Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) 2014 Summer Resort is just over and it was great on style with many famous and less famous Indian designers showcasing their new creations on one of India's most famous fashion shows.

Designer Anita Dongre ended Day 3 of the week-long Indian Fashion Show with her classy pastel collection called "Varanasi Weaves", a tribute to the traditional Indian fabrics coming from that region.

Famous for her ability to create modern silhouettes out of Indian textiles which lend a distinctive echo of traditional roots, this has also been the recurring theme of her new collection and particularly for her Anita Dongre dresses.

The Anita Dongre Collection

The "Varanasi Weave" collection saw beautiful actress Dia Mirza as testimonial, walking the ramp with her usual grace.

The Bollywood actress opened the show in a yellow flared net brocade skirt, followed by a group of models showcasing an eclectic mix of styles of contemporary taste: flowy skirts, palazzo pants, fine embroidered gowns and shirts embellished with vintage pastel shades, such as old rose, buttercup yellow, powder blue and pristine white.

The background music to the show was the contemporary folk tunes by songwriter Geetu Hinduja. This music perfectly matched the collection's spirit.

The rich weaves of Varanasi was the central element of The Anita Dongre Collection.

The designer Anita Dongre, otherwise known as the "textile revitalist", drew inspiration for this new collection from the finely handwoven fabrics from Varanasi.

She has used a lot of sheer designs shaped in blocks of different motifs, such as stripes, lattice work, triangles and floral jaal. These distinguish and give beauty to the Anita Dongre Dresses which are also, as usual, characterized by a solid lining.

What's next? Everyone seems to be impatient to see what designer Anita Dongre's new bridal collection will be like. Can't wait either!

The 2013 LFW Anita Dongre Collection

Last year The Anita Dongre Dresses were particularly different from this year's dresses. Her collection featured colourful and vibrant gowns with detailed embroidery. The designer Anita Dongre tried to evoke the idea of the independent, free-spirited woman. In the 2013 collection, Anita Dongre used beautiful, rich blues, powerful pinks and intriguing greens to create an overwhelmingly powerful collection that emphasised the strength of women.
