Based out of Hyderabad, Indian fashion designer Anand Kabra has attracted a lot of attention as of late. Celebrities including Vidya Balan, Deepika Padukone and Madhuri Dixit have been choosing him as their designer as of late. Of particular note was Vidya Balan's selection of the designer for her appearance at the IIFA earlier this year.
The designer's latest collection was recently unveiled in Chennai. Bringing together elements of his previous lines Wabi Sabi, Taramati and Kumari, the collection is a colourful medley of styles.
"We are still getting queries about these lines, so they have not lost their relevance. We have picked elements from each and revived them in a contemporary manner,” Kabra says, adding that he enjoys “androgyny or borrowing the principles of menswear from the sherwani or angrakha and fusing them into Indian womenswear."
