In Asmita Marwa

After Adhuna, we spotted Amala wearing a kalamkari dress/tunic from Asmita’s Fall 08 collection. It doesn’t surprise us to see her don fellow Hyderabadi’s clothes especially considering Asmita styles her husband (Nagarjuna) in almost all of his movies. What does surprise us however is that we haven’t seen Amala wear more of her! :p

While we love the tunic/dress, we do wish Amala paired it with a different set of pants. The beige totally washes out the print and makes it all fall flat.

On an aside, Asmita’s Fall 08 collection with all of its stunning kalamkari pieces has been one of our favorites from all that we’ve seen of the designer, and though the collection may be seasons old, the work/craftsmanship itself is timeless and we can’t wait for more celebs to discover/be spotted in it.

Spotlight: Anupama

I recently found this line of home collection by Anupama Swaminadhan and it has the most beautiful line of cushions, fabrics, stoles etc..

The pillows are all hand-painted using vegetable and mineral dyes, and, ‘Kalamkari’ on those pillows looks so good… I especially love the more traditional design-form pieces and the ones with mythological narratives depicted on those fabrics. Because the execution is so modern even when the art-form itself is ancient and traditional, the result is quite contemporary and chic!
