Designer Anju Modi showed her collection at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week, Fall-Winter 2013 in New Delhi, India on Thursday, March 14, 2013.
Her work oozed a sense of patriotism with the display of military headgear and dupattas draped sash-like as one can see on high ranked officers dressed in full regalia. Woven embroidery, block prints, traditional detailing and handloom fabrics were the high points of her collection.
