The lawns of the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Mumbai and also China House (the well-known celebrity watering-hole) were choc-a-bloc with Bollywood stars and fashionable celebrities as far as the eye could see. They were there to celebrate the second anniversary party of Kwan and also enjoy the Chivas Studio Spotlight which was an eclectic amalgamation of fashion, art, mixology, gourmet food and music.
For this edition, the Chivas Studio Spotlight showcased a collaboration between art by Skoda Art, clothes by designer Arjun Agarwal, bikes by Verdanchi Motorcycles and art installations by the Sharan – Apparao Art Gallery, known for its eye in spotting and supporting emerging trends.
The Chivas Studio Spotlight is an illustration format of the Studio, held over an evening across the cities of Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi, Pune, Chandigarh, and Bangalore through the year.
The evening – which kicked off on the lawns and then saw everybody heading to China House – saw an eclectic mix of guests from fields of cinema, art, fashion and music.
The attendees included a number of friends of Kwan and Chivas like Ranbir Kapoor, Nargis Fakhri, Genelia D’Souza, Soha Ali Khan, Arjun Rampal, Rahul Bose, Abhay Deol, Malaika Arora Khan, Rana Dagubatti, Kalki Koechlin and husband Anurag Kashyap to name just a few.
