ANUPAMA DAYAL
Runway Report
 

"I sit down to ideate this collection. It is for Goa… there is already a bubble of happiness growing inside me. Beautiful sunsets, endless emerald paddy, delicious riots of unruly creepers and foliage. Smiles on faces, collective collections of happy memories... The way the world was meant to be. Abandon and freedom to work with… I want to be inspired… stay inspired… be in love… stay in love. So I decide that I will work with the one thing that never fails to flood me with joy. My best friends and the finest universal symbol of beauty — Flowers" Anupama Dayal told me before the showing.

 

It was bang on! Dedicating the show to the contemporary Indian bride, Anupama unleashed a line-up of bright, happy floral prints influenced by sun and sea. The languid silhouettes were a reflection of her brand aesthetic ‘we are global.. we are very, very local' where her muse travels to distant lands and imbibes a slice of local fashion into her personal style. There was a predominant beach bride vibe but these were also clothes to live in, dance in, party in! Sharara pants and skirts fashioned after lehengas hinted at an adventurous vibe while jamas and angrakhas, off-shoulder evening gowns, bikinis with sarongs and ponchos with layered slit skirts were other beauties on the catwalk. Floral-print kurtas that shimmered with badla work, the striking butterfly motif on crushed-silk skirts and saris worn with halter cholis—accessorised by tasseled earrings and beaded slippers—was a testament to Anupama Dayal's acuity. A stylish, upbeat showing as always!
