Amazon India Fashion Week AW16 - Day 1 - Highlights

Wednesday 30 March 2016

Hey lovelies!

I know it's a bit late, but well I had to post my favorites and the highlights from the recently held Amazon India Fashion Week in the capital.
The 5-day long Fashion event had a new venue this time - Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Lodhi Road - with the main theme of India Modern.

The opening show of the Autumn Winter'2016 season of Amazon India Fashion Week was presented by the talented designer Varun Bahl who marked his return to ready-to-wear category after five years.

His collection was a tropical delight with easy-to-style, wearable pieces featuring embroidery in the forms of owls, jellyfish, horses and more. The feminine silhouettes and soft colors added helped bring out the intricate details of the outfits.

My favorite show of the day was by my favorite designers : Shantanu & Nikhil who again proved why they are the perfectionists with their delicate drapes and silhouttes.

The floor-sweeping gowns and skirts teamed up with structured jackets were the highlights of their show.

The designer duo Hemant and Nandita showcased a collection called “The Dark Enchantress” which focused on an earthy color palette that included colors like browns, deep reds and midnight blues.

The collection featured easy-to-style outerwear like embroidered jackets, trench coats, fur collars, and more.

Designer Kiran Uttam Ghosh showcased her ethnic collection which highlighted the use of silver, blending it with colors like red, blue, beige and more in the form of deilcate motifs, mukaish work and embroidery.

 Designer Rina Dhaka's collection reflected Autumn-winter in true style with knitwear silhouettes that are perfect for the season. The collection highlighted features like off-shoulder styles, boat necks and ruffles which added to the woven details of the dresses.

The collection Synthesis by Not So Serious by Pallavi Mohan featured an amalgamation of various elements like laser cut leathers, intrcate hand details, fabric manipulation and more in fabrics like wool. velvet, organza and satin.

Gaurav Gupta showcased his unique collection based on the concept of Zero Waste ie. draping the entire width of fabric in the given garment.

The collection featured gowns, jackets and frockcoats in fabrics like neoprene, silks and sparkling jersey.

Which one of these was your favorite from the Day 1 of AIFW16?
