{ Anju Modi } Delhi Couture Week 2013

Being the opening designer for The Delhi Couture Week, Anju Modi did a fabulous job. Staying true to her magic of layers in her garments, it was a treat to watch all her outfits on the ramp. Titled ‘Draupadi’, the garments had a subtle hint of androgyny to them. A sense of warrior princess with mini-jackets, bold good brooches and jewelry, large motifs and deep tones of red and indigo made the entire collection look quite strong-willed. I personally loved how the intricately crafted pashmina shawls were draped and held up by gorgeous bold gold pins and brooches. Quite practical. Will give this technique a try myself when I attend weddings this winter! I was floored by all the accessories and jewelry that complimented all the looks.

Also fell particularly in love with the very large bird-cage motifs that were used!

Anju Modi had Tabu as her show-stopper. Tabu being the classic and demure beauty that she is, looked stunning in the red outfit. However it would have been nice to see her a tad bit more enthusiastic about being where she was. Her expressions were bordering on bored and too serious.

While the show and garments were all gorgeous, I didn’t quite grasp the need for having the dance performance before and in between the show. While most people defend it saying its all part of the story and concept all I have to say is – “Its a fashion show, let it be just that.”

    I don’t understand or know many of the bigger names in fashion, styles, silhouettes nor do I know much of every designer’s work history but all the outfits here look really eloquent, espec. in that whole warrior-woman kind of way. I never really thought to check out anything by Anju Modi before. What a lovely thought for her collection – Draupadi! 🙂 And I’m digging those power shoulders, brooches and bird-cage motifs as well. (The colours, too.)

    P.S. Very interesting, royal and yet rugged and raw, somehow.
