Pippi goes to Poppy Field
Each season with Péro Aneeth Arora represents the new age of Indian fashion, comfortable in its own skin flailing in delicate muslins and with intricate details and lets not forget the most unforgettable presentations. Aneeth Arora boasts of a huge fan base, by far Péro is the most talked about brand amongst casual conversations; I guess Péro has made ‘Dowdy’ the new Chic.
Péro is providing modern sensibility to #MakeinIndia, famed for giving platform to its craftsperson and innovating Indian textile Aneeth has made muslin fashionable again.
Her way of presenting her collection speaks about the love she puts into work and her immaculate craft wins accolades in India and Internationally.
Aneeth is widely known to design uniform inspired clothes. Autumn/Winter 2016 was all about School Girls in Uniform inspired from the eponymous children books character Pippi Longstocking. Péro has reinvented Gingham check in all colors and sizes, though Aneeth stayed true to her silhouette she added color to large black and white gingham with red Poppy flowers.
This season Péro runway was converted to a lively classroom which was anything but boring. Freckled girls were roaming through the class with choppy bangs and crooked braids.
Though there were many badges in this staged classroom I felt the count of ‘Trouble Makers’ was a little higher and the models were having a gala time painting poppies on the floor, throwing paper planes and passing notes all through the show. Undoubtedly there was excitement but more than that there was this child like innocence and adoration the way it was all presented. We saw love notes ‘live with all your heart, love with all your heart‘ embroidered on dresses in Italics, laces trailing around frocks, appliquéd poppies and of course tiny Péro hearts.
