India Couture Week: Dia Mirza walked the ramp for Designer Anju Modi in the royal look

With the fourth day of India couture week, designer Anju Modi’s showcased her designs at India Couture Week show on Thursday by sashaying down the “environment-friendly” runway in a traditional outfit, which is a part of the ‘Sunehri Kothi’ (Golden chalet) collection.

Model-turned-actress and producer Dia Mirza graced the ramp as showstopper for designer Anju Modi. The actress looked stunning as she revealed herself slowly from behind the ghunghat (veil) of the exquisite bridal Anju Modi attire which was inspired by the ‘Vatika Raas of Vrindavan’.


As you all know Dia, is nature lover she felt overjoyed to walk in a creation inspired by nature on the ramp here.

Through her amazing couture collection, the designer made a successful attempt to revive the royal culture of India. Many of Anju Modi’s designs were inspired by the Kishangarh School of Art that Princess Vaishnavi Kumari of Kishangarh personally introduced to the designer.

The “Bajirao Mastani” designer chose a good combination of green and maroon for her lehenga in organza fabric. The maroon, full-sleeve, velvet blouse and off-white and golden dupatta which she wore around her head, with heavy jewelry and makeup made her look awestruck.


Anju made the mystique of Radha, with her sharp features dressed in lehengas made from hand-woven textiles, and worn with fitted blouses.


She took the cue from architectural and artistic influences of the craft of Meenakari, the intricate and detailed brushwork, the remnants of the colors, handmade from minerals, vegetables, indigo, and embellished with precious stones, pure gold, and silver.

The designer recreated a mystical ‘Sunehri Kothi’ (Golden Chalet), resplendent with the waif like muses dressed in slender, exotic Indian costume akin to those that graced the miniature art of 16th century Rajasthan, especially Kishangarh. Very significantly, the collection built on bravery, honor, chivalry, and virtues that Rajputana culture has ever been known for.
