Sonam Steals The Show In Anamika Khanna’s Collection At India Couture Week Show
Dim light, music by Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley and ambiance decked up with greenery and live models; famous designer Anamika Khanna’s ‘When Time Stood Still’ mesmerized the audience with her outstanding collection. An impressive array of ensembles ranging from embellished lehengas, palazzos, sequined jackets, long trailed anarkali’s to pant sarees were breathtaking.
The garbs were stacked with statement jewellery pieces made of precious stones like emerald, diamonds and rubies on a golden base. The embellished lehengas boasted of 3D flowers detailing and the whole line wove a romantic story on stage. And, the oversized and structured coats, dramatic capes and pant sarees were a huge hit with the attendees.
Anamika played with fabrics like organza and georgette in myriad hues of white, beige, gold, salmon pink, celadon green, fiery red, black and yellow. The collection, which is meant for new-age women, also witnessed traditional embroideries like kalamkari, dori work and zardosi throughout the range. The touch of technology was brought in by 3D petals.
The highlight of the collection lies in its embellishments and pearl work dominated the whole line in its glory. Anamika left ‘literally’ no stone unturned for the stunning collection. She widely used heavy embellishments, sequined work, hand weaves and intricate work of gold embroidery on the silhouettes.
Joining hands with heritage jewellery house Amrapali Jaipur, the designer brought back the romance on centre stage with her garbs. The jewellery added more to the Victorian feel of her outfits.
Anamika is known for her experimental style and edgy outfits and she made sure her celebrity guest – Sonam Kapoor – represent just that!
Sonam brightened the gathering in the designer’s offbeat saree gown from the collection. The satin Satin boho dress paired with a sheer overthrow made up for an intriguing ensemble for the fashion icon, who paired the look with silver sandals. With statement jhumkas, classic watch and creamy clutch, she finished out the look regally. Her stellar appearance was complete with dramatic eyes, bright red lips and a messy updo.
