Reviving Rajasthan
On the occasion of the launch of Pinkcity, Anita Dongre said, “Pinkcity is a natural extension of our fashion line, and jewellery forms an integral part of the wedding trousseau. The collection is all about revisiting the traditional crafts of Rajasthan and celebrating it with the vibrancy of current trends. It is perfect for the modern Indian, who whilst being the pallbearerof modernism never compromises on his core values and tradition.” Describes the jewellery line, Anita Dongre says, “I started out designing jaali work gold buttons and cufflinks for men and eventually thought of doing an entire collection for men and women. I am most excited about the men’s buttons and cufflinks, which are available in interchangeable colours and are versatile enough to be worn with a classy jacket or even a traditional bandhgala – a must have for an Indian man.”
