The designer is known for her use of soft natural textiles in subtle shades with dreamy silhouettes and is a favourite among her sari-wearing Bollywood clientele. Sonam Kapoor, one of the first to arrive to join in the merriment, was seen in a classic Anavila white handwoven linen sari with gold detailing and a beautiful hand-blockprinted linen blouse. “I am very excited to be here in support of an incredible designer and, of course, also in support of handloom,” said Sonam. “I am so glad that Anavila is making such stunning and modern clothes. I hope all the young people wear these beautiful saris, too.”
