​Sara Tendulkar looks Shaadi-ready in a sheer lehenga at Anita Dongre’s ‘Rewild ’23’ | – Times of India


Talk of the town, Sara Tendulkar stunned at ace designer Anita Dongre’s fashion showcase held in Jaipur recently. Set against the iconic City Palace in her home city and eternal muse Jaipur, Anita Dongre presented her craft-led couture show, Rewild’23 to help raise funds and awareness towards nature and elephant conservation.
Sara, who’s in news these days for reportedly dating Indian cricketer Shubman Gill, stunned in a black and maroon sheer lehenga designed by none other than Anita Dongre.
The beauty finished her look with a fishtail braid, minimalistic makeup and a maang tikka. She looked stunning.

The show proved to be a landmark weekend full of glamour, royalty and fashion, guests were treated to an immersive cultural experience that embodied the ethos of the designer and will be remembered and spoken about for years to come. A pioneer and proponent of purpose-driven fashion, sustainability and women empowerment has always been at the forefront for Anita Dongre. The debut chapter of Rewild was co-hosted by Princess Gauravi Kumari of the royal family of Jaipur. Supported by Kartiki Gonsalves, the Academy award-winning documentary maker and photographer who stepped in as the advisory partner, the funds raised went to the Nature Conservation Foundation (NCF) to amplify their project in South India addressing human-elephant conflict and promoting peaceful coexistence.
Rewild’23 intertwined fashion with a crucial call to preserve our planet’s extraordinary wildlife and pristine habitats. While the show itself was the crown jewel, the weekend of events also moved the gaze towards the Princess Diya Kumari Foundation (PDKF), a collective focused on the economic independence of the women of Rajasthan. The organisation promotes social entrepreneurship working with women to provide training in stitching and handicrafts, facilitating health initiatives, promoting education for girls and skill building to create sustainable livelihoods. An exclusive visit to the foundation was arranged for select media that were taken in pink e-rickshaws driven by women to interact with the artisans and the hosts. Anita and Gauravi also announced their new collaboration to launch Grassroot Home with the women artisans of PDKF.

“The exquisite art and cultural chaos of Jaipur is my inherited legacy and inspiration. Rewild has been a passion project years in the making, and it was a dream come true to showcase it at City Palace where I have so many fond memories.” It was here the designer first met Lekhraj-ji, a Pichhwai artist who was restoring the fading ceilings of the palace. As they got talking, Anita realised the only way to keep his intricate craft alive was by creating work beyond restoration. Since then, the designer and artisan, have collaborated to bring the hand-painted craft of Pichhwai to couture pieces that are widely regarded as art collectables and have gone to become a signature of the brand. She continues, “This show is a way for me to put the spotlight on India’s craft heritage and India’s threatened wildlife. I’m thrilled to have Princess Gauravi Kumari by my side on this journey to revive and rewild,” said Dongre on the sidelines of the show.
The couture collection showcased, brought this conversation to the ramp featuring global contemporary silhouettes that encourage you to wear crafts beyond traditional settings of weddings – whether on a red carpet, a cocktail party or a celebratory brunch – thus bringing the old into the new. The collection features embroideries by the women artisans of SEWA, Rajasthan’s own Gota-patti and hand-painted Pichhwai. Every garment features abundant foliage and exuberant wildlife of Indian forests. Intricately embroidered and hand-painted elephants and birds interspersed with trees and florals dance harmoniously across the entire collection, bringing to life the message of co-existing peacefully with nature.
