Delhi Couture Week 2013 Anamika Khanna
The Collection: Indian and Indo-Western Fusion Wear
Clothes: The collection had a vintage and Parisian feel to them. On display were Indo-Western lehengas, floor skimming jackets, saris – a lot of which were draped in the Marathi style, jodhpuri pants, and jackets with intricate shoulders.
Colors: Shades like gold, muted silver, blue, green, purple, yellow, light red, orange, beige and black among others were incorporated into the outfits.
Fabrics: The materials used were mostly embroidered and treated with dyes and washes. Sheer fabrics made their presence felt quite often.
Embellishments: There was a lot of intricate embroidery on display, so much so that it nearly looked like lace. The exquisite work also saw influences of chikankari. One saw a lot of use of floral prints and floral embroideries. The various trimming on many of the pieces were also worth noticing.
