ANUPAMA DAYAL
Runway Report
 

"When we meet at sunset by the mighty Arabian Sea, I will give you a collection that will uplift you. In textures, I feel I have peeled from the soul of the subcontinent and colours that we all agree are slightly 'out of control' in my hands" promised Anupama Dayal before her showing at India Beach Fashion Week.

 

From the first look, it was evident the showing was a sumptuous distillation of Anupama's strengths and a reflection of her brand aesthetic ‘we are global.. we are very, very local' where her muse travels to distant exotic lands and imbibes a slice of local fashion into her personal style. Swaying to the theme 'happy girls are beautiful girls' the girls' languorous sensuality could be felt in each look, where a delicate swing of the hip or sensual tie-up had power to chain the wearer's beau! As the show progressed, the potpourri of handblock prints, patchwork, embroideries and tassels was perfectly calibrated into a playful, artisanal and globally relevant collection—and there was no doubt in our mind that hot-sellers were the beautifully languid kaftan dresses—fringed with tassels handmade by women in Munirka village to empower them with sustainable livelihood.

 

Hours after the showing I couldn't help marvelling Anupama Dayal's dexterous hand at mixing pop colors, lively prints and languid silhouettes in contemporary, culturally rooted sensibilities.
