The peppy Anupamaa Dayal, known for her contemporary interpretation of traditional Indian garments and easy, free-flowing silhouettes brings a carefully curated collection to the Bombay Attic next week. Perfect to keep those mid-week blues at bay, the trunk show is scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday. Having dressed the likes of supermodel Gisele Bundchen, and Bollywood star Kareena Kapoor-Khan, her label Anupamaa has also been recognised by Elle US and Vogue UK, apart from being part of the Paris Pret-a-Porter a�� an international fashion trade show, for the last four years.
a�?I have lived in Bengaluru, so I know the citya��s vibes. Keeping that in mind, we have curated a selection of garments from various collections, that suit Bangalorean fashionistas. Expect easy, comfortable pieces, which is anyway our signature style,a�? shares Dayal. a�?Theya��re all pieces that can easily be transformed from day to night with the right accessories,a�? adds the designer, whose label aims to revive the ancient crafts of hand block printing and needle craft. The palette is a mix of vibrant shades with a celebratory vibe, with silhouettes that include long, flowy dresses, loose fitting and flirty tunics, and a wide range of Bohemian bottoms from dhoti pants to culottes and palazzos, all with interesting prints. Fabrics used are a blend of chiffons, light silks and dainty cotton brocades.
Dayal is currently working on her line, Manjula, to be showcased in Paris in early September. a�?Ita��s a line thata��s a perfect example of a�?more is morea��,a�? she tells us. Think, prints on prints and pattern on pattern in eye catching shades.
