Leave it to designer Ali Xeeshan to attempt the unconventional in fashion. His latest project ventures where few have gone before — designing traditional handmade footwear, or khussas, for high fashion. The designer just announced a collaboration with popular online footwear business Dazzle by Sarah.
Khussas are traditionally made by hand and have long been an integral part of fashion in the Subcontinent. Dazzle by Sarah is a popular online shopping destination for those looking to purchase khussas and has amassed a large following over the years.
The collaboration between Ali Xeeshan and Dazzle by Sarah was recently announced by both brands on social media.
The brands have also given their followers a peek at the khussa collection by unveiling two designs on social media. Do our eyes spy actor Minal Khan in the photoshoot?
The collection definitely has that Ali Xeeshan charm to it — they are tastefully flamboyant and would make the perfect footwear for those looking to amp up their desi couture at weddings and formal events. One can even think outside the box and make these khussas work well with an every day outfit.
The collection seems to have a hefty price tag though. According to Dazzle by Sarah, the Taj pair cost Rs6,550.
Both collaborators have asked their followers to "stay tuned for the big reveal" and we're quite interested to see what the entire collection looks like.
