Autumn magic with ethereal whites
Designer Aneeth Arora's collection Pero Spring 2014 is on display at Moon River in the Capital. The collection consists of an exclusive array of ethereal whites with vintage beading.
Arora's particular brand of anti-fit, frumpy chic clothing is a hardsell in India, where the average person won't understand the concept of paying four figures for a mulmul shirt. However, her understanding of delicate textiles and persistent effort in elevating their status has earned her fans among international buyers and won her Vogue India's first-ever Fashion Fund Award. All of which combined has turned her into a hot ticket on the Indian fashion circuit.
Alhough Arora is not one to experiment with silhouettes or colours, this collection offered far more variety than her usual efforts. Her dainty slip dresses are ephemeral, but her collection also includes androgynous pant suits, decked out in hot pink gingham checks.
Even saris made it to the final cut, polka dotted and worn with soft jackets instead of the traditional choli blouse.
