The opening exhibition for the ‘Zeenat Aman by Mina Siddique’ ready to wear collection was held at Boulevard One, at the Palace Downtown Hotel. The stall was an explosion of color with silk capes lining one rack and printed shirts and jackets spiraling down another. Mina Siddique’s avant-garde lamps with strong statement themes and bright cushions in leather and silks adorned the tables along with the original artwork and design prints created for digital printing on the fabrics. Capes, jackets and sarees from the ‘Zeenat Aman by Mina Siddique’ collection were displayed on mannequins and the signature clutches were exhibited on miniature white benches and stands.
The first wave of visitors headed towards the stall at 10 AM and several styles were sold out by lunch. Zeenat Aman and Mina Siddique arrived at the venue greeted by photographers, media and admirers in tow. Zeenat Aman posed for press pictures and signed autographs on special postcards for visitors and admirers. Afterwards, Zeenat Aman and Mina Siddique answered questions from the media out on the patio.
