The first day of Amazon India Fashion Week AIFW A/W’18 saw a high dose of winter colours, and then came the second day with some fresh vibes of silhouettes with a hint of monochrome and more. Scroll through to get the highlight of the day.
Nitin Bal Chauhan
The much-awaited comeback of Nitin Bal Chauhan was truly worth a watch. His comeback show addressed immigration crisis by showcasing a world where millions of people have become homeless and have been displaced. To depict the same the designer used scattered seam lines, shifted pockets and plackets and oversized clothes.
Every time she makes sure to create a splash of colours and this time too she made it evident with her collection titled ‘The High Priestess’. Use of dip-dyed drapes, tribal influences, regal capes, sequins, and mirrors were the key elements at Malini Ramani’s show.
Vineet Bahl’s collection attempted to reinterpret historical culture in a modern update of the sartorial style of the Balkan states. Several hand-beading and embroidery techniques were found throughout the designer’s showcase along with Arabic motifs.
His interpretation of royalty in the modern world with a hint of traditional flavours has placed him at the top the game at present. His latest collection saw a balanced flow of Jodhpuris, hunting safaris, achkans and sherwanis paired with breeches, polo and rider pants. The design story was highlighted in the shades of inky black, midnight blue, dusky tan with a hint of rustic metallics.
Pawan Sachdeva gave a spin to casual wear in signature blacks, whites and greys. With Kartik Aaryan as the showstopper, the collection saw trench jackets, relaxed trousers and hoodies teamed with fur slip-ons.
Karishma Deepa Sondhi
With curvy Bipasha Basu, the evening mood was all set by Karishma Deepa Sondhi’s show that had a lot of tassels, sheers, and frills. The twisted tale of ethnic wear with the off-shoulder blouses and fluid skirts were truly appreciated by the fashion critics.
