It was glamour at its elegant best when Anita Dongre presented her collection called “Urban Goddess” to end the Indian Textile Day celebrations at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012. Blending the traditional with the contemporary, Anita’s fashion story was aimed at the jet setting Indian women. Lets See What and How Anita Dongre Presented her Gorgeous Blend of Traditional Contemporary Collection At Lakme Fashion Week Day 3.

Opening the show with five sexy multi fabric silk knee length sheaths with strappy backs, Anita set the mood of the show. The color story was a rich mélange of red, green, gold, beige, black, magenta, bronze and nude all glamorously woven with gold motifs or colorful prints for the predominantly western line of scooped hem dresses, floor length gowns, figure hugging skirts, soft unstructured jackets and hipster skinny trousers.

Anita’s main styling directions were the 1950’s look, with knee and calf length pencil skirts, dresses – some pleated and gathered shapes for long feminine gowns with contrast bodices. Quilting played an important role and appeared for the jackets, hemlines and bodices of the dresses and gowns. Interesting touches were given to the sleeves with flyaway layers of fabrics. Occasionally, origami folds appeared for the outfits which were predominantly sexy and strappy. Sheer georgette blouses with slit long billowy or dolman sleeves were luxuriously embroidered in silver, gold, zari and sequins. At other times the multicoloured resham embellishments covered lean skirts.

Mention has to be made of the very opulent jewellery studded with pearls, diamonds and precious stones, the very classy black stilettos and the elegant embroidered sling bags. Men’s wear was restricted to grey ombré or maroon jackets, double breasted bundgala and single breasted Jodhpuri coats.
