Zoya- exquisite diamond jewelry from the House of Tata, hosted an exclusive style event led by Fashion Director and celebrity stylist Shehla Khan- ‘Discover the Diva’. The first in a series of talks initiated by the luxury jewelry brand, the talk was focused on offering guests an opportunity to interact closely with the industry’s top designers to glean lessons that could be applied to their own wardrobes. Guests included the crème de la crème of the city including luxury brand and marketing consultant Tanaaz Bhatia and actress Sara Khan.

Shehla Khan has quickly become a red carpet favourite in Mumbai. Her expertise with embroidery also found early roots, through the exposure she received in her father’s business, which runs an export house that provides embellishment for labels like Valentino and Roberto Cavalli. Her beautifully cut garments, soft supple fabrics, delicate embroideries and feminine aesthetics have created a niche for her.

Models from Shock Talent Management sported different looks from cocktail to bridal, from Shehla’s various collections to illustrate examples from the talk. Drawing inspiration from different kinds of needlework including crochet, embroidery, tatting, braids crochet, lace, knots, knitting, tassels and more, Zoya’s newest collection Lace was the cynosure of the evening, complementing Shehla’s evening wear. The spectacular ‘Jewels of the Rajputana’ collection embellished with one of a kind enamel work in splendid colours like blue, green, gold finished with kundan and polki settings was also presented at this time.

A delectable French high-tea, with Cheese Mushroom Asparagus Mini Puffs, Mini Ratatouille Cheese Tarts, Chicken With Herb Quiche, White N Dark Chocolate Mousse and delicious finger food accompanied by San Pellegrino and a wide selection of exquisite Teas and Coffees added to the warm flavor of the evening.

Speaking on the occasion, brand head for Zoya, Arif Padiath, said “Zoya Jewelry is crafted to inspire. The Zoya woman who is a connoisseur appreciates the unique inspiration behind every exquisite Zoya piece. Craftsmen at Zoya create jewelry as beautiful, rare and precious as the women who wear them. This event is one of the many that are of interest to the Zoya customer.”
