New Delhi, March 19 (IANS) The four-day long fashion extravaganza of Autumn-Winter 2017 edition of Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) ended on a spectacular note when “Guru Shishya” duo Tarun Tahiliani and Amit Aggarwal showcased more than 80 garments together on ramp and left fashionistas asking for more.
The four-day long event concluded late on Saturday with a beautiful amalgamation of traditional fabrics and silhouettes with modern day cuts and textures. Themed on “Fresh New Look”, a campaign by Amazon Fashion, the finale was nothing less than a master class in innovation with a mix of both bespoke couture and fusion ready to wear collections.
The highpoint of the show apart from the wonderfully designed jungle inspired ramp area was the designer’s love for drapes. While Aggarwal’s collection was a combination of winter prints like florals, geometrics and hand painted motifs developed on fabrics like charmeuse, georgette, chanderi and textures like tulle overlaid with braids and laces.
Tahiliani presented his take on contemporary Indian wear with relatable ready to wear lothing. Combining sensuous occasion wear with dramatic flair, the designer paid homage to construction, draping and fit with his designs.
“It is a pleasure and exciting to be showing at the AIFW finale. A culmination of a week of ideas of where Indian fashion will head, the definition of new trends, and what are the ‘Fresh New Looks’- which is the recurrent theme and a signature campaign by Amazon Fashion.
“This is also a fusion of ideas as I show alongside one of my old proteges who has morphed into his own master with mastery over his own particular techniques and sculptural fashion,” said Tahiliani.
Though many complained of the show to be little long but with 80 costumes and each piece telling its own story, it was a show worth watching.
