Anavila takes LFW audience on exotic fashionable journey
Mar '14
For her debut appearance Anavila Sindu Misra took the audience at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014 on an exotic fashionable journey with her collection called “Secret Life of the Forest”. Keeping hand-woven, linen as the basic fabric choice, Anavila used Jamdani weaves, hand batik, Sujani, Khatwa and hand block printing to add glamour to the saris.
Anavila’s brand is known for its hand woven linens and she was the pioneer who created the first hand-woven hundred percent linen saris. Weaving in the beauty of the forest, there were reindeers, wild berries, blossoms, dragon flies and assorted foliage that appeared as motifs on the innovatively designed saris.
Burnt rose borders and hand batik, along with animal patchwork in floral English prints and hand applied floral stems gave the saris a distinct fashion style statement.
The accompanying blouses had detailing like Thorn birds or deer in Khatwa besides a printed option to match the saris.
The colour story was as natural with sober ecru, burnt rose, black, indigo, white, sap green and ochre that added to the earthy beauty of the creations. With saris in natural ecru, the beauty of the Tribal art was visible on the collection.  
Mention must be made of the very innovative headbands to match each entry that completed the natural story. 
Working with various artisans and craftsmen from Jharkhand, Anavila Sindu Misra’s very feminine line of saris was a perfect offering for the sultry days that will heat up the coming months.
