Designer Focus: Anju Modi
The couture Czarina has never disappointed when it comes to bridal finery and she continues the tradition this season with elaborate lehnga’s, saris and flowy jackets teamed with dhoti-style pants. Modi showcased her innate ability to create conventionally pretty garments with impeccable surface ornamentation – this time inspired by the Ajanta and Ellora paintings and Khajuraho sculptures. The heavily embroidered outfits were controlled by a subdued colour palette of sand and old rose and jewel tones of burgundy, ruby and emerald. A cause of worry is that she did what was expected of her and hence there was no moment of surprise. We sight a case of becoming overtly predictable.
