Indian men still ahead of women in fashion arena, Anita Dongre
"We have taken a lot of animal and bird motifs. Lot of flaura-fauna with new techniques of embroidery with gotta. We always look for new way of incorporating gotta in our clothes. There is fresh lot of bright colours.
"It's sad that a number of women designers is so less. We don't have many popular labels being handled by women. But I feel in the younger lot of fashion designers the number of women is significantly increasing.
"I hope women designers will soon lead Indian fashion scene. And I can see a lot of labels headed by women coming up in the next decade or so. India is changing. Today's young women are very career-oriented, which was not the case two decades ago," Dongre told PTI in an interview on the sidelines of Vogue Wedding Show 2018.
The latest range to make way to her stores across the globe is her Winter/Festive collection 'Odyssey'. Dongre has once again traveled to her favorite destination, Rajasthan, for the new line which is inspired by the wilderness of Ranthambore.
"We have taken a lot of animal and bird motifs. Lot of flora-fauna with new techniques of embroidery with gotta. We always look for the new way of incorporating gotta in our clothes. There is a fresh lot of bright colors.
"Every time, I am inspired by Rajasthan and I am able to do something new. This is the beauty of the state. Everything there is so interesting that it motivates me to keep representing the craft in the new light," she says.
