Anju Modi draws inspiration from nuanced elements of architecture, poetry, mythology and literature with each ensemble a celebration of India’s cultural history and tribute to modern feminism.
In this showcase presented by Shri Paramani Jewells, you sensed the revival of traditional crafts and textiles in the weaving, vegetable dyeing, block printing and traditional embroidery.
It is said that the collection is a conversation the designer had with her soul, while taking a stroll through beautiful valleys and the mightiest of mountains.
Aditi Rao Hydari was the fitting showstopper in an antique turmeric colour vegetable-dyed silk lehenga with vintage era embroidered patterns.
