Known for his rhythmic beats and unmatched stage presence, the father of Indian pop music Daler Mehndi once again enthralled the audience. But this time not with her voice, but with her unique style, she graced the runway at Bombay Times Fashion Week. Dressed in Sam's award-winning Thai designer Suwanee's latest collection, titled 'Blossoming Through Resilience', the Tunak Tunak star embodied the essence of resilience, rebirth and the indomitable human spirit.

Her distinctive style choices on and off stage are beyond the ordinary, enhancing her larger-than-life aura and a simple spirit as an icon of fashion and cultural fusion. The 'Blossoming Through Resilience' collection, a title coined by Sam for Thai designer Suwanee along with his wife Taran Mehndi, is inspired by the elemental forces of nature, paying homage to the four elements – Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Weaving them together in perfect harmony is in line with Daler Mehndi's love for Mother Earth. Mehndi is delighted to collaborate as each piece of the collection features eco prints that capture the essence of nature's raw beauty, inviting wearers to embrace their inner strength and resilience.


Speaking about his collaboration with Suwani by Sam and the inspiration behind the collection, Daler Mehndi expressed,

“The ‘Blossoming Through Resilience’ collection not only celebrates the enduring strength of the human spirit, but also reminds us of our connection with the natural world. Our shared vision reflects not only texture and form, but an awareness of our precious environment "Together, we weave the threads of style and sustainability, lighting up the runway with a message of harmony and hope."


Says designer Sam Sethi of Suwannee by Sam

"Blooming through Resilience is an extremely personal collection for me. It is a celebration of my daughter's story of survival through the elemental forces of nature and fashion, my creative expression. She battled stage 5 kidney disease at the age of 24. The King of Pop himself is an inspiring, determined man who overcame marijuana addiction. We caught up with him during his recent trip to Bangkok. We established a deep connection with him by sharing the story and inspiration behind what has been an emotional roller coaster ride. During this exchange he graciously agreed to join us on the celebrity I am truly grateful to her and everyone involved for bringing her star-studded presence to our event as a heartfelt reminder of the enduring beauty that emerges from perseverance and the fulfillment of dreams. "Can serve as."


Suwani Sethi Makeup Artist/Creator, Showstopper for Suwani by Sam says, 

"I am truly grateful and grateful to have had a second chance at life. To be able to be here in Mumbai, walking the runway for my father's latest collection, Blossoming Through Resilience. This collection and its narrative is a tribute to his incredible fashion. The medium is a celebration of the human spirit and nature. Inspired by my survival story of overcoming lupus, stage 5 kidney disease and coming back from death, the show is directed by Taran Mehndi and my father. It was a collaborative trip. Both my father and Taran encouraged me to be the show stopper. The friendship between the Sethis and each other during their recent trip to Bangkok was born. Where we were inspired by each other's journeys, the King of Gold was so impressed that he graciously agreed to be a part of this celebration of strength and courage! So excited to showcase the resilience and strength of talented Thai-Indian artist Dalerji and my sister Remi through nature, fashion, composition and beautiful music. It is a collective family showcase. Join us at Bombay Times Fashion Week, Friday 3rd May at 14:00 for a unique celebration of life and triumph.”
