Our brands
Billowing silhouettes, intricately done hand-dyed prints and striking hues come together to define ace couturier Anamika Khanna SS’19 collection AK-OK, which was launched recently on Instagram. We have seen Khanna challenging the conventions via couture, veering away from everything bridal and laying foundation for a narrative that explores fashion in a way devoid of bling. There is a reason why her pastel hued, floor-grazing capes. intricately embroidered jacquards or belted sarees speak to a mature, much discerning set of women. Khanna understands Indian body type and the need of women who are on the go 24 hours.
Stars have adorned her creations at Cannes Red Carpet while billionaire heiresses have thrown over her separates to make for a cool Instagram moment; Khanna fits the bill of engaging traditionalists and those who are attuned to the ever evolving trend cycle.
