Indian fashion designer Anita Dongre said modern Indian women should have handloom fabrics in their wardrobes.

"Every modern Indian woman today must own few pieces of handloom and handmade clothing in India, and she must do that," Dongre said.

While speaking to PTI at the Vogue Wedding Show, she emphasised the use of handmade textiles and added that handcrafts play a huge role in her designs.

"I create western silhouettes in handlooms for Indian woman under the brand Grassroot and under bridalwear, we create occasion Indian wear where we use handloom.”

“So, as designers we have to make fashion accessible and make a conscious effort to use handlooms in our collection," she observed.

The fashion designer is also promoting Indian handlooms in collaboration with the government and will work with some weaver clusters all over the country and has already begun an initiative in the village of Charoti in Maharashtra.

Revealing trends for this year's wedding season, Dongre informed that she liked long open jackets with gotapatti embroidery and also tabard kurta. (AR)
