ANUPAMA DAYAL
Runway Report
 

Anupama Dayal's unifying goal for Resort 2016 is to make women feel beautiful and install in them the confidence to explore the art of seduction. With 'nautch girl' as the theme, Anupamaa took a leaf from the nineteenth century where freespirited women had power over men with their beauty, sensuality and talent such as singing and dancing. Through this show, the designer aspires to explore the lives of these women who danced for a living and often been an object of desire and conquest—and that's a tall order!

 

But Anupama knows how to translate a seductive theme into a contemporary collection — set to music like 'Dil Cheez Kya Hai' of 'Umrao Jaan' she showcased chiffon and Banarasi saris with fringed pallav, miniscule brocade blouses, flared shararas, ghagra choli and flowing skirts with crop tops — accessorised with floral hairpieces as the collection is titled 'Madhumalti'. All ensembles had intricate detailing and bright palette, and the languorous sensuality of the girls could be felt in each look, where a delicate swing of the hip or sensual tie-up has power to chain the wearer's beau. 

 

In Anupamaa's world it's also the reality that will keep her scores of buyers coming back for more! For a long time now the designer has practiced one half of the brand DNA: minimalism. This season she nailed the rich sensuous half of the house code. 'Madhumalti' will be a hot-seller the moment it graces her store racks!!

 

In the designer's words,

''The nautch girl danced

There were bells on her feet

Her smile was a lotus

And there were rainbows in her eyes

… The warm glow of her beauty

Shuts out his pain

His every failure

His dislike for himself

Mirrored in the glass he holds…''
