anthony’s modern silhouettes.
