The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) has always taken pride in bringing the best of the world to the Indian stage, this edition of AIFW, péro by Aneeth Arora will showcase their spring-summer 2017 titled “Forbidden Garden” in an alternative way of presentation. #ilovepéroLIVE will be showcased online on the fourth day, 8pm to 8.15pm October 15th as a part of the AIFW fashion spectacle.
On the announcement, Sunil Sethi, President, FDCI commented, “This is one of the many firsts for us, as fashion concessioners will savour a unique showing at the upcoming AIFW SS’17. With Aneeth Arora’s show, we take a step forward to offer something creative which is virtual in its appeal, and futuristic in its approach as the show will be beamed at the exhibition area NSIC Grounds from Aneeth’s garden.”
Designer Aneeth Arora, added, “A small private garden curated by our gardener that provided comfort and a space for celebration came to be known as “forbidden garden” amongst friends. The greens were a delight and the blooms ignited memories. The love just grew and so did the garden. And with the help of our home gardener we took the love to our new workspace, which we wanted to introduce to you, through our spring-summer 2017 presentation ‘Forbidden Garden’ at this AIFW SS’17.”
‘The Forbidden Garden’ péro spring-summer 2017 celebrates the work of Pierre Joseph Redoute, a painter and botanist from Southern Netherlands known for painting stunning lilies, roses and other flowers at Malmaison brought to life by his smooth watercolours. He was an official court artist of Queen Marie Antoinette. This is reflective in the detailing and trims this season, with signature péro buttons, European lace and handmade crochet flowers used as hangings and tassels on garments and scarves.
