AIFW

We were rather disappointed to see the regulars missing this time around at the Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2018. But we did a little scouting to bring the best from AIFWAW18.

Here is our pick of the top 5 designers from the recently concluded fashion extravaganza.

Pero

Now this is one show we always look forward to. And to our surprise, we were transported to a candy land! Moving away from her staple colours- indigo, black and white, designer Aneeth Arora chose a vibrant colour palette this time around. Pink and corals brightened a rather gloomy winter. Printed florals complemented the checks.

Siddartha Tytler

Taking inspiration from Japanese rockstar warriors, Siddartha Tytler put together a sports-luxe collection- ‘Fuss’. It was a blend of street style and high street. Jogger pants, bomber jackets and boyfriend suits embroidered with metal hardware stood out.

 

Shyamal Bhumika

Shyamal and Bhumika Shodhan paid a tribute to the mood that is- Paris. The intricately designed collection consisted of dainty lace and silk saris, cocktail dresses, lehengas and more. The designers played with velvet and organza fabrics.

Sahil Kochhar

Sahil Kochhar’s Autumn Winter 2018 collection ‘Chitr’ was high on craftsmanship. Dark colour palette was contrasted with striking florals in mustard, bright red, beige and olive. There was use of applique. Semi sheer shirts and cape jackets stole the show. You know we love you Sahil!

 

Abraham and Thakore

Abraham and Thakore’s collection #SadakSmart was inspired by the streets of Delhi. There was an abundance of the duo’s signature monochromatic pieces. Though brown, beige and navy blues broke the monotony. There were loose-fitted pants, saris, trench coats, jumpsuits and the humble gamchha. Being AT muses this season, we have to confess our bias towards the designers.

Day 1 at the fashion week is usually the most happening. That’s also the day we bunk office and strut our way through (considering day jobs don’t give us the liberty of attending all days) the festival venue. And we continued with the tradition for AIFWSS18.

A lot of you ask us as to what conspires at a fashion week besides the shows ofcourse! So here we give you a little round-up of what our Day 1 at Amazon Indian Fashion Week Spring Summer 2018 looked like.

RockNShop was our sartorial saviour for the day and surely some heads did turn as we made our entry at the venue- NSIC Ground, Okhla, New Delhi. Can’t tell you how much we miss Pragati Maidan hosting the week 🙁 But such is life.

 

 

Meeting long lost friends from media, PR, brands,designers, models, etc is what we love doing the most (did someone say networking, sshhhh…). On top of the agenda is also finishing our collaboration work before we let our guards down!

Amanda sure loves her phone

Hobnobbing, attending pre/post show parties, checking out the lounges, designer stall in exhibit areas and yeah an energy shot is what we do next.

At the CIVIL HOUSE pop up

And ofcourse how can we miss attending the shows. Our favourite from Day 1 has to be Nida Mahmood.

Lastly, we do keep our eyes open for all the STREET STYLE inspiration.

The much awaited Amazon India Fashion Week AW 17 has concluded and we couldn’t have asked for more! We could pellucidly identify fashion trends that are going to make their presence felt this Autumn-Winter.

Wanna have a look at who created the buzz and caught our attention? Have a look at what was #OnFleek this season at #AIFWAW17

Ruffle & Flounce on Fleek!

Hemant & Nandita’s take on AW 17 was absolutely refreshing. They managed to balance the femininity with a little sleekness or ease — think asymmetrical dresses, ruffled dresses with floral print and flounce with subtle hues; styled effortlessly with cover ups and jackets.


Gypsy on Fleek!

In recent seasons, a handful of fashion designers have put some effort towards diversity and truly embracing individuality during the fashion week shows. Aneeth Arora from Péro is one such designer among the few who manages to work her signature fabric “Madras Checks” in various themes.  Inspired by expeditions in South America and China, Péro came out as a champion for creating such diversity. PS: How can we not mention the #DeadLocks and the choreography that made the garments look alive!


Sustainable Fashion on Fleek!

H&M’s commitment to eco friendly fashion via H&M Concious at AIFW this season was absolutely #OnFleek. From jewellery to minimalist silhouettes to luxe, faux-leather accessories, it was all a part of the eco-fashion movement. “Shopping has never been so guilt-free.”


Saris on Fleek!

Vogue celebrated the most symbolic and timeless piece of clothing, the sari by highlighting the diversity of the garment in its full glory in terms of  fabric, handloom weaves and multiple draping techniques. Some of India’s most celebrated designers came together to showcase almost 60 saris to mark the onset of Vogue’s 10th anniversary in the Indian Market.

Well yes we know the official fashion week season is over  but our roaming street style lens continues to document fashion scenes captured exclusively during the fashion week this season!

You might imagine Fashion Week as a glittering parade of bloggers, models, and editors in the season’s biggest trends and teetering heels. However the truth is that this season everyone opted for solely sneakers or quirky flats .

The anticipation running up to day one of FDCI’s Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2016 was met with a spectacular opening with an ode to #IndiaModern as the theme.

If we had to pick our favorite from day 1 it has to be the designer duo, Hemant and Nandita. Their collection appealed to us the most. It was nearly impossible to pick a favorite look from their AW 16 collection. Each one featured an alluring and surprising color combination. From deep midnight blues to earthy tones and charcoal greys. Black and Red— a favorite combo of ours— were paired often, and in this particular look, the duo mixed textures in a very successful way.

Shirts and dresses in sheeny jacquard lend the right amount of metallic edge to bind the look together. A generous amount of layering with bold cover ups and jackets and droopy shoulder seams weaved magic on the runway.

We are sure that this collection will truly mark the onset of Autumn Winter this year.

I overheard a guy saying ” I spend a lot of my time looking into a girl’s handbag- with her permission ofcourse!” I don’t know about the permission part but what I do know is looking for something in a girl’s bag is like finding a needle in a haystack 🙂 For a girl her bag is her world. It’s like she can literally run away with it 🙂

That’s why I wanted a perfect fashion week partner for myself which would have stuffed in everything from my mood to my camera. Nothing could have been better than the Layla Bucket Bag in Tan from Vitasta Design.

The recently concluded Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2015, had a multitude of designers showcasing their creations. We bring you our TOP 3 picks.

Hemant & Nandita

BOHO CARAVAN was call of the day with Hemant&Nandita’s nomadic ode to the garments. Floral thread embroideries and ethnic prints stood out on the runway. Cosy blanket overcoats and capes are a perfect partner for those chilly evenings. With the free flowing silhouettes, the collection was truly about EFFORTLESS CHIC.

Playing with the idea of ALTER EGO, Aneeth Arora presented the stories of real life people and their uniformed selves. Taking a cue from MILITARY, the collection was ANDROGYNOUS best. The mundane is spiced up with that stitch of pocket or colorful buttons.

Payal Singhal

Payal’s NEO INDIAN collection is an ode to the women of today. Use of light weight fabrics such as organza, silk, tulle and pastel colours dusk blue and rose blush break the conventions of the usual bridal wear.

Check out our roundup of the TOP FOUR FASHION TRENDS from the Autumn/Winter 15 season below:

1) Bohemian Rhapsody

In our opinion #AIFW’s Fashion Viewing was a lot about the “Bohemian Revival” – from tribal gypsy dresses to capes teamed with kimonos – these were the primary components of collections by Hemant and Nandita , Malini Ramani and of course Pia Pauro.

The colour palate comprised of muted tones of dusky browns, smoke greys, mustards, dull reds highlighted with a bunch of pop abstract details.

 Battlefield to Runway

As we know military-inspired clothing is a classic concept that has been around for years. And, you wouldn’t be surprised to see that army apparel has once again taken over the runways and is preparing to conquer closets this A/W 15. – The talented designer Aneeth Arora of Péro lent her attention to the military uniforms by giving it a chic twist with a message of “Make Love Not War”.
