Hyderabad: Amid overwhelming gowns and dresses, Indian textiles got their red carpet moment at the 69th Cannes Film Festival when Deepshikha Ddeshmukh, producer of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer “Sarbjit”, stepped out in an ensemble featuring Paithani and Kanjeevaram details.
Ddeshmukh flaunted a pink organza Paithani anarkali with a Kanjeevaram Ikat dupatta and a navy blue gharara — a creation by Indian designer Gaurang Shah.
“Love my pink Paithani anarkali and Kanjeevaram dupatta, thank you Gaurang Shah,” Ddeshmukh tweeted, crediting Shah, who is known for his Jamdani weaving technique.
Even Shah was overjoyed.
“We are delighted that Deepshikha Ddeshmukh chose to wear this beautifully handwoven ethnic dress. It is inspiring not just for our team, but also for our weavers’ confidence for the great admiration it receives around the world, especially at such a big fashion and film platform,” he said.
Shah’s hand-woven fabrics are loved for their colours, motifs and fabric fusion, which has takers in many celebrities like style icons Sonam Kapoor, Vidya Balan and Kirron Kher among others.
