How India and the Middle East Have Influenced Each Other’s Fashion Industries Over the Years

How India and the Middle East Have Influenced Each Other’s Fashion Industries Over the Years

When one considers everyday dress in India, the salwar — a pair of loose-fitting, drawstring trousers, and the kameez — a tunic worn with a dupatta — a scarf also used as a head covering — probably come to mind. The roots of this dress style can be attributed to Persia, home of the Mughals, the Muslim dynasty that ruled India from the early 16th to the mid-18th century. The Arabian Gulf played an important role, too. The two regions not only have a geographic proximity to each other, but have been trading partners for centuries. The fact that the word kameez comes from Arabic is one such proof. India has always been known for its textile traditions, and its goods would reach central Europe via the ports of the Gulf. Scientists from the Museum of Natural History in Paris, while examining remnants from UNESCO world heritage site Mleiha, found that the earliest cotton in the Arab world came from Northwestern India, and the oldest surviving pieces of chintz, a calico cloth decorated with woodblock prints that became popular in Europe in the 1600s, was found in Egypt. Textiles, crafts, and silhouettes from India became a source of inspiration, with many of the mirror and metal embroidery forms in Arab dressing traditions influenced by savior fair coming from its South Asian trading partner. In turn, the motifs and decorative forms of this region began to influence embroidery patterns in India. The cultural exchange between the two is ancient and can still be seen today.

Contemporary Indian designers have been borrowing and showing their appreciation of the Middle East for years. Rohit Bal, known as the enfant terrible of Indian fashion, made the jalabiya part of his design repertoire since his early days in the 1990s. Manish Malhotra, Bollywood’s go-to costumer, designed his 2018 couture collection ‘Zween’ in celebration of Middle Eastern culture. Meanwhile, Indian Gen Z’s favored silhouette is the kaftan. In return, the Middle Eastern region has welcomed Indian designers with open arms; fashion shows and pop-up events are regularly hosted in the region.

When Indian celebrities are looking to make a statement on the red carpet at international events, time and again they turn to designers based in the Middle East. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is known for her love of Michael Cinco and Elie Saab, and Priyanka Chopra has been photographed in Zuhair Murad on multiple occasions. Deepika Padukone, who wore a custom-made Zuhair Murad gown to her wedding reception in 2018, stepped out onto this year’s Cannes Film Festival red carpet wearing an orange, one-shoulder gown by Ashi Studio. It was her most well-received look of the festival. The Paris-based Saudi label has been worn by many well-known Indians including Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and heiress Isha Ambani. “There is a similar aesthetic in terms of taste and culture, and both regions love their glamor,” comments the couturier. Celebrity stylist Shaleena Nathani who styles Padukone, adds, “The region has a strong love of Bollywood, so they have a good understanding of our celebrities and occasions, and this does help. As a stylist, the reason I turn to Middle Eastern designers is because of their cut, it flatters an Indian body.” She chose the Ashi dress as it had drama, something she considers essential when walking the red carpet, and was both sensual and modest. This is a balance Middle Eastern designers have always understood.

One such designer is Reema Ameer, who is of Sri Lankan and Lebanese descent. She moved to Dubai 16 years ago, working from her studio at home in Dubai. Nathani notes that both regions have a heritage of craftsmanship and bespoke detailing, an important binding factor between the dressing styles. Nathani recently received much attention in India as actress Neetu Kapoor, the mother of actor Ranbir Kapoor, has been wearing her designs on repeat. “If European clients are more understated and individual in their approach to style, the Middle Eastern and Indian markets prefer a more groomed image. In that vein, there is a shared appreciation for hand-crafted textiles from beadwork to embroidery, which automatically ups the luxe factor, too. My Arab and Indian clients share a love for color and sparkle. I would say that they are both daring in their sense of style, and always open to trying new things.”
On the other side of the Arabian Sea are the Indian designers for whom the Gulf is almost an extension of their own market, with many Indian designers looking to open stores in Dubai, and seeking to make in-roads into Qatar, Kuwait, and Saudi. Designers Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Manish Malhotra, and Suneet Varma all come to the region to host pop-ups, with Mukherjee’s jewelry instore at Dubai-based concept, Bayt Damas. Mumbai-based Anita Dongre, one of India’s most successful designers, who retails on the Ounass platform and has participated in pop-ups in the Gulf, comments, “This is a region where old-world traditions and charms meet cutting-age technology and lived experiences. Like India, there is a value for culture and tradition, but people are also happy to celebrate 21st-century progress and modernity. There is an overlap in both regions’ dressing styles.” Delhi-based Rajdeep Ranawat, who retails in a multi-brand boutique in Dubai’s Jumeriah and who is also part of the Ounass edit, adds, “There is a vast South Asian community living here today, they are bound to visit boutiques and exhibitions for their social wardrobe essentials.” This explains why pop-ups in cities like Dubai, Doha, and Riyadh are now a part of an Indian fashion designer’s calendar. Ranawat says the UAE alone accounts for 15% of his turnover, and that today, many of his clients are Arab. Since Indian designers are open to making customized changes and have a tendency to be more modest in their approach to designs, their fashion is appreciated. “The Middle East is an important fashion hub for Indian designers,” he asserts. Given the historical relationship between the two regions and similarities in approach to dressing, it is a very natural relationship. As both India and the Middle East continue to affirm themselves as leaders in the fashion space, their long-term affection for each other will only help them thrive.

