Fashion designer Nikhil Thampi created a stunning look for actor Esha Gupta inspired by Azzedine Alaia’s body of work as a homage to the late designer. The actress wore the look at the Filmfare Glamour and Style Awards on Friday night. Tunisian-born designer Alaia dressed famous women from Hollywood to the White House. The French Haute Couture Federation announced his death on November 18 without providing details.
Thampi says that Alaia has always been a huge inspiration for him. “When the news splashed about the demise of Azzedine Alaia, the world went in a frenzy posting pictures and expressing their feelings. But no one really spoke of how revolutionary and forward he was as a designer. He has always been an inspiration to me from the very beginning of my career,” Thampi told IANS.
“I relate a lot to his design philosophy and the mere fact that he understood and celebrated a woman’s body which was pathbreaking and revolutionary back then and so in trend currently which took my attention and what better way to say bye and thank him by giving an homage at a prestigious red-carpet,” he added.
