Go Figer, Tommy’s Riding High!
The Times Of India, Wednesday 4th April 2007
Tommy Hilfiger, the first American designer to have launched in India, celebrated his third anniversary in true style. It was an evening to remember for sure – father and son duo, Mohan and Vijay Murjani, hosted a dinner to mark this wonderful event. And guess who the guest of honour was? Tommy Hilfiger himself. “My association with India dates back to the 1970s. I simply love this country and culture. In fact, I have always considered India as my second home and I’m very happy that people have embraced my brand,” said the legendary designer.
There was a lot to celebrate as Tommy has been a major success story, pioneering Murjani’s way for further international fashion brands to make a foray into the country. Welcoming Hilfiger, Mohan Murjani, chairman of the Murjani Group said, “I’m extremely happy to have Tommy with us tonight to mark the successful third year of the brand in the country and I look forward to many such celebrations in the future.”
Seen toasting Tommy at this exclusive evening at Tetsuma was the champagne set of
Mumbai, including Parmeshwar Godrej, Arvind Dubash, Homi Adajania., Celina and Jeh Wadia, Devieka and Suresh Bhojwani, Ajitabh and Ramola Bachchan, Queenie Dhody, Haseena Jethmalani, Simone Singh and Fahad Samar, US Consulate General Michael Owen and wife Annerieke, author of the famous novel Shantaram Gregory David Roberts and Princess Francoise Sturdza. And with Guni and Arti Murjani playing hostesses, you knew it was going to be an evening full of elegance.
The evening was not only about Tommy turning three but also announced the onset of the Spring/Summer 2007 collection by the designer.
