It’s a wrap
Fashion extravaganza Amazon India Fashion Week saw a fitting finale with veteran designers Amit Aggarwal and Tarun Tahiliani closing the event at the Grand Finale show on Saturday evening at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. Themed on ‘Fresh New Look’ the designers presented a eclectic mix of traditional fabrics and silhouettes draped and tailored to contemporary tastes.
The designers presented bespoke couture and pret collections catering to every fashion sensibility. Aggarwal discovered the abundant beauty of the earth with this sustainable fashion collection which featured recycling and upcyling couture through the use of pre owned Patola sarees and Banarsi brocades.
Designer Tarun Tahiliani combined sensuous evening wear with a dramatic flair with this collection inspired by the nomadic beauty of Indian tribes along with motifs from Mughal armory-inspired art. The collection featured ensembles that can be worn from day to night or dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Staying true to the theme, the designers crafted an array of looks across traditional and contemporary lines.
When it comes to sustainable designs, global high street giant H&M previewed a capsule collection of their Conscious Exclusive 2017 Collection at the event. The Conscious Exclusive is the brand's recurring fashion collection and one of the pillars of H&M's sustainability efforts. Each individual piece on display showed a different way that sustainable materials can create a fresh new style through BIONIC® – a recycled polyester made from plastic shoreline waste. Spotted at the H&M preview was Bollywood actress Dia Mirza.
