Tommy Hilfiger is one of the world’s leading American designers with an eponymous brand that needs no introduction. Right from committing to every memory of Shahrukh Khan in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to being mentioned in over 85 Pujabi songs, Tommy Hilfiger has shared a very close relationship with Indian music and theatre. These allusions have often been a source of Tommy’s inspiration in his seasonal collections and of course we love that.
This year, Tommy Hilfiger celebrated it’s 10th anniversary in India by introducing two limited edition designs: a shawl for women and a traditional men’s bandi keeping his signature twist and preppy spirit alive. Alongside launching a limited-edition line, Hilfiger hosted an exclusive press event with Sonam Kapoor at the Tommy Hilfiger-Select Citywalk store and presented a guest lecture to the students from the National Institute of Fashion Technology in New Delhi, India.
Hilfiger has been an illustrious designer and mentor for over 40 years in the fashion industry. He has visited fashion schools globally to address upcoming designers and his visit to NIFT India was none less than a remarkable one where he indulged in a tête-à-tête with the school’s aspiring fashion designers.
When asked to comment on the Tommy Hilfiger’s festive celebrations in India, Sonam Kapoor expressed, “I am excited to be here with Tommy to celebrate his brand’s 10th anniversary in India,” “Tommy’s signature preppy with a twist style and Americana inspirations are iconic – his collections are always undeniably classic, American and cool.”
On the account of his brands 10th anniversary celebration, Tommy Hilfiger seemed exceptionally ecstatic. “It’s an honor to be in New Delhi for this memorable celebration of our brand’s 10th anniversary in India,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “For 10 years, we’ve shared our preppy, all-American styles with consumers throughout India, and I’m honored to be back in the country to commemorate this milestone occasion”.
In light of the event, guests enjoyed a private performance by Estelle, the Grammy Award-winning singer-song writer and longtime friend of the brand. Estelle’s exclusive private performance, included her international chart-topping hit songs “American Boy” and “Do My Thing”. Mr. Hilfiger was joined by over 400 guests and VIPs, including Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor, Bollywood heartthrob Ranveer Singh, Shailesh Chaturvedi (CEO & MD TH India) along with eminent fashion designers like Manish Malhotra, JJ Vallaya and more.
