So here we are with all the happenings of the Day-3, 4 & 5 of the Amazon India Fashion S/S 2017.
Ka Sha by Karishma Shahani Khan
The designer’s collection was a rich riot of happy colours worthy of elevating the mood. The trench coats, the dresses and everything else was incorporated with some vibrant tassels and extremely bold patterns with a pinch of playfulness.
Anju Modi’s all blue collection was aptly titled “Neelambar” and was inspired by the beauty of the midnight sky. The evergreen traditional separates inspired by the architectural detailings were breath-taking. Shoes by Needledust and the bold and sculpted accessories designed by Roma Narsinghani complemented the line up very well.
Shivan and Narresh
The designer duo is known to be inspired a lot for their collection from the world of art. But for their latest collection, the well-known expressionist Egon Schiele (The Egon Series) was the one. They sent a very impressive colour story on the ramp which presented nature in Art Nouveau style. 2 latest elements were presented by the designers i.e. the Flute lehengaa and Velvetrene. There couldn’t have been a better backdrop than a lakeside Viennese style celebration for presenting the collection.
Namrata Joshipura’s collection was spun around the Big Apple. It had sporty separates as well as gorgeous gowns. The finishing touches to the silhouettes with substantial fringes and some lustrous sequins was a smart move by the designer.
Schulen Fernandes for Wendell Rodricks
Living upto the geometric philosophy of Wendell Rodricks, Schulen Fernandes presented rose in its cubist avatar. Structured yet voluminous silhouettes spun in graceful fabrics were seen on the ramp.
Shikha Grover and Vinita Adhikari’s collection ranged from the very elegant sarees to chic modern dresses. Their collection was a bunch of easy but super elegant silhouettes in shades of green, blue and black.
Tarun Tahiliani and Amit Aggarwal
So this was all about the veteran designers interpretations of the Fresh New Look concept of Amazon. With 80 looks on the runway, the collection’s main highlights were the upcycled Benarsi brocades and the Patola Saris.
Forbidden Fruit which was the collection of Felix Bendish for the season was an impressive collection of handcrafted accessories made of nickel-free metal. Each and every piece was stamped with a hint of the fabled serpent in order to highlight the man’s fall off the grace and his awakening consequently.
Ambar Pariddi Sahai
Ambar Pariddi’s heritage collection gave the experience of the ancient treasures. Showcasing ostentatious jewels, the designer worked with ghungaroos and vintage coins.
Rehane’s line up had laser cut dresses and lovely beach cover-ups. The aqua silk silhouettes were spellbinding.
Soltee by Sulakshana Monga
Sulakshana Monga’s collection had stylish floor-grazing red carpet-worthy gowns. The super feminine gowns had form-flattering cuts.
So this was all about the last season of AIFW. Hope you have already picked up trends for the season!!
