LFW ends Day-3 with designer Anita's rich Indian weaves

Mar '14
Development Commissioner of Handlooms, The Ministry of Textiles Government of India in association with Clothing Manufacturers Association of India presented the rich Indian weaves by Anita Dongre. This initiative for Promotion of Handlooms in Modern Retail was thanks to Smt. Zohra Chatterji, IAS Secretary (Textiles).
 
Known for her many experiments with textiles, Anita Dongre ended Day Three at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014 with her utterly breathtaking pastel collection called “Varanasi Weaves” which was a tribute to the traditional Indian fabrics. Inspired by the hand-woven cottons of Varanasi, Anita’s show was a visual treat of prêt separates for textile and fashion lovers.
 
Giant white floral cut-outs framed the archway to the ramp. Opening the display with the melodious Geetu Hinduja who regaled the audience with foot tapping folk tunes throughout the show, the evening was set for some great fashion. 
 
The gorgeous Dia Mirza glided down the catwalk in an ethereal self designed lemon lehenga and long sleeved blouse followed by models wearing waisted full-sleeved dress and maxi. Soon there were pretty pastel sections that offered a mélange of creations.
 
Prét separates with hints of couture touches had a boho luxe look. The beauty of the Varanasi weaves was perfectly highlighted in the pencil skirts, stately column gowns and then gradually moved to floor skimming skirts and cropped tops, worn with flared pants.
 
Colours were vibrant and rich as old rose, powder blue, buttercup yellow were teamed with nude, dull gold and of course pure white.
 
Embroidery was tonal with beadwork and gentle shimmer highlighting the ensembles. Self designed fabrics in a variety of combinations were turned into pleated maxi skirt, plunge neck zigzag weave gowns, swallow tail maxis, embellished boleros and off- shoulder blouses. 
 
A hint of transparency was evident in gowns with mini inners or sheer lean kurtas over layered flowing pants and embroidered blouses matched with palazzos. Long sleeved tube gowns, paper bag skirts with tailored shirts and draped white/blue shaded skirt were part of the beauties on the runway. Silhouettes moved from straight and lean to flares with sensuous volumes.
 
Men’s wear was stylishly perfect with frayed-edged or unstructured jackets in white linen, waistcoats, sheer shirts, kurtas, bundgalas, dhotis and slim trousers. 
 
Weaving a multi-faceted story of contemporary fashion laced with traditional weaves, Anita Dongre’s “Varanasi Weaves” presented by the Development Commissioner for Handlooms, Ministry of Textiles Government of India in association with Clothing Manufacturers.
 
Association of India was a fascinating summer offering to women and men who value timeless fast forward fashion.
