Anju Modi showcased ‘ Devi ‘ at Delhi Couture Week 2012 – which blended white, red and black on long flared anarkalis, jacketed skirts, and lehengas to give a collection thats very innately Indian. Personally though the pieces had drama, i just want to see SOMETHING other than anarkalis and skirts with jackets now. I mean its kind of getting overdone dont you think?? Below are the official Press note and photographs from the collection
“Who is this, steering close to the shore
I feel that she is someone I know.
The sails are filled wide, she gazes ahead, waves break helplessly
against the boat each side.
I watch and feel I have seen her face before.”
- Rabindranath Tagore
This year, Anju Modi presents her collection DEVI.
The collection takes inspiration from some of the most vivid
characters inked throughout the Bengali literature and those that have
been cinematically brought to life.
Their exquisite purity, their passion and their raw characterization
is what she beautifully delves into, creating designs that dwell in
their innate immortal character.
This year she weaves a dream collection commemorating the ethereal and
iconic characters that defined and epitomized women-hood, in an
endeavor to levitate women in all their avatars.
