Fashion designer Aneeth Arora’s show inspired by Pippi Longstocking, the protagonist of Astrid Lindgren’s eponymous series of children’s books, became one of the most appreciated presentations at Amazon Indian Fashion Week 2016 Autumn/Winter.
Under her label Pero, the Delhi-based designer, who became season’s favourite last year with her cute and quirky “Pajama Party” collection, had a successful walk this time as well.
With her signature checks and lines, Aneeth took Pippi and the audience on a nostalgic trip to school, set close to the beautiful Poppy fields. The show saw models dressed as Pippi Longstocking, wearing comfortable yet trendy monochrome dresses, jackets, jumpsuits with poppys adding tint of red.
Keeping in mind the season the collection is designed for, Aneeth used woolen fabrics like angora, pashmina, gingham and merino along with embroidery throughout her range. Khadi, chanderi, denim with lace details also made a significant appearance here and there.

The silhouettes were well crafted with signature longstockings of Pippi and boots completing the look. Sporting the Pippi hairdo, models played, walked and enjoyed on the ramp with live music in the background.
The band, who was also a part of the classroom scene created on the ramp, put the show together not with the help of any conventional musical instruments, but props like chalk, duster, pen, lunchbox, blackboard and bench.
With everything in place and on time, Pero undoubtedly shined as one of the most memorable shows of this season.
