When the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre (NMACC) opened in Mumbai on Friday night, Day One was all about the entertainment industry, from Rajinikanth to SRK, with a few politicians thrown in for good measure. Day Two, which took place on Saturday night, was all about the influence of haute couture.
The NMACC put a swish spell over everything from historical items that bear the creative imprint of John Galliano and the House of Dior to the Big Three of Indian fashion designers, Anamika Khanna, Tarun Tahiliani, and Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
