Kanika Saluja Chaudhary shook fashion fans awake with her strong designs featuring metal work and elaborate headgear on Sunday afternoon, the second day of the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week in Delhi.
“Anaikka (Chaudhary’s label) is known for metal, so we always focus on that. Metal represents strength, longevity and destruction, that’s our focus,’ said Kanika, “I believe metal is a shield, not only in the time of war, but in today’s time as well, it represents shielding, perseverance, strength.”
She used chunky metal accessories and a range of colours — yellow, pale blue, sea green, emerald, rose pink and gold in a range of clothes including jumpsuits, dresses, high-waist pants, dresses with thigh-high slits and flared pants.
“We believe accessories make an outfit… accessories represent personality… it’s a certain type of woman who can carry our type of accessories,” said the designer, who sees Lady Gaga, Madonna and Gwen Stefani wearing her clothes.
