Summer updates

We've just added some more goodies to our summer collection at Anusha. Here are a couple of my favourites, modelled by the lovely Josephine:

Our beautiful bandhani shawl features a hand-printed design in nude, pink and raspberry. This stunning shawl will transform any outfit with its gorgeous design, and keep you looking stylish as the sun goes down. Looks great worn loosely round the neck with jeans and a T-shirt as well.

A maxi dress is a great look for summer, and it's a trend that's still going strong this summer. Team our Gabrielle blue maxi version with flip-flops and a long pendant necklace for a dreamy feel.

A passage to India

April is turning out to be yet another busy month at Anusha. After a record-breaking March (the response to the new collection has been truly phenomenal - I'm so glad you like it!), we've decided to add some new goodies to our summer collection.

I'm pleased to be stocking pieces by a lovely designer who we worked with a few years ago. Her latest collection includes stunning shift dresses and scarves made from silk using traditional bandhani techniques. Bandhani originates from Rajasthan and Gujurat in India, and the technique involves hand-knotting the silk with thread and then dying it to create the most beautiful prints (a bit like tie-dying, but much more intricately done).

Having visited both Rajasthan and Gujurat in 1998, seeing these silks has made me rather nostalgic for India (and more determined than ever to take Mr Anusha to that amazing country one day!).

The new pieces will be available online in a couple of weeks.
