Anita Dongre on Styling First Lady Sophie Trudeau

Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, the wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, was spotted in a yellow Chanderi suit by Indian designer Anita Dongre during her ongoing India trip.

The Canadian prime minister is on an eight-day trip to India with his wife and children Ella-Grace Margaret Trudeau, Hadrien Trudeau and Xavier James Trudeau. After a short trip to the Taj Mahal, the family landed in Ahmedabad where they visited Akshardham temple.

Gregoire made instant headlines and caught the eye of fashion-critics when she appeared in a yellow chanderi suit from Anita's collection. She looked ever-so elegant.  

“I was so pleased to see our yellow chanderi suit on the ever-so-elegant Sophie Gregoire Trudeau. It was such a lovely surprise to find that a global personality like hers chose one of our designs,” Dongre told PTI.  

Though her designs are uber traditional, focusing on the rich cultural heritage of India - its her choice of silhouettes that can be worn internationally is the reason for her worldwide popularity. 

 

The designer’s outfits were previously worn by various dignitatories such as the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and Queen Mathilde of Belgium.

Here are some pictures of them dressed in Dongre's Designs:
