It was a bit of a somber mood this time around at Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2018. Call it the low turnout, missing big names or star power, the usual buzz was missing at AIFWAW18. Guess the only thing making our day brighter were the outfits from Abraham and Thakore.

We attended two days of the fashion extravaganza (gone are the days of attending all five days) and spent time watching shows, exploring the exhibition area, hobnobbing and ofcourse get photographed!

Matching the venue’s monochromatic aesthetics were our all Black and White outfits from Abraham & Thakore. While Amanda decided to go out of her comfort zone with this sari (doesn’t she carry it off with elan?) , I got back to basics with a kurta tunic and pants. We definitely had to give it a twist (see the belts)!

Here, check these out.

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 HONOR lounge

 

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.

At the ripe age of 30 when most women get married, have kids and think it’s the end of life for them, Guneet Gyani Gupta had the courage to follow her dreams. Dream of pursuing a career in fashion, dream of being a certified scuba diver. And boy she did it!

Guneet’s journey has been nothing less than inspirational. An Engineer by training, Marketing Executive by profession and Fashionista by passion, Guneet has been shortlisted for the famed Haut Monde Mrs India Worldwide beauty pageant as one of the finalists. And all this, while pursuing a full time career with Amazon India as a Marketing Manager and managing her home and husband to perfection.

Being an army kid, Guneet travelled across the country being schooled at multiple places and interacting with all kinds of people. But conventional wisdom prevailed on her and she decided to study Engineering. Mid-way through, she realised that this is something she doesn’t like but went onto finish her degree. Her inclination towards fashion encouraged her to participate in beauty pageants while in college but she never took it up professionally. Post engineering, she quickly did a course correction and pursued a career in Marketing Communication.

Guneet: The Adventure Freak

 

She met her future husband over Salsa classes while working at TCS and they got hitched in 2013. But the inkling to win a crown was always there. It was NOW or NEVER for her. “I want to tell all the women out there that life doesn’t stop after marriage. You don’t have to give up on one thing to get another”, she says. With the support from her husband and family, Guneet finally decided to pursue her dreams. She wants to become an influencer whose voice people hear to drive change. Working towards conservation of marine eco-system is one such cause.

 

Guneet: The Salsa Dancer

 

Today Guneet has a successful career with an MNC, a loving family and time to pursue her dreams. “Women are naturally good at multi-tasking; it’s just about organising and planning things well. It’s never too late to follow your dreams”, she concludes.

 

Guneet’s Quick Fix

  1. The craziest thing you have ever done- Mountain climbing without a guide
  2. Describe yourself in three words- Adventurous, Fashionable, Hard-working
  3. Your comfort food- Italian
  4. Your Fashion idol- Sonam Kapoor

When it comes to Pero by Aneeth Arora, there can never be a dull moment on the ramp. This time around, she took us down the memory lane when we were carefree school kids.

The designer played with black and white colours. There were ginghams of varying sizes. Floral block prints were used at places to break the monotony.

Taking inspiration from the pomp of military uniform, designer duo of Pankaj & Nidhi spinned magic at #AIFWAW16.

Keeping the season in mind, fabrics like marino wool and heavy crepes have been used in earthy hues of olive and ochre and greens. Braids, cord work, medals and  badges have been used as embellishments.
