Actor Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and designer Anamika Khanna have a decade-spanning artistic partnership. The actor has usually been seen donning the designer’s creations together with the well-known cape saree she wore at Cannes in 2013. This time, they’ve teamed up once more for some astonishing outcomes.
The actor shared footage to showcase the designer’s hand-crafted assortment which “is an amalgamation of different influences, elements and traditions that pay ode to the culture of modern India and its heritage.” She additionally added: “Being a trained dancer, Anamika knows the importance of being at ease in what you wear, and has created something that is not just comfortable, but also, oh-so-glamorous!”
In the primary set of images, the actor seemed ravishing in an ink blue ensemble which was intricately embroidered on the borders, exhibiting the wearability and fluidity of the designer. The shrug was styled as a prime and this was paired with what may be described as an unhinged skirt.
Sharing related footage, the designer wrote: “Sonam and I have been creative collaborators since 2007. We have immense mutual love, respect and shared values. She embodies the modern Indian woman.”
In the second occasion, the creation was an elaborate affair consisting of a ruffle shirt paired with a pair of black wide-bottom pants. The look was elevated for the large bow cinched on the waist. “Anamika’s collection not just celebrates the coming together of fashion & functionality, but is a stunning culmination of the Indian aesthetic & fuss-free dressing,” the actor wrote.
In the opposite photograph shared, she was seen in a signature Anamika Khanna ensemble: a confluence of ethnic and Bohemian type. This was accomplished with hair tied in a braid. “‘Chotis’ or the Indian plait are one of my favourite ways to wear my hair. It’s both practical and unfussy, but can also be beautiful for a bride on her wedding day,” the designer shared.
