It is wedding season and Indian brides have a favourite designer label which is neither Manish Malhotra nor Sabyasachi Mukherjee! Known for their gorgeous mix of ivory white and gold, Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla have an innovative style. With Chikankari which is their hallmark look, the designer duo have created a name for themselves in the fashion world. 
Their outfits are the picked by A-list Bollywood brides for their big days since the ensemble with the classy colour palette designed by the duo exudes glamour and royalty.
Deepika Padukone was the most recent one to don a glorious outfit created by the designers. She looked ethereal in an ivory and gold Chikankari ensemble created by the designer duo. Paired with fine jewels from their collection, the Piku actress looked nothing less than a queen at her reception. 
The occasion doesn't need to be just weddings. Sara Ali Khan also admires the label and often sports the glorious designs created by Abu and Sandeep. The gold on the outfit compliments her skin making her look like the diva she was born to be. 
It is clear that the designers know the colour palette for grandeur and don't shy away from experimentation. This frill saree in gold and ivory is a perfect example of how they have reinvented the iconic saree and maintained the glamour of the ensemble. 
Alia Bhatt is a budding fashionista and doesn't shy away from trying out new stuff but still knows how to carry off the iconic look. In this classic gold and white piece with dazzling mirror-work by the duo, she looks no less than a sparkling star!
Unlike most designers who play it safe, Abu and Sandeep experiment. They stick to the colours they know look the best, but their patterns have a refreshing twist to them. This embroidered gold and white floral patterned lehenga sported by Kiara Advani is case in point. 
Apart from patterns, they also experiment with trends. The off-shoulder look may have trickled down into street style, but only this duo can easily turn it back into couture. This bespoke gold and white bridal outfit worn by Shloka Mehta is trendy yet a classy piece. 
Bell-sleeved tops was another trend that was widely seen on the streets. The duo used the idea and twisted the look to create something so fashionable and glamorous at the same time. Alia Bhatt sporting this detailed lehenga and cropped shirt with bell sleeves and a collar left us stunned!
Taking the classic and giving it a modern twist is clearly a knack they have! Deepika Padukone in this saree with an embroidered cape is a bold look we don't think any other designer would be able to create. Especially not with so much glamour added to it! 
We are not surprised that fashionista Sonam Kapoor also opted for an Abu-Sandeep creation for her Mehendi day. With the attention they pay to detail, their choice matches well with hers. She looked nothing short of a princess in this masterpiece. 
But the obsession with the designer duo is not sudden. It has trickled down through generations. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan are perfect examples of this. The Bachchan beti and bahu have opted for the designer's label at multiple red carpets, Diwali parties and of course weddings! 
A clear fan of Abu-Sandeep designs, Jaya Bachchan wears their creations occasionally. She loves how they reinvented the zardozi and shared their obsession for chiffon and silks while avoiding synthetic fabrics. Eventually, she became their lady in white (and gold) and wore first pieces from their collection for many years. 
Dimple Kapadia is another yesteryear actress who was occasionally seen in Abu-Sandeep designs. She was fond of their brocade and benarasi silk designs. 
Jani and Khosla have been in the business for over 25 years and it is clear that they know fashion and the market well. They have adapted and improved their creations to match the times, still making them relevant and in demand. 
Their classic gold and white palette has been maintained, and how!

Twinkle Khanna , Amitabh and Abhishek also wear AJSK a lot, some of their outfits are tacky though

I just ahppned to see a link shared by a friend where Deepika has removed the heavy veil from here head and is enjoying her day. She is not in a tight bun but a pony tail. Plus there are some lovely accents to her blouse. I wonder why she covered it?!

I like both Deepika and Sonam. Two very beautiful and lovely ladies.

Sonam ks so much prettier than all of actresses here ,its insane that she's the less popular one.hahahha yeh kisne likha hai ?? Bhai itna bada mazak mat kia karo please

Deepika has a prettier more feminine face than Sonam.Sonam looks worst even with kgs of makeup.

Sonam has a prettier more feminine face than Deepika.

Its just that her loudmouth bimbo personality never let her become a fan favourite.

Deepika is a natural beauty. Also extremely elegant. Sonam needs layers of makeup and tons of photoshop to look passable.

Yeah, a natural beauty who wore colored contacts in all her wedding cermonies.
Not to mention the obvious skin bleaching.

you sure are a guy to say this.. deepika has bronzed herself from top of her head to her hand.. as it was an right functions.. and sonam is pink is peach for day functions.. stop spewing idiot words if you dnt know the difference.. and really deepika is looking more manly than her husband!!! what is she aiming for??

Sonam definitely

I am actually missing Sonam and her remarks :) She may look gorgeous but the stuff she spouts :):)

Somehow Sonam is the only one who makes the Abu Jani outfits look good every time she wears it! Her wedding styling was much better than Deepika’s...it was more easy breezy and made her look much younger! I’m a huge Deepika fan but very disappointed with her stylists as always!

Abu Sandeep and sabhya need to take credit fr spoiling dps marriage styling. These ppl are designers and not stylists. Dp doesn't have any style sense which Sonam has. Sonam also has her sister for lot of inputs even though she wears some attrocious clothes. What oportunitty Deepu lost! If not for Sonam and Rhea, this Abu Sandeep outfit would have lost somewhere. I hope PC doesn't go to sabhya and Abu. Manish Malhotra can only make pretty clothes, nothing much. Why does she wear his clothes

Sonam looks beautiful. DP looks nice but could have done better with the hair and that veil

Sonam's wedding looks were so good. Her hair, make up, jewelry, clothes everything was on point. DP's wedding look was traditional, but after wedding looks have been boring plus that hair. Hoping the BW reception look will be good.

Great article......beautiful description...compliments to the writer

sonam looks lika a bride . deepika straight out of a photoshoot with that makeup + photoshop + expressions

Deepika looks gorgeous for a movie set.

Sonam looks perfect for a wedding.

Aish and Sweta are wtheeyy

Sonam had the best look. Deepika looked washed out and very inspired from Sonam.

Big DP fan, but have to say...sonam looked so drop dead gorgeous compared to DP

DP could have left that veil or dupatta and just go for the lehanga..and that oily pulled back hairdo was a big nay when u r wearing that dupatta over the head...

Sonam is so much prettier than all of the actresses here, it's insane that she's the less popular one

The bridal round clearly goes to Sonam. Sorry Deepika, you over reached.

Only Sonam's outfit is worth talking about.

Deepika is gorgeous :) Love the sophistication and elegance that jumps out of the photograph. Sonam looks good too.

Deepika and Sonam look drop dead Gorgeous.That is not to say that the other ladies do not look beautiful as well.They all are.

Deepika looks gorgeous
