Designer Anju Modi revived the royal culture of India through her couture collection, ‘Sunehri Kothi’ at FDCI India Couture Week 2017 in Delhi.
Anju Modi, an enthusiast of vintage design once again reminisced the glorious past. Now, for the winter of 2017, she recreated a mystical ‘Sunehri Kothi’ (golden chalet). Her collection portrayed Indian outfits akin to those that graced the miniature art of 16th century Rajasthan, especially Kishangarh.
Also, very significantly, this collection builds on bravery, honour, chivalry and virtues that Rajputana culture has ever been known for.
Interestingly, many of Anju Modi’s designs are inspired by the Kishangarh School of art that Princess Vaishnavi Kumari of Kishangarh personally introduced her to. Moreover, a student of art and the patron of this school, Vaishnavi’s art finds great resonance in Anju’s collection.
“Traveling through the land of the kings, Rajasthan, I found myself on a road less taken to a humble yet resolute-mansion – The Sunehri Kothi. Now, weathered and rugged exteriors did little to give away the grandeur of what was once a ‘Golden Chalet’. Moreover, in this collection I bring alive its gold emblazoned interiors and intricate architectural detail, allowing a peek into the Sunehri Kothi that also emerged in the miniature art forms of that region,” says Anju Modi.
The collection will be showcased in collaboration with Vishal Jewels – a brand to reckon with. Moreover, the collection exhibits grandeur and magnificence, a regal edge to each piece having intricate details inspired by traditional artworks. Lastly, the specially designed heritage jewellery for Anju Modi Couture ensemble is made of uncut and rose cut diamonds, emeralds and precious stones.
Think no more ladies. You know what to do next. Also, the bridal season is here and so are the festivities. So, lay your hands on some of the finest traditional wear from Anju Modi’s latest collection.
