I am here to share the press release of renowned designer ANITA DONGRE’s show at the prestigious LAKME FASHION WEEK SR’16. I would like to thank ELEVATE PROMOTIONS for sharing the press release with me.
~Love Notes by Anita Dongre- Lakme Fashion Week Spring Summer’16~
Day 3 at Lakme Fashion Week concluded on a transcendent note as Anita Dongre unfolded a whirlpool of emotions weaved by tradition and grace in her Spring-Summer 2016 collection – Love Notes. Heralding the arrival of summer, the designer captures the poignant emotion of love told through the musings of a young woman who is exploring the changes her lover is likely to bring in her life.
The show transported the audience to a world of fantasy with the entrancing aura of carmine pink and cyan green foliage. Bougainvillea stems rose up to the sky exuding soft sophistication infused with flair. Personifying the opulence and magnificence of the land of royalty- Rajasthan, the stage reflected the grandeur of an imperial Rajasthani palace. Industry stalwarts including SWARA BHASKAR, MINI MATHUR, MIRA RAJPUT, ISHA KOPPIKAR, TIMMY NARANG, SANJAY SURI, POONAM SINHA, SANGEETA BIJLANI, MARIA GORETTI and TANNISHTHA CHATTERJEE extended their support to the designer.
The ramp was illuminated with the vivacious hues of hot pinks, sage green and candy yellow and featuring the designer’s signature gota-patti and resham embroidery. Each ensemble tells its own quiet love story capturing this poignant emotion in ethereal tales.
The audience were left mesmerized as Sonakshi Sinha walked down the runway playing the perfect muse, portraying a young princess full of emotions, passion and grace.
Autocratic romanticism of the urban Indian woman was witnessed as Love married elements of international appeal with a traditional Indian aesthetic. A melange of functionality and fantasy, the collection is designed to resonate with the modern Indian woman- strong but feminine, opulent yet effortlessly graceful.
A love to last the ages, the collection is a testament to the everlasting amorous feeling of love.
