Looking sharp in a white handwoven malkha sherwani with intricate stitch line embroidery and mother of pearl logo buttons, Shahid Kapoor was flanked by his beautiful wife Mira Rajput who wore a statement white handwoven Benaras lehenga with pastel floral motifs, handwoven silk choli and silk organza dupatta with hand embroidered resham and gota patti work.


Recreating the magic of the 50s, Anita presented breezy midi skirts, jumpsuits, cool wrap tops, elegant long line jackets, trendy tunics and stylish cropped tops that shared the stage with classic lehengas and draped saris in light-weight handwoven silk, chanderi, mul and cotton in Benares.


Light hand embroidery, zardosi and gota patti details juxtaposed with customised flower patterns bridged the fashion eras of traditional and contemporary together.


Printed bandis and kurtas, layered with trousers were also presented as part of the menswear look. The ensembles were complimented by stunning pieces from Anita Dongre Fine Jewellery, embroidered flat shoes and pretty floral tiaras.


Capturing its true essence, the collection combined muted tones of blush, sage, powder blue, yellow and pristine white with stunning floral, botanical and bird motifs.


Anita Dongre closed the opening day of Lakmé Fashion Week - Summer Resort 2018 with her collection Songs of Summer — inspired from a beautiful summer garden in all its bloom.
