Hello girls! It has been such a long time since I wrote a post. But I am finally back, and back with an details of an interesting event for all you lovely ladies. So sit back with a cup of coffee while I take you through a virtual tour of the recently happened Amazon India Fashion Week.
Jharcraft’s impressive and elegant line up comprised of draped saris in delicate hues. The collection also showcased white and metallic lehengas, anarkalis and long jackets designed dexterously by Dabiri. Rina Dhaka’s striped separates with minute details, jackets, capes, and pleated skirts by Pinnacle by Shruti Sancheti. It was a perfect blend of style, elegance and creativity.
Abraham and Thakore
The designer duo presented workwear in a completely new way. They chose soothing colours like indigo, ivory, red, black, etc. and pure cotton fabric to beat the heat. The ready to wear collection was totally functional and practically.
Madhu Jain’s collection wowed the audience as she presented salwar suits, saris in right and traditional fabrics. However, the patolas and ikats with a pinch of gold stole the show.
The rich and vibrant collection had dhoti pants, Ombre separates, lehengas and anarkalis. It was a hard to resist line up which is quintessential for the party season.
Mint greens, burnt oranges, browns were the colours chosen by the very talented Novita Yunus. Up to the minute sarong style skirts, cutwork jackets, culottes, were the stunners. But I was more impressed by the very different accessories that complemented the collection beautifully.
The Handloom School
The Handloom School worked closely with 9 designers for the Day 1 show which was supported by Good Earth. For more than 9 months, the designers had been working with the weavers as well as textile designers of The Handloom School. The aim of this show was to bring the designers and the handloom weavers closer. Pero, Akaaro by Gaurav Jai Gupta, Eka, Antar Agni, Good Earth, Nicobar, Rohit Bal, Neeru Kumar, Rajesh Pratap Singh were the designers who participated in this show.
Pero brought the Latin America’s gypsy vibes to the ramp with loose dresses, stylish jackets and floral embroideries. Exaggerated hair styles, tassel bags made it a fun to watch show.
Pankaj and Nidhi
Pankaj and Nidhi worked with embellishments and basic textures. The monochrome collection with a hint of blue stood apart from the crowd.
This time Vineet Bahl showed us more of contemporary wear than his usual aesthetics. He exhibited a collection full of everyday wear with a touch of leather and fur to add that element of sophistication and elegance.
Patine’s collection of chic style denims, jumpsuits and jackets was all about adding a touch of elegance to the normal wears.
Hemant and Nandita
Hemant and Nandita’s collection was inspired by autumn. Olive greens, peachy pinks with floral and garden prints made it a soothing and crispy collection. A lot of coats, jackets, ruffle dresses were seen.
Anupamaa by Anupama Dayal
Anupama Dayal’s colourful line up had silk maxis and slit dresses in bright pinks, reds and greens.
This was a truly inspiring collection with ultra-modern burkas, sheer dresses, denims and hooded jackets.
Smanat Chauhan’s line up was a tribute to the beauty and the versatility of muga silk of Assam. The designer expressed his childhood railway journeys of childhood onto the fabrics. The white and gold collection depicted maize, wheat stalks and flowers that he witnessed in the region.
So the first 2 days were full of enthusiasm, inventiveness and smoothness.
Stay tuned to know about the following 2 days.
