IBFW Day 1: When Anupamaa Dayal beached summer fashion

By Pallavi Aman Singh
New Delhi [India], Mar. 7 (ANI): India Beach Fashion Week kicked off in all its stylish glory, on Monday, in Goa with the opening show from designer Anupamaa Dayal, setting the tone for some fashion-packed days ahead.
Strutting down the catwalk, the models sported Anupamaa's latest trend to the fashion conscious.
Speaking on her collection, the fashion designer told ANI, "I worked with four modern colour palettes – fuschias, reds, camels and monochrome (black and white). It showcases lots of romance and graphics. There were lot of long sleeves; I told my girls that they'll be like fashionable orangutans."
"This one was endorphins- the feel good hormone; I never had drugs and alcohol, never smoked a cigarette and I always feel very high on life. I always try to channelize the same vibe."
Spilling the beans on her collaboration with Crocs, "At the absolute end, my girls were supposed to go bare feet. We had tied up with another footwear designer which didn't work out. I thought I'd just put sand on them, and then suddenly Crocs came to invite us for a collaboration. Like magic, these girls managed to materialise some Crocs on all the feet. They were happy and comfortable and that's the spirit of Anupamaa – fashionable but very easy."
Speaking about the collaboratiob, Deepak Chhabra, chief executive officer, Crocs India said, "Kickstart of ibfw with her was pleasure.. her resort wear goes absolutely well with crocs… the DNA matches, collection was stunning." (ANI)
