Day Two


Anju Modi’s “Damayanti” collection is inspired by the ethereal paintings of top Indian artist Raja Ravi Varma whose muse was Damayanti, The vibrant hues of the popular 6-yard drape were edged artistically with contrasting shimmering borders that faithfully kept the Raja Ravi Varma inspiration in firm control.


 Anju’s look for the show reflected the western techniques and styles The graceful saris were organic while the hand-crafted silhouettes spoke a design language all of their own. Anju’s design philosophy balanced perfectly with TENCEL™ lyocell and modal fibers for the new collection. The TENCEL™ fiber brand’s dedication to eco-friendly and impeccable quality products was aligned with Anju Modi’s brand.The saris were richly embellished with hand embroidery and draped in various traditional forms.
