Princesses of Persia

Anju Modi’s show notes included a poem by my favourite Sufi poet, Rumi so I was won over from the start:

I asked, “Where is your home, beautiful moon?”

She said, “In the wreck of your heart so stone.

I am the sun shining into your ruin.

Long may you call this wild wasteland your home”.

Inspired by Persia, the show was entitled Kashish: an Urdu word, reflects an attraction, a deep desire and yearning for something; something which maybe never was. Well English words don’t mean so much do they?

One of only a few female couturiers showcasing at Amazon India Couture Week, Anju Modi showed the boys how to do it. Bridal trousseau elegance like only a woman would know. The right amount of femininity combined with elements of masculine tailoring in some designs.

Persian gardens of our fantasies know only of abundance and joy, as displayed time and again in this wonderful show.
