Combining ancient techniques with modern silhouettes, Anju Modi showcased her ‘Manikarnika’ collection at the Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014.
Reliance Jewels, the jewellery specialty store from Reliance Retail, presented this exclusive show, which saw Jacqueline Fernandez turn showstopper. The brand also showcased an array of exquisite jewellery from Milaap, their wedding collection, which complemented Modi’s latest signature range.
The collection drew inspiration from the architectural marvels of the Ajanta-Ellora caves, which were interpreted as intricate embroideries on the garments. Motifs like horse-drawn carriages and delicate floral patterns added to the contemporary silhouettes like the dhoti suits and asymmetrical long jacket that she presented.
Anju Modi’s show, presented by Reliance Jewels at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014, was a true reflection of her love for textiles and textures. The designer, who has been doing extensive research work for a film for a while, also found inspiration in the Ajanta and Ellora caves. Showstopper Jacqueline Fernandez also sported Reliance Jewels’ new wedding collection Milaap.
Said Sunil Nayak (CEO, Reliance Jewels), “Since its conception, our brand has tried to reach out to customers through unique products and exquisite designs of contemporary taste. We are happy that Jacqueline dazzled the ramp in our wedding collection, which also enhanced the magnificence of Anju Modi’s creations.” Added Jacqueline, “Like last season, I had the opportunity once again to display stunning jewellery by the brand. I loved the new wedding collection, especially the regal look of the kundan pieces and this exquisite diamond set I’m wearing.”
