'Anmi' is a line of contemporary ethnic clothing, inspired by the fact that every woman is unique in her own way. It offers a range of  contemporary ethnic wear like short and long 'kurtis', A-line  'kurta' to contemporary long 'kurtis' with palazzo and wide-legged pants.

"Our latest line offers pieces that can be transformed  into multiple styles and looks. A flared 'kurta' can be worn as  a dress or a long 'kurta' can be paired with denims. 'Anmi' has  always been about comfortable yet trendy clothing," explains  Rishi Vasudev, vice president, Flipkart Fashion.

Elaborating on each of the categories, Rishi says that 'Anmi'  targets the fashion forward women who love to wear their clothes  as an individualistic style statement. He says that 'Ikat'  range consists of geometric patterns structured in a attractive way and  those in the 'Indigo' range are crafted in blues and motifs that  breakaway from the traditional mould. "The 'Indigo' range is inspired by the indigo block prints of Jaipur, ensuring a fresh  contemporary look. Another addition to the collection is the  'Quirky' range which is vibrant, fresh, playful and totally  unorthodox, and finally the 'must-have' range has neat cuts  and is made of natural fabrics," says Rishi.

He adds that the designers have consciously used a myriad of  colours like pink, orange, yellows and Indigo. The designs are an  outcome of the research findings of the brand team.  "This  collection is popular with young women because we have  delivered exactly what the customer wants. The information that  we gather from our research is deep, specific and exhaustive. For  example, findings of what kind of consumer wears a mandarin  collar, what colour works in which demography, what fabrics  move the fastest off the shelves -- these insights lie at the very  foundation of our designing processes, along with a strong sense  of fashion aesthetic," says Rishi.
