The 27th edition of the Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn-Winter 2016 in association with Maybelline New York has started in Delhi.
Day 1 schedule:
Varun Bahl opening the first day with his Fall collection called ‘Nocturne.’With simple and classic cuts, the collection had jackets, bombers, and tunics which can be mixed naturally with slim trousers and A-line skirts, frills that add romance to the walk, and circular-cut flounces with owls, squirrels, pineapples, pomegranate and other such fantasy things about forests as motifs.
Akaaro by Gaurav jai Gupta:
Akaaro’s collection featured handwoven silhouettes in dark and muted colors with bright color accents. The Akaaro collection featured geometric inspirations with feminine yet contemporary silhouettes and handwoven, striped, thread stitched accents. Lots of metallics and blacks blended with contemporary silhouettes were some the sartorial statements that we absolutely loved.
Hemant & Nandita:
Hemant & Nandita’s showcased bohemian silhouettes in romantic blush tones and reds. The collection seemed to be inspired by deep and dark beauty namely, “A Dark Enchantress”. Statement accessory detailing & embroidered bomber jackets in pop color accents were some head turning fashion statements we loved. An abundance of dark blooms, golden foil (shimmer) and boho silhouettes, soft wavy hair and dark bold lips seemed to be the hottest trend.
‘Not So Serious’ by Pallavi Mohan:
Pallavi Mohan’s ‘Synthesis’ collection was an amalgamation of what she has learnt over past few years. Laser cut leathers, kaleidoscope of organza elements and shingled panels, intricate hand details and succulent florals dominated her collection on fabrics ranging from woolens, soft velvet, silk organza and satins, making the collection a perfect winter wardrobe.
Shantanu & Nikhil:
Shantanu Nikhil “The Last Walk” collection was full of romantic blush tones and reds. Gorgeous silhouettes and sculpted gowns with hints of drapes & laces, fused with intricate layers of laser cuts were the elements that made the show a fabulous hit. The bride at the show wore a white sculpted gown detailed with unusual drapes and lots of elegance were all a part of this romantic collection.
Kiran Uttam Ghosh:
Kiran Uttam Ghosh’s collection featured sarees, capes, dresses in deconstructed silhouettes and feminine drapes in shades of reds and golds and oodles of elegance were all a part of this splendid collection.
Rina Dhaka’s collection was an eclectic one with the sparkles taking over the woollens in geometric accents and modern chic silhouettes in the hues revolving around browns,blacks and whites. If this is what she has in store for us, the winter of ’16 sure looks promising!
Gaurav Gupta closed the day with his show and his signature style designs at the India Fashion Week. He showcased a collection that was all about full blown unmatched glamour. Sequins, bugle beads, sparkle and all things glitter took over the ramp and it was all sexy! Dramatic drapes were juxtaposed with his signature structures in a dreamy palette. Sexy and sensual, it was all that we saw at the saw!
