Can fashion and conservation work hand in hand? Yes, they can. And Designer Anita Dongre proved it with Rewild '23.
The show -- which took place at the City Palace in Jaipur -- aimed to raise funds and awareness about Nature and elephant conservation.
Steering clear of traditional Indian silhouettes like anarkalis, saris and lehengas, which have been the designer's forte, the collection was contemporary yet rooted in tradition.
South African model Carla Kanungo felt it was 'better than the Dior show' recently organised in Mumbai.

A matching potli can be an unforgettable add-on.

IMAGE: These tops can definitely multitask -- wouldn't they make lovely cholis as well?
IMAGE: She didn't forget to add pockets (love that, Anita!).
All her models wore flats for an added level of comfort.
