“I am a minimalist by nature,” says designer Anju Modi, and that is what her designs are all about this Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week. “I like to play around with surface texture, hand-woven fabrics and their unconventional treatment that synthesises the vintage with the contemporary.” Her collection, named Luminosity, is going to have Global Warming as a background for this autumn/winter showcase. There is a use of sheer fluid fabrics in natural colours and Indian designs. There is slight flounce in most of the garments and yet a proper structure has been given to them to bring out the character of the designs. Anju’s show is on Sunday at the WIFW in Pragati Maidan.
“I am a strong believer in Sri Aurobindo’s vision and his thought has inspired this collection,” she says.
