OBEETEE, the leading manufacturer of hand-knotted and hand-tufted rugs, collaborated with fashion design house Sachin and Babi to adorn the ambience for their show at the New York Fashion Week 2017. For added appeal, Obeetee rugs were spread over the seatsÂ â€“ an element that blended impeccably with the decor. The event was graced by American actress Brooke Shields, and Ken Downing, Senior Vice President & Fashion Director, Neiman Marcus, amongst others.
As luxury brands, Obeetee and Sachin & Babi have a perfect synergy. Their collections celebrate diversity and seamlessly marry the old world charm with effortless, contemporary styling. The audience was seen appreciating the collection as well as the finesse of the carpets.
