Anju Modi presents poetic layers of tradition at India Couture Week
Eponymous designer Anju Modi presented a poetic and subtly regal men’s and women’s couture collection named ‘The Road Less Travelled’ at India Couture Week with actress Aditi Rao Hydari as showstopper.
On July 27, Anju Modi presented her latest couture collection on the runway, inspired by a soul’s journey, the Fashion Design Council of India announced on Facebook. Aditi Rao Hydari walked with Modi to close the show wearing a yellow lehenga with emerald green shawl decorated with metallic floral embroidery.
Womenswear included classic sarees and lehengas as well as more fusion style layered looks in monochrome, jewel tones, and more subtle hues. Menswear included floral embroidered waistcoats and all white ensembles with a nostalgic feel.
The collection was accessorised with traditional finery by Shri Amrapali Jewels for both men and women and models were styled with natural hair and makeup. Other accessories included beaded and velvet evening bags, leather belts, and vintage style hats.
“The collection encompasses one's learnings and experiences through various walks around the world,” wrote the Fashion Design Council of India on Facebook. “The collection speaks of how taking the longest routes and crossing glimmering rivers, can lead to a wave of change in our very being.”
India Couture Week runs from July 22 to 31 at the Taj Palace in New Delhi as well as at a number of offsite locations. Organised by the Fashion Design Council of India, the fashion week is celebrating its 15th anniversary this season, in which 13 brands have been selected to participate.
