ANUPAMA DAYAL
Runway Report
 

"The world inside of me is the story of Gulabi.. a young woman who lived in an old Haveli in India. Gulabi had one burning desire: to see the world. So she sets forth across the seven seas... to lands distant and exotic... to meet people friendly and strange... she wanders and she wanders. And then she returns home. On the nights when she is alone... she opens her treasure box and with each precious souvenir she unwraps... the magic begins." The collection note instantly put me in a vacation state of mind!

Indeed Anupama Dayal Spring Summer 2014 has a strong personal vein. And if this collection started at home (crafted with Bengal hand-woven cotton and chanderi.. silk and georgette with folk-inspired flowers in bloom) it traveled far afield after that. A cotton jersey choli teamed with a hand-woven cotton skirt and accessorize with multiple medallion necklaces hinted at an adventuring vibe. My personal favorites were a Chanderi sari with oversized flowers embellished with clear glass beads teamed with a choli with a marigold garland tie-up and a floral full-sleeve fluid shirt worn with coordinated palazzos. As Anupama had told me before the showing.. the woman she had in mind is the kind who travels to exotic locales and brings back a little of this or that. No matter what though she's still an Anupamaa woman—and that means she requires easy long dresses.. shirts and skirts.. palazzos and a closet's worth of floral saris. An ethereal showing that ended on a high cheerful note with "gulaabi aankhen..."
