Mumbai, March 4 IANS | 5 months ago

Fashion designer Anju Modi, who received a positive feedback on her costume designs for Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra in "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela", will make her debut at the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) 2014 later this month.


She will showcase her summer-resort collection at the forthcoming edition of LFW starting here March 12. She will showcase her line March 15, said a statement.

Taking inspiration from the couplet by Amir Khusrau, the collection is called 'Seeking Paradise'. It delves deep into the recesses of the imaginary world.

Modi has been an integral part of the Indian fashion industry since she launched her label in 1990.

Having been one of the founder members of the Fashion Design Council of India, she has been a quiet yet strong force behind the growth and awareness about fashion in India.

Behind the scenes, Modi has been tirelessly working with master artisans across the country. She has delicately revived age-old Indian techniques and has created an extensive library in areas like weaving, vegetable dyeing, block printing and old traditional embroidery.
