Day 2 was the Sustainable Fashion Day at Lakme Fashion Week. A sought after name in conscious luxury wear, Anavila, closed the day with her Autumn Winter collection, Blur.
The setting has enormous wrought-iron gates that opened to a solely lit, graveled pathway, set between a peaceful garden. Intriguing music filled the space as the models walked down the pathway in deep olive ensembles, reflecting the hidden greens of the lush, floral garden. The collection built up colour with brown, wine, deep blue and grey as the music moved to stronger notes.
Burgundy stained lips and upheavaled hairdos added a sense of fervent passion into the look. To complement her designs, Anavila crafted beautiful handmade bags that can double as slings. Leafy motifs in silver and gold accessorised the garments in a minimalistic manner.
The designer showcased her designs in a whole new colour palette on saris, trench coats, jackets, pleated trousers and trouser suits. Delicate floral patchwork, khatwa and hand-blockprinting added the romance.
”Blur is my expression that brings out form and subtle design to the forefront of fashion with the unmatched intrigue of black. Black as a colour or the lack of it is probably the only one that connects us to the universe as we see it and my subtle specks of silver and gold lie on the sky bed of black like stars in the sky. I am thrilled and inspired with what has come out,” shares Anavila.
Friends of the designer Dia Mirza, Kalki Koechlin, Sona Mohapatra, Manasi Scott, Ira Dubey, Tillotama Shome, Sonali Kulkarni, Ahana Kumra, Mini Mathur, Mandira Bedi and Auritra Ghosh applauded Blur from the front rows.Read more at:formal dresses online australia | formal wear brisbane
