Check out Anavila's festive saris at Kausalyam, Hyderabad
Anavila Mishra from Mumbai, known for her sustainable approach to fashion, will be participating in a craft show in Hyderabad, titled Kausalyam. Organised by the Crafts Council of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, this exhibition will also host other top designers such as O Layla, Brass Tacks, and Gaurang Shah from Hyderabad.
Patch and block
Known for popularising handmade yarn, the graduate from National Institute of Fashion Technology, Delhi will be getting a range of saris that might serve as valuable additions to your wardrobe if you have started prepping for Dussehra and Diwali. “I came up with this collection with the festival season in mind. Hence one can spot motifs with zari and silk threads as they add to the metallic sheen,” says the Mumbai-based designer, adding that her collection of jamdanis will definitely please the fashionistas. In sync with the mood, the colours that she has chosen to work with are orange, burgundy, red, aubergine, wine and rust. Her patrons can also look forward to a range of whole-nine yards with block prints and khatwa (appliqué) patchworks.
No smooth edges
Anavila is also bringing tunics and stoles apart from her collection of saris. Her tunics are stitched out of linen yarns with zari. The highlight, however, is the rough edges on the neck which makes her Indo-Western ensembles all the more edgy. She has stuck to bright colours available in a varying range of shades like sea green and orange.
After the exhibition is over this weekend her line of festive ensembles will be available at Ogaan, Hyderabad. Also, coming up at the store is her Winter/Festive 2017 line, Blur, which she had presented during the Lakmé Fashion Week winter/festive 2017 last month. The collection is set to have saris, trench coats, jackets, pleated trousers and trouser suits, chiefly in black.
Kausalyam is ongoing at N Convention till September 23.
Rs 13,500 onwards.
