The first day of Amazon India Fashion Week kicked off with Sanjay Garg of the Raw Mango showcasing his collection at the brand new venue, NSIC grounds in Okhla, New Delhi. Heavy on hand-woven fabrics and silk the first day of the event was full of surprises. Here’s everything you need to know.
The opening of this event was nothing short of extraordinary with the runway decked in outfits from Sanjay Garg’s spring summer collection. Raw silk and plain cotton were the main highlights with intricate work in gold on shades of pink, red and blue.
Hand-woven fabrics took the center stage on the first day of the Amazon India Fashion Week with designers like Anavila Misra and Vaishali S showcasing ethnic silhouettes made from raw silk and cotton.
Rabani and Rakha’s collection showcased the perfect balance of chic and ethnic with a modern twist on sarees. The one outfit that really caught our eye was the white sheer and pearl saree with the mermaid drape done to perfection.
Androgyny also made an appearance with designer Vineet Bahl’s lineup that included floral boxy tops paired with tapered pants in shades of pink, blue and yellow.
Staying true to the season’s requirement, pastels made the obvious comeback at Amazon India Fashion Week Spring Summer 16 with Kavita Bhartia’s collection but this time with bold embellishments and in a variety of silhouettes.
Designers Shivan & Narresh concluded the day with their art-inspired collection in collaboration with the kitchen and bath specialty brand Kohler. The collection took inspiration from Kohler’s Couture offerings and was an amalgamation of trikinis, draped trankinis, resort sarees, and bikinis. What’s more, it was presented at the landmark Imperial Hotel in Delhi and made for the perfect offsite show.
