An imperial extravaganza

These are Indian royalties that you rarely get to see. Their appearance is followed by intrigue, history, heritage and if you are lucky- many interesting anecdotes and stories. Brought up under strict royal traditions, majority of them opted to show up at the Royal Fables Season Six, founded by Anshu Khanna, to celebrate the spirit of Imperial India. Royal Fables is a many layered platform that showcases the various creative and indulgent life-style forums of regal heritage.

The two-day unique exposition held at the Imperial Hotel showcased a rich repertoire of craft and fashion created by the royals themselves and unveiled an art wall featuring works by artists of royal descent. 

Supported by Diacolor and Diva'ni, and flagged off with a ceremonial dinner at The Mansion’s Oval Room, Hyatt Regency , Guest of Honor, HH Maharaja Gaj Singhji II of Jodhpur unveiled the rare darbar music presented by HH Maharaja Brajraj Singh of Kishangarh and a recital by Vidya Shah. The evening also witnessed a royal costume show by Umang Hutheesing to celebrate his 50th, followed by a regal dinner inspired by rare recipes from the royal kitchens of Sailana, Rampur, Sandur and Kishangarh, interpreted by the chefs of Hyatt Regency Delhi.
