Swiss International Air Lines Ltd., branded as SWISS, selected acclaimed fashion designer Narendra Kumar Ahmed as their Brand Ambassador in India. Jean-Philippe Benoit, General Manager India & South Asia, hosted a special event in Mumbai last night at Indigo, Colaba to make the official announcement as well as unveil its first creative.
Showcasing the new-born collaboration is a “fashion calendar” depicting women floating in the air. This limited edition calendar begins (unusually) on August 1, Switzerland’s National Day. Each month, the models are dressed in a different couture outfit, all creations of Narendra Kumar, specially designed for the occasion. The star guest for the evening was Neil Nitin Mukesh grandson of legendary singer Mukesh and son of singer Nitin Mukesh (which is why he probably keeps all their names!) You think his kids might have a dilemma there? Or just a very long name. Btw did I tell you he was absolutely fabulous in the Bollywood flick New York?
Photographs from the Calendar were put up on the Indigo terrace decked with candlelight and all the trees dressed with colourful ribbons . Spotted: Ramesh Sippy’s photogrpaher daughter Sheena Sippy, Sulaiman & Reshma Merchant, Atul & Vandana Kasbekar, Rahul & Malini Akerkar, Basab & Annu Paul, Poonam Soni, Chhaya Momaya, Himanshu Kotecha, Vinod advani, Fahad Samar, Simone Singh, Sameer Parekh, Ashwin & Tina Deo, Vikram Raizada, Anil Chopra, Lata Patel, model Kiran Rao, Brian & KaySoon Brown, Ashwini Kakkar, Bose Krishnamachari, Reena & Jitish Kallat, Delna Poonawala, Rajesh Kohli and Mr. & Mrs. Peter Specker, the Consul General of Switzerland.
Psst! Kadambari still seems to get an awful lot of picture time, last I heard she and Nari had broken up no?
