Speaking about this, Designer Duo Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla shared, “We have a long and very special relationship with CPAA. It's wonderful to be working together again after a four-year gap. Their work to empower and heal people and families affected by Cancer is an absolute labour of love and relentless commitment to the community.

We are absolutely delighted to showcase our labels at this important event. Fashion that comes straight from our hearts. Please join us and support their incredible work with generosity. Cancer can and must be beaten.”

From the classic to the avant-garde, this collection was an absolute revelation and is designed to thrill the most discerning fashion connoisseurs.

Mard by Abu Sandeep ushered in the new season with a delicious blend of ranges that boast exemplary craftsmanship and the reinvention of classic silhouettes and heritage techniques and textiles to create a thoroughly modern design expression that was destined to remain timeless in its appeal. From the understated, pristinely regal elegance of ‘Bakhiya’ and the soothing pastels of ‘Applique Mirror’ to the festive exuberance of ‘Holi’ a riot of colour in tie and dye and the glamour of ‘Mirror’ and the dazzling craft of textile techniques like Ajrak, Bandhani and Ikat, this is an absolute smorgasbord of style for the 21st-century man.

Talking about opening the show for ASAL Bride, Global Influencer and Style Icon, Masoom Minawala shared, "Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla hold a very special place in my heart, especially since they customized the Mehendi outfit for my wedding as well! To be the Princess Bride for ASAL and to be able to walk to support their cause of empowering families affected by cancer is an honour and privilege. It's going to be a night to remember, and I hope everyone donates generously to help CPAA continue their incredible work of raising awareness and treating cancer patients.”

Masoom was an absolute vision in passionate red for Asal Bride. She wore mirror ghagra from the wine glass collection.  Magnificently hand crafted with light and dark gold mirror in an innovative and modern geometric pattern and highlighted with gold vasli. A beautiful head veil completed the ravishing romance.

Siddhant Chaturvedi wore a flared black coat with hand-embroidered patchwork encrusted with jewelled stones. Lined in pure silk Ikat patchwork it was a dazzling masterpiece of craftsmanship and cutting-edge style.

Even Mrunal Thakur epitomised the fresh and delicate romance of the Summer Bride in a spectacular peacock ghagra. This old rose ghagra was embroidered with mirrors highlighted with red and pink bright resham colours and finished with vibrant silk detailing. A pastel pink frou head veil completes her dreamy look.

Social Media Star Zervan Bunshah & "Class" Actress Naina Bhan also walked the ramp.
