Isha Ambani, the Managing Director of Reliance Retail, donned a bespoke hand-embroidered haute couture sari ensemble by Indian designer Rahul Mishra at the prestigious Met Gala 2024.

The gown, which delicately embroidered signature motifs of flowers, butterflies, and dragonflies, took around 10,000 hours to complete.

The elaborate and detailed work on the gown was done using applique and embroidery techniques like fareesha, zardozi, nakshi, and dabka. The gown also had French knots in parts, according to designer and Isha Ambani's stylist, Anaita Shroff Adajania.

"Together, all of these elements carry a powerful narrative about the state of the planet and offer a message of hope and rebirth. The magnificent look was intricately hand-embroidered at Rahul Mishra's ateliers across several Indian villages, supporting hundreds of local craftspeople and weavers," she added.

To complete her look, Isha Ambani went for nature-inspired jewellery pieces designed by Viren Bhagat, including traditional lotus hand bracelets (Haathpochas), parrot earrings, and a flower choker. She also carried a clutch crafted by Swadesh using Indian art techniques like Nakashi and miniature painting.

The clutch bag features a small yet highly-detailed painting featuring India's national bird peacock, or the Mayura. The painting was created by Jaipur-based artisan Hari Narain Marotia.

This year, it will be the fourth time that Isha Ambani will grace the Met Gala stage. She made her Met Gala debut in 2017 with a Christian Dior ensemble. In 2019, she went for a lilac gown designed by Indian designer Prabal Gurung. In 2023, Ambani chose Gurung again.

In 2023, the Reliance Retail MD wore a black silk saree gown designed by Gurung. Her ensemble comprised black silk fabric draped over one shoulder, with crystals and pearls added to a floor-length silk chiffon train. She completed her look with an embellished choker, diamond necklace, earrings and rings. She also carried a Chanel doll bag to make her look all the more extravagant.
