Indian Couture Week, Anamika Khanna weaves romance

tyle="text-align:justify">Fashion designer Anamika Khanna captured the eternal beauty of romance in her India Couture Week 2016 collection "When Time Stood Still." 

The designer, who is known for her experimental styles, modern and edgy design as well as subtlety, depicted her collection theme through live model installation.

"The whole idea behind the live models was to make time still. These installations were of people, who are at a party and the time stood still. Times when people are busy on their mobile phones, it was an attempt to feel the emotion," Anamika told reporters post show.

Classics by Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra complimented the elaborated set up and the designer said her aim was to bring alive the youthfulness of romance.

Even though the collection depicts the women of today, Anamika chose to involve traditional embroideries like kalamkari, dori work and zardosi throughout the range. The touch of technology was brought in by 3D petals.

"We have used a lot of traditional weaves. Pearl work dominated the whole range. It was tough to put them as they were so tiny that the needle will not pass through them," she said.
