Anita Dongre’s Tree of Love collection is an ode to nature. Earth’s elements are intricately embroidered amongst richly woven textiles. Velvet bodices, tulle skirts, tea-length dresses, and stunning gottapatti lehengas stun amongst a palette of rich blues and deep reds.
Describing her collection, Anita said, “Tree of love is a collection that is special to me. It is inspired by everything I love and respect — memories of childhood summers in the garden with my grandfather and the spiritual reverence for nature that the Bishnoi tribe shares. I’ve married together my love for trees, rich Indian craftsmanship and music into one collection making this a true work of joy.”
