Joy Mitra’s collection titled “An evening at the Town Hall” at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring- Summer 2013 had taken inspiration from colonial India. “My collection talks about town hall in India during the British era. It’s an amalgamation of Indian and western taste.
I have tried to do use lot of Indian garment and give it a modern feel. So when you see the anarkalis, there are few which are influenced by Victorian era and have both an anarkali and a gown feel to it. One can wear it both ways,” Joy told reporters.
The collection consisted of lehangas, gowns, saris and dresses teamed up with jackets on the fabrics that vary from georgette, chiffon and silk.
