My Fashion Diary: The Summer Oasis by Anoli Shah
Famous for dressing up Bollywood's whose who, from Sonakshi Sinha to Parineeti Chopra, Anoli Shah has pieces that are effortless yet fashionable on the ramp and in person. Having been a designer for almost 10 years, she doesn't fail to design every piece to fit the comfort of her client, and bring out the curves in every woman's body. She has modernized and redefined Indian designs with her high couture label based in Mumbai, and her contemporary style has caught the eyes of some of the most stylish women in India & internationally.
Every collection has a theme, this time being the "SUMMER OASIS" but what's fascinating to see is the way she plays with fabrics and prints to bring the best to Indian fashion. The twists that she adds to every piece, whether its a dhoti or a cape, is to watch out for as it creates a trend of its own. I fell in love with the way her lehengas and dhotis fit my body! Her cuts and drapes sit so well on the body, especially since the materials she uses range from chiffons to silks and organza which feel so lightweight and are easy to carry for a casual or formal event. This collection brings in lehenga sets with a matching cape, a midnight-friendly draped dress, as well as tapered pants with an elegant jacket or a bright-as-the-sun sharara and kurt set. Since it's been inspired by the desert and its women, it's got a character of its own and there's no other place than wearing it & styling it in a city like this. This is how I got to style some of her most beautiful pieces from the latest collection and feel like a desert princess.
