Set against the backdrop of the changing colours of the evening sky, Anju Modi’s Autumn/Winter 17 collection showcase titled Neelambar, displayed at the Amazon India Fashion Week gloriously exhibited the country’s rich textile legacy through Modi’s opulent designs.
Modi’s designs are often known to have strong influences of architectural wonders. Her collection this season is also architecture-inspired. The show saw a divine lineup of beautifully structured lehengas with embellished capes, layered Anarkalis with asymmetric hemlines, and evening gowns with intricate gold embroidery. The garments had floral motifs, organic elements, and design details of minarets. The collection saw hues of white, beige, sunset yellow, ash grey, raisin, black, and midnight blue with hints of gold and silver, that went in perfect synchrony with the changing colours of the sky being projected on the screens in the background.
What made the pieces in the collection really stand out was the fact that they not only had a wondrous traditional charm to them, but also a strong sense of modern aesthetic.
The leather juttis paired with every ensemble were designed by Needledust, while the accessories for the show were crafted by Roma Narsinghani.
The show closed with Sakshi Tanwar walking the ramp in a gorgeous ivory lehnga with zig-zag stripes and florid motifs teamed with a brocade blouse and a sheer embellished dupatta.
