Ashish N Soni Hosted A Chic Artisanal Soirée

Veteran designer Ashish N Soni – who has collaborated with luxury whisky label Chivas 18 for a series of artisanal soireés called Crafted For Gentlemen – recently hosted a showcase in Mumbai at the St. Regis Hotel to highlight the art of bespoke tailoring.

Co-hosted by fashion photographer Atul Kasbekar, the event had a short film showcase highlighting the journey of bespoke services over the years, along with an interesting installation documenting the creation of a bespoke suit using Soni’s artisanal studio. While there were a host of dapper men in attendance, there was no shortage of nattily dressed women either. Here’s who we spotted at the launch.
