For over 15 years, Indian designer couple Anjalee and Arjun Kapoor have been working together to create designs for the international market. While the duo designer might have bored the audience at Pantene Bridal Couture Week (PBCW) in Karachi with their overly embellished lehengas and cholis, they are known as one of the biggest designers in their fashion industry.
“We were invited to PBCW Karachi by Hum TV,” says Anjalee in an interview conducted after fashion week. “The Dubai connect did wonders for us; we have a huge clientele there who are Pakistani.”
Anjalee shares that her main Pakistani client is Sara Taseer, daughter of late Salman Taseer, and adds that the reason the duo came to Karachi was for brand exposure. At PBCW, the couple showcased their Mogul Opera collection, which consisted of heavily embellished bridal gowns and lehengas.