Priyanka Chopra wore a simple black gown with an old-timey twist.
On Tuesday, June 7, Priyanka Chopra stepped out in Paris for a Bulgari event in an incredibly dramatic reimagining of a wardrobe staple: a black dress. Chopra’s simple black gown had a surprising but effective Elizabethan era twist.
The dress, from designer Robert Wun, is a fitted, sleeveless black dress with a plunging V-neck. Sewed into the dress are large white ruffles which frame her head like an Elizabethan collar, and cascade all the way down to the hem. Chopra paired the buzzy gown with equally eye-catching silver Bulgari jewelry with green gems, including a statement necklace and matching earrings. She wore her hair in an effortless and relaxed updo, leaving some pieces down to frame her face. She opted for glamorous but simple makeup, including subtle eyeliner and a glossy neutral pink lip.

Chopra, who is working with stylist Law Roach (one of his other notable clients is fashion icon Zendaya) wrote in a caption about the dress on Instagram, “It’s never just black and white.…”

Academy award winning actress Anne Hathaway arrived at the Italian Embassy in Paris sparkling, literally. Adorned in a necklace, bracelet, and ring by Bulgari, the actress was in the French capital to celebrate the new high jewelry collection, Eden, the Garden of Wonder by the Roman house’s creative director Lucia Silvestri. Joining her as faces of the brand were actress Priyanka Chopra and Thai rapper Lisa. Former first lady of France Carla Bruni also appeared at the beginning of the soiree, only to reappear for a surprise appearance on the runway met by cheers by guests.

Bulgari organized a high jewelry show within the Embassy to feature the 140 pieces in the collection. Models dressed in nude-colored dresses, with free-flowing hair appeared like contemporary goddesses adorned with the pieces featuring magnificent gemstones and semi-precious stones.

Afterwards, guests convened in the gardens for a dinner prepared by two-Michelin-starred chefs, French Yannick Alléno and Italian Emanuele Scarello. Sat at tables winding like serpents through grass, under a ceiling dripping with fuchsia flowers, guests enjoyed sea bass and toasted brioche, monkfish with basil and citrus burrata, and veal with capers and fresh lemon, and closed off the evening with a performance by Italian musician Mario Biondi who was joined on-stage by Carla Bruni.

In the world of red carpet style, the Met Gala has been the place for celebrity couples to be seen together. Whatever the theme, many famous pairs have coordinated their looks for the stylish affair. 2019’s camp-themed affair, for instance, saw a particularly high number of couples who matched for the event. And with this year’s Met Gala rapidly approaching, Vogue is celebrating the spirit of the ball, looking back on the couples’ style moments that still resonate today.
If the Met Gala is a place for bold, one-of-kind fashion to be unveiled, it’s also a place where high-profile couples have made their red carpet debuts. Take Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik, who walked the red carpet for the first time together in 2016: The stars wore futuristic getups inspired by the year’s technology theme, Hadid in a space-age, chic Tommy Hilfiger gown and Malik in a Versace suit with robotic-style sleeves. For other couples, the Met Gala has served as a meet-cute spot. Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra met for the first time at the soirée in 2017, and now the pair are husband and wife.
Other famous duos who have been fixtures at the Met Gala as well include the likes of David and Victoria Beckham, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner—who could forget the latter couple’s matching geometric looks by Louis Vuitton in 2019, which they wore just one week after getting hitched? Last year, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky set the Internet ablaze when they showed up to the Met steps in matching voluminous looks (Rihanna in Balenciaga, Rocky in ERL).

Priyanka Chopra Jonas on Becoming Bulgari’s Global Ambassador and Her Most Cherished Jewelry

Priyanka Chopra Jonas on Becoming Bulgari’s Global Ambassador and Her Most Cherished Jewelry

Those who have been following Priyanka Chopra Jonas‘s career closely will know that the Los Angeles and Mumbai-based actor always carves time out for initiatives she is passionate about. This time filming her Amazon series Citadel away from home in London, and preparing for roles in Matrix 4 and Text For You, the Indian star has joined Bulgari as its global ambassador for causes close to her heart. Together with the Roman high jewelry house, the actor and activist will be highlighting “women empowerment, diversity, and inclusion” around the world. “As a young actor, looking up at the international film stars like Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren who have long been the muses of Bulgari, it’s a dream that now I get to work with such an iconic house and follow in their footsteps,” shared Chopra Jonas with Vogue Arabia.

While the star admits to being a longtime fan of Bulgari’s stunning designs, it is the house’s connection to her home country that makes her role that much more special. Many of Bulgari’s pieces and fragrances feature gemstones and natural substances sourced from India. “I have always admired and been fascinated by Bulgari’s magnificent works of arts, so many of which celebrate some of the most precious resources of my homeland,” she adds. First on her list as the jeweler’s global ambassador is raising funds for Covid-19 relief in India alongside Bulgari. The initiative is a part of Chopra Jonas’s collaboration with the non-profit organization Give India to raise money for healthcare structures, medical equipment, and vaccine support after the country was hit with a second wave of the virus.

The actor’s new role also cements her place in the fashion world. Over the years, the star has served many inspiring fashion moments while championing sustainability. As for jewelry, Chopra Jonas is a collector with an appreciation for the value that goes beyond the glimmer of the pieces. “Jewelry is magical and a person’s jewelry box is the heart of any wardrobe… Filled with many memories and milestones,” she shares. “Mine is filled with so much joy, and I recognize the important role that jewelry plays in every person’s life.” As a self-confessed “daddy’s girl,” it is natural that one of her most cherished jewelry pieces is one given to her by her father. “I vividly remember my first solitaire diamond ring, which I received from my dad,” she says. “I still wear it today, and when I do I’m reminded of the pride in his smile when I first opened the box and put it on.”
