As the first woman to showcase her collection at Paris Fashion Week, Anamika Khanna is now considered a role model to women around the world. Her collection is an act of presenting India's rich craft, encapsulated in global contours.
Anamika's philosophy is about innovation with regards to the Indian style, while also keeping it extremely relevant to the modern world. For example, the dhoti pant, commonly accredited to the brand, is now accepted as a modern high-waist trouser worn with a dupatta or Indian skirt. Another instance is the pick-up skirt where the silhouette is used within an Indian context.
Anamika uses soft fabrics with added drapes, while clinching it to the waist for structure. Teamed up with kurtas and capes, boots and shirts gives us a perfect example of modern relevance.
Anamika Khanna's collection is now available in the United States in select retail locations and at CLD PR for editorial pulls and celebrity placements. Her garments will also be featured in a new exhibit at the Phoenix Museum of Art from February 29 - June 21, 2020 in INDIA: FASHION'S MUSE, examining the ways in which Indian dress, aesthetic and artwork have inspired Western fashion designs from streetwear to couture. The exhibition will feature more than 50 ensembles and an array of accessories by Anamika Khanna, Pierre Balmain, Bob Mackie, Versace, Halston, Givenchy and more.
