A night to remember with Mario Testino
After weeks of trans-Atlantic phone conversations and email chains, the date was finally set—last night, Vogue India hosted an elegant soirée for one of the fashion industry’s greats—Mario Testino.
The legendary fashion photographer will be guest editing his 12th edition of Vogue with Vogue India’s May 2017 issue. On a crisp winter evening in Delhi’s gilded Leela Palace Chanakyapuri, guests from circles as diverse as fashion, art and literature came together to spend time with one of the most celebrated photographers on the international fashion landscape. Testino walked into the party accompanied by Katrina Kaif. Tarun Tahiliani, Manish Malhotra, Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Manish Arora, JJ Valaya, Gaurav Gupta, Namrata Joshipura, Leela Group of Hotels’ Aishwarya Nair Matthew, Natasha Poonawalla, Goodearth’s Simran Lal, Subodh Gupta, William Dalrymple and Bikramjt Bose were amongst those present at the party.
In her address, Vogue India editor Priya Tanna introduced Testino to the crowd saying, “Mario Testino is without a doubt the most prolific fashion photographer in the world and it is a matter of both pride and prestige to have him takeover our May 2017 issue.” The photographer’s team clad in all black, who go by the name MARIOTESTINO+, took over Vogue India’s Instagram channel and caught some stunning glimpses of the night.
