Fashion revelers rejoice once again as another season of The Amazon India Fashion Week commenced on 12th October with much fanfare and hullabaloo at the NSIC Grounds, Okhla in New Delhi. Among excited lovers of fashion, these 5 days are like a mini fest where they not only get to witness the most fresh styles of the season first hand but also get a chance to steal the limelight themselves in the parade of quirk and class that ensues outside the show exhibit area. After parties, numerous press coverages, fashion enthusiasts trying to grab eyeballs with their styles and statements, mini fashion shoots of WHAT WE WORE are common sights during the 5 days of the AIFW. This year was no different.
Here is a little summary of what I saw at the AIFW SS’17 DAY 1 as the first lot of designers opened the fashion week in style-
OPENING SHOW- ROAD TO CHANDERI
Reviving the age old hand-loom tradition of Chanderi, this collection was a Maha collaboration by 16 well known designers who highlighted the Beauty of the textile in their collection. Models strutted down the ramp wearing some raw and some colorful Chanderi outfits that.Each one of the 16 designers interpreted the fine fabric in their own style but my favorite was Paromita Banerjee’s deconstructed silhouettes.
This Grecian and Aryan civilization inspired collection took form in Samant’s signature white and beige creations with well defined structures and impeccable detailing.
Her collection has always stood out for it fun element and this season Rina made sure she had done all the trend checks right. Applique, trendy separates, sheer and florals were seen aplenty in her bright spring summer collection.
With some interesting jackets, gowns and sarees in various colors, the Curious Alice collection was a fine amalgamation of quirk and wearable. The eye make up was also something to watch out for!
That was it for Day 1. Do let me know what you think about it. More Trend updates to follow soon!
