Who needs Thursday for a throwback treat? We don't. Especially when we are following up with designer duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla's milestone posts to celebrate 33 years of their label. On Saturday, the designers made us time travel, all the way to 2003, and landed us in the midst of an ongoing exhibition at London's largest departmental store Selfridges. A portion of Dimple Kapadia's home in Mumbai (also designed by Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla) was recreated by the designers in London for a month-long Bollywood themed exhibition in Selfridges, a glimpse of which is now available on the designer duo's Instagram in the form of a throwback photo. Spotted in the epic click are Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit and Dimple Kapadia along with the designers.

"Seen above are Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan along with Dimple Kapadia, Madhuri Dixit Nene and Abu Sandeep posing at Selfridge's version of Dimple's home. The regal bed they're sitting on is carved in wood and spectacularly plated in silver. A Zardozi backdrop completes the luxurious bedchamber decor," read an excerpt from the post.

"Londoners were presented with the staggering opportunity of viewing Dimple Kapadia's Mumbai based designer home at Selfridges - a top departmental store in the city. Abu Sandeep recreated an entire floor of her house for the store's month-long, Bollywood inspired festival," the post added.

2002: A glimpse into the house of the goddess who walked the earth! Londoners were presented with the staggering opportunity of viewing Dimple Kapadia's Mumbai based designer home at Selfridges - a top departmental store in the city. Abu Sandeep recreated an entire floor of her house for the store's month-long, Bollywood inspired festival. Seen above are Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan along with Dimple Kapadia, Madhuri Dixit Nene and Abu Sandeep posing at Selfridge's version of Dimple's home. The regal bed they're sitting on is carved in wood and spectacularly plated in silver. A Zardozi backdrop completes the luxurious bedchamber decor. Recalling the grandeur of the original project, the duo recount - "We planned the entire ambience as a fantasy home for a glamour goddess: rich, plush, sophisticated with a touch of the bohemian, and the interiors started to take a shape of their own." @amitabhbachchan @madhuridixitnene @abujani @sandeepkhosla @harveyleesutton @tonybmorgan @theofficialselfridges #33YearsOfAJSK . . . #abujanisandeepkhosla #abujani #sandeepkhosla #journey #memories #milestones #highlights #anniversary #design #fashion #selfridges #craftsmanship #handembroidery #classic #handmade #original #dimplekapadia #amitabhbachchan #jayabachchan #madhuridixitnene #wood #silverplated #zardozi #decor #homedecor #interiors

Madhuri Dixit and Dimple Kapadia also seprately featured in Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla's Instagram with these memories.

2002: A goddess in green and gold! Madhuri Dixit Nene is a vision of eternal beauty in this net anarkali crafted in a gold, Zardozi upper that leads to a deep green flair embellished with matching sequins. "We were absolutely delighted when Sanjay Leela Bhansali approached us to dress three prominent characters for Devdas! We have so many memories! Watching Pandit Birju Maharaj set the choreography for the first song, as we swooned seeing Madhuri match him expression for expression and step for step." - Abu & Sandeep @madhuridixitnene #33YearsOfAJSK . . . #abujanisandeepkhosla #abujani #sandeepkhosla #journey #memories #milestones #highlights #anniversary #design #fashion #Indian #traditional #culture #craftsmanship #original #couture #classic #handmade #handembroidery #devdas #madhuridixitnene #zardozi #embroidery #anarkali #green #gold #sequins

1993: A crystal clear vision! Abu Sandeep's discovery of Swarovski Crystals was a moment waiting to happen. On a holiday to Dubai in 1993, the jewels twinkled before their eyes and inspired them into making their SKIN & NET Line - a range that went on to become a rage and continues to remain so. The duo were charmed at the possibility of adorning garments with their sparkling beauty, and soon they returned to Mumbai with metres of net and velvet to manifest their fresh idea into existence. Dimple Kapadia glitters in their first skin blouse embroidered with a lavish sprinkling of the crystals - creating an image that will continue to shine in our memory. #33YearsOfAJSK . . . #abujanisandeepkhosla #abujani #sandeepkhosla #memorylane #journey #memories #milestones #highlights #anniversary #design #fashion #Indian #traditional #skin #Swarovski #dubai #velvet #dimplekapadia #designerduo #crystals #net #dimplekapadia
