Songs of Summer by Anita Dongre
In the hush of a summer garden, the bride steps onto an aisle of verdant nature, tall beautiful trees swaying their branches to her rhythm. Flowers, butterflies, and birds sing words of deep ethereal love. Fireflies light up her path towards a bright new future. Inspired by the beauty of blooming gardens and summer flowers, Anita Dongre presents ‘Songs of Summer’, a collection where rich luxurious handcrafts and printed stories of love entwine together for a magical summer wedding.
Capturing the true essence of summer, the collection combines a symphony of subtle pastels, exquisite light fabrics and floral and botanical motifs, celebrating two souls in love exchanging vows against the rustic beauty of Earth and of life. Every ensemble tells the story of nature in muted tones of blush, sage, powder blue, yellow and pristine white—reminiscent of a beautiful summer garden.
With this collection, Anita brings back 50’s inspired pleated midi skirts, jumpsuits, wrap tops, long line jackets, tunics & crop tops with light hand embroidery, Zardosi, and Gottapatti details. Classic lehengas and draped saris in cool fabrics such as modal, light-weight handwoven silks and cotton in Benares with customised flower pattern, bridges the fashion eras of traditional and contemporary together for a bride who is resplendent, confident and radiant—a woman of today.
