Anupama Dayal promotes Chanderi silk at AIFW
Designer Anupama Dayal promoted forests of Mangar village in tropical hues using fabrics like Chanderi silk at Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2017 (AIFW A/W 2017).
The ramp might be simple but Dayal's colourful and eye pleasing collection brought life to the stage. Accessories made out of 'gota' made a statement of their own in silver, golden and bronze. Small elements like pom poms, self-crafted butterfly clips and hangings complimented the layers of skirts, dresses and tunics.
Parakeet green, poison ivy, daffodil yellow, shades of indigo, burgundy and raisin and tones of red and pink was the colour palette infused with fuscia that dominates the ramp.
Crinkling, a technique unique to Anupama Dayal, fringing and three dimensional motifs were prominent on the ensembles worn by the models.
"In the village no one cuts the trees which are considered sacred. The trees are really old. I like to imagine the weather of the forest. Through my collection I like to show that one item can be worn in more than 10 ways. I personally wear my scarves and stoles in different ways," Dayal told a news agency.
"The fabrics are really light. A lot of Chanderi, and crinkling for sure so that there is no ironing needed," she added.
