“Shada-Kaalo-Shurjo” by Aneela Haque

Ekushey is not only a day to mourn but to celebrate the martyrs who gave their lives for our beloved mother tongue. It should be observed with much positivity and flair. Aneela thematically designed her 21 February collection as “Shada-Kaalo-Shurjo” in white and black as we write every alphabet in black and white.

The collection covers long and short khadi panjabis, shirts and graphical cotton saris with contrast blouses. Red scarves as shurjo (the sun) symbolise victory and complement the black and white attires as marks of positivity.
