While Day 2 at #ICW2016 kicked off with Anita Dongre‘s bridal collection ‘Epic Love’, let me just stop to tell you that it was one of the most vibrant and plush ones yet! We met up with Anita a couple of minutes before her show (40 minutes to be exact) and she let us in on her inspiration behind the collection. Her vision, her muse; which honestly was all, and I quote “in her head”. Amazing, right?
The minute you walk into the arena of the show, there’s a very strong Rajasthan-y vibe, like a palace of sorts. And with a playful jhulla, pink bougainvilleas, water fountains and classical, folk music, the set up was pretty much heaven!
Now onto the vibrant part, the models stepped out in sleek silhouettes with beautiful colours, from pinks to blues, to rustic orange and rich gold. The gotapatti work on the lehengas, haath phools and chunky chokers seamlessly blended with contemporary and bohemian spirit of the collection.
And adding to all the beautiful and intricate details – the makeup!
MAC Cosmetic’s Global Senior Artist, Sonic Sarwate gave the models a very strong and impactful look. With a stroke of pink and orange blush from the apples of the cheek to the highest point of the temples, he proves that he truly is a master when it comes to makeup!
The hair was kept in boxer braids and well, you know how I love a good braided look so it’s wouldn’t take Einstein to figure out just HOW in infatuated I was with the beauty side of things!
And speaking of beauty, Bhumi Pednekar showed up in support for Anita’s Epic Love collection and looked sizzling!
