Anamika Khanna And Rohit Bal To Kick-start India Couture Week 2017
Anamika Khanna and Rohit Bal are two designers who need no introduction whatsoever. Fashionista or not, every Indian should know and does know of their sartorial excellence. Given their skilled expertise and popularity, it came as no surprise that the two were chosen to open one of the most exuberant events on the fashion calendar of India, the India Couture Week 2017, which will kick off on July 24, 2017, in Delhi and last all the way through to July 30, 2017. Both designers will be presenting their respective collections off-site.
Anamika will showcase her new collection, Luxury 2017, at The Kila, Mehrauli but not on the usual runway. The couturiere’s latest wedding-centric collection will be displayed as an installation. In a short and concise description of her upcoming collection, Khanna said to a popular news agency, “Respecting and understanding the small nuances of every occasion, at Anamika Khanna, we present the ‘Luxury 2017’ collection, the story of a beautiful wedding.”
Rohit, on the other hand, will present in his usual exquisiteness with models sashaying down the runway. In keeping with the theme of his new collection, Khush Posh, which sees a revival of the ancient techniques and crafts as seen in the royal Mughal costumes, the renowned designer chose the now restored Bikaner House as his venue.
“The collection is an ode to lost craft and tradition. A journey from the past to the present with a gentle nudge of contemporary influences,” added Rohit during the same media interaction.
