Isha Ambani is among the few Indian celebrities who will attend the MET Gala 2024. The Metropolitan Museum of Arts rolled out the red carpet to uphold its tradition by returning on the first Monday of May. The theme of what is dubbed the ‘biggest fashion event of the year’ this time is The Garden of Time.

On May 6, Anaita Shroff took to her Instagram account to share the red carpet look for Isha Ambani at the MET Gala 2024. Explaining Isha’s look the stylist wrote in the caption, “Isha is wearing a bespoke hand-embroidered couture sari gown from Indian designer Rahul Mishra.“ She further shared that the outfit took 10,000 hours. 

Isha’s look also embraced ‘sustainability’ as the dress uses elements from the designer’s past collections. Talking about the outfit, Shroff wrote, “Delicate samples of flowers, butterflies, and dragonflies were meticulously integrated from the archives into the design, via distinct applique and embroidery techniques, such as Fareesha, Zardozi, Nakshi, and Dabka, as well as French knots. 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.”

Isha, who is a regular at the MET Gala, always follows the theme of the night. This time too, the director of Reliance Retail embraced the theme of ‘The Garden Of Time’. However, what caught attention from her outfit was her ode to India. She carried a clutch with the outfit that features an Indian Miniature Painting created by Jaipur artisan Hari Narain Marotia, as per the stylist. The clutch features a peacock, the National bird of India.
