ANUPAMA DAYAL
Runway Report
 

''As an Indian who's spent her childhood and adult life in this fascinating land, all our diverse cultures are still riveting… but there is one culture that for us, and for the rest of the world, tops all charts on 'exotic'. The Nagas! Head hunting, snake eating, frighteningly aggressive and mysterious Nagas. When I visited Nagaland. I made friends with many tribes and tried unusual food like bees and hornets, examined tattoos of head hunters—one per head hunting trip! The state is known for its weaving, basketry, textiles and weaponry, so I had fun making accessories! What did I come back with.. having experienced something raw and timeless… it's distilled in my showcase''

 

Titled ‘Fight And Feast' Anupamaa Dayal Autumn Winter 2016 is a reflection of her brand aesthetic ‘we are global.. we are very, very local' where her muse travels to exotic lands and imbibes a slice of local culture and fashion into her soul. In this instance, a strong woman who isn't afraid to fight against injustice. She doesn't feel out of place as she's adorned in garments crafted with khadi and silk, that though steeped in Naga design and palette of red, black and white, can be worn anywhere due to the urban silhouettes. "There is so much to experience in our country and I am happy I could showcase what I have imbibed from my travels," she grinned. 

 

My favourite looks? The bird feather-printed maxi dress with off-shoulder neckline; the zig-zag printed full-sleeve accessorised with tribal head gear; the asymmetric yellow dress given a dramatic look when worn with a tribal crown; and the printed two-piece ensemble enhanced with rows of tribal bangles and head gear. In short, urban, global, wearable tribal print separates, shirt dresses and draped dresses that would add value to a modern Indian wardrobe!
