It’s that time of the year when the festivals start rolling in and every home gleams with lights, color, and sumptuous food. Agreed? Beginning with Rakhi, we have Ganesh Chaturthi, Dussehra and Diwali lined up to give us ample reasons to celebrate, rejoice, and offer our prayers to our deities.
From weddings to festivals, it is the most busiest time of the year, giving us a grand opportunity to open a brand new ethnic chapter of apparels in our world. One designer whose collection has been sought frequently by our B-town faves is, of course, Anita Dongre and this time we brought to you the 10 best styles of the designer’s collection to suit the festive moods.
Anita Dongre’s Ethnic collection:
From garbha dance to Diwali night, we can’t stop flaunting ethnic styles and Anita Dongre’s collection makes our dream of being the perfect desi girl totally true.
1. Gul Kayra Lehenga:
A friend’s wedding is on the way or be it one of your own grand ceremonies, the Gul Kayra lehenga of Anita Dongre would be the perfect pick. Named after a variant of wild rose, the fine silk red lehenga is enriched with glorious trees of the forest. With the rich border holding the elegance in one frame, the Gul Kayra lehenga is one of its kind and we are shooting for it this festive season. Pair it with an overdose of antique jewelry and bag the style.
2. Zeneriya Lehenga:
Looks like the designer has a strong liking for jewel tones and she does an excellent job in accentuating the beauty of these hues with her delicate and rich creativity. One of our favorites is the Zeneriya lehenga, the emerald green celestial feature. Beauty lies in the details when it is Anita Dongre. This outfit speaks for the forests of Ranthambore and the designer proved her finesse in fashion art by recreating a majestic picture of birds in conversation perched on handcrafted gotta Patti trees.
3. Bougainvillea Lehenga:
Speaking for the rich culture of Rajasthan, Anita Dongre created a style named Bougainvillea in striking pink. Depicting the delicate and divine Rajasthan arches and conifer pine trees, the outfit was not just regal but also fresh and rejuvenating. Add trendy jewelry, a messy updo and a bunch of flowers to knock the onlookers off their feet.
4. Asoniya Lehenga:
Go wild, go trendy with your ethnic wear this season with this masterpiece of Anita Dongre. The Asoniya lehenga in the mesmerizing indigo was the perfect ethnic style with a touch of wilderness and a touch of the richness of Rajasthan’s heritage rendered through the embroidery. Sway this unique style this Diwali and get the party started in your name!
5. Peach and Yellow 3-piece Story:
So far, it has been cream and jewel tones combination, but putting a pastel tone as a contrasting shade to a soothing yellow is an artwork and Anita Dongre nailed it. She put together a handcrafted yellow and peach lehenga with motifs of fresh blossoms drawn artistically along the length of the outfit. Wearing it as a 3-piece style, it could bring forth a glimpse of South Indian style with rich Rajasthani craftsmanship. The flare of the style, the tassels, and the floral prints is best suited for the dance nights during the Dussehra, what do you say?
6. Indigo Sari:
Although we can’t deny that we are enjoying the tons of indo-western sarees looming the fashion world, our eyes are longing to witness the age-old rich saree styles, don’t you agree? A cocktail party around the corner, or if you are hosting a party, an elegant sari like the indigo gotta Patti saree would be the right pick. With detailing majorly circling around the hemline, the saree was exceptionally gorgeous. Let your tresses down your shoulders and enjoy the attention with every move you make.
7. The Mansaar Saree:
Doris, pearls, gotta Patti embroidery embedded beautifully in a georgette saree with the traditional Benarasi theme was all Mansaar sari was about. In a dreamy yellow hue, and with gold-toned threadwork, the saree adds an impeccable glow to the wearer. This turmeric colored saree might be your take for the festive poojas that our celebrations ask for. Skip the ruby red, emerald greens, and the dreamy pearls this season and embrace the delicacy of the aqua stone necklace and earrings by Anita Dongre.
8. Eksha Saree:
Pastels are in swing nowadays and wearing it in a traditional Benarsi saree in contemporary georgette might do the trick. While bright and vibrant hues are cherished tones by most of us, the pastels add a delicate romance to the style. Coupling it with trendy jewel pieces, you can ace the 9 yards game with absolute ease.
9. Caara Saree:
Another pastel sari of Anita Dongre that blew our minds off is the Caara saree. With embroidered leaves in a golden thread on the silk textiles, the 9 yards was hypnotic. Coupling it with a high necked heavily embellished blouse, you might steal the thunder.
10. Avasa Saree:
Black speaks for itself loud and clear, its delicacy, its richness, and its beauty. Keep it plain or weave floral motifs with golden thread into the pillars of forts of Rajasthan like the Avasa saree by Anita Dongre, black magnify the elegance of the wearer.
Which of these Anita Dongre’s ethnic creative styles would you root for this season?
