From the minute Everybody Hurts by R.E.M to Falling In Love With You by Elvis Presley played at one of the grand ball rooms of the Leela Palace in New Delhi, there was something that touched my old school heart and had me humming these songs I would never had played if it weren’t for Anamika Khanna‘s Couture show!

And while I wish I could paint the prettiest picture for you from last night’s show, I hope the words I write before you just now do the job…

The night started off with romantic tunes, that were supported by rustic and ancient instillations with barks, leaves and twigs hanging from up above. The pieces from Anamika’s collection showed the grand and ethereal power of love – through the garment, of course. From the craft to the motifs, to the colour palette that started off with a muted ivory tone, to the shape and silhouette, there was nothing that a true lover of fashion wouldn’t say no to.

Pastels, jade, oyster pink, blacks and strong hues with even stronger accessories from Amrapali Jewels to support this collection made a great case as to why Anamika is one of the leading fashion designers of our time. And who could forget the leading B-town celebrity who turns heads at any given time… Sonam Kapoor

What I thoroughly enjoyed most from the show was how poetically and beautifully the music and garments fused in with each other. Almost like it was meant for the collection.

The hair was kept simple and sleek and the makeup striking, yet minimal.
