Anushree Reddy opened Day Five at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015 with her Victorian and Indian fusion fashion. “The Oasis at Sunset” was the serene name of her collection, where fashion geometry met fragrant flora. Opening the show with the lovely Bollywood star Amy Jackson in a sensuous champagne, gold and pink lehenga with heavily embroidered choli and cutwork dupatta; Anushree ensured that the show had all the glamorous creations for a festive occasion and bridal wear.
Working with a colour splash that was initially dominated by pastels, Anushree swiftly moved to gentle hues of nude, peach, vintage rose, beige and then engulfed the collection in jewel tones and bright shaded yellow and fuchsia. Reviving the beauty of Hyderabadi craft from her city, Anushree added zardozi on luxurious fabrics like chiffon, georgette and net along with subtle prints, which were merged skilfully with the fluid garments to make the collection an ethereal formal offering to the New Age Bride and her entourage.
The line up of printed cholis or lehengas was in elegant silhouettes. Cut-out shoulder boleros were worn with net covers and sleek pants. A shaded orange lehenga and choli was a graceful entry, while the draped printed net sari, stylised gown and the silver sequined choli with a pale green tulle skirt were gorgeous creations.
Ending the show was the very ruggedly handsome Rana Daggubati, star of the hit film “Baahubali” who strutted in a black raw silk kurta, double breast waist coat with zardozi embellishments teamed with ivory pants and pocket square. “The Oasis at Sunset” was a collection that will urge every woman to choose it for the most important day of her life.
