Anju Modi's designs are famous for their regality, intricate embroidery and magnificent silhouettes. They can make any bride look like a queen from a royal era. This was the reason that Anju Modi was the official design partner for Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone starrer, Bajirao Mastani, a period drama film by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
The fact that Anju's designs are magnificent and ooze grandeur was proved yet again at India Couture Week 2018. Her collection 'A Maiden's Prayer' was an ode to the Victorian era. Anju feels that Victorian fashion was a symphony of exaggerated silhouettes with copious amounts of fabric, grandiose sleeves, fancy collars and dramatic hairdos, that was magnificently orchestrated for the graceful women of those days. Talking about the collection, the designer added:
"A Maiden’s Prayer is a bountiful showcase of an endearing epoch. The ostentatious vintage charisma is here to captivate one and all with every detail of this range.”
Anju Modi recreated the charisma of the Victorian age for the modern woman of today, and boy did she do a great job! What especially impressed us about the collection was her focus on dramatic sleeves and drapes, and we are certain that they will be the major trend for the 2018-19 bride.
If there is one fabric that's truly royal, it's velvet! And we loved the extensive use of it in most of her designs. Check out some of the most amazing outfits from her collection:
Kangana Ranaut was the showstopper for the evening and Anju was all praises for the Queen of Bollywood.
"I feel Kangana added to the old world charm of the era as she too has that enigmatic aura that catches the eye and holds the heart," she shared.
The mesh sleeves are stunning, aren't they?
We also saw a lot of georgette and net detailing, especially in the blouses and cholis...
And here comes the dramatic sleeves brigade...
We are loving the earthy floral detailing and it truly is reminding us of a time more royal and graceful! Take a bow, ladies!!!
