Trump India visit: Senior Advisor to US President, Ivanka Trump donned an Anita Dongre sherwani for her second day of India visit. Ivanka Trump wore a white sherwani made out of handwoven silk from West Bengal’s Murshidabad costing Rs 82,400. She dressed up to attend the ceremonial welcome organised for US President Donald Trump at the Rashtrapati Bhawan on Tuesday. In a statement, Dongre said that the sherwani was classic and timeless, created 20 years ago. She added that seeing how relevant the style is even today was “amazing”.
Dongre also shared a picture of Ivanka wearing the sherwani on her Instagram account, stating that the US delegate looked “lovely” in the Suruhi Sherwani. According to the description of the product on Anita Dongre’s website, the “timelessly feminine” sherwani is made out of pure silk for “modern women”.
