Known for his radical runway styles, Amit Aggarwal showcased his Amazon Week 2017 couture collection along with Tarun Tahiliani for the Amazon India Fahion Week 2017 ‘guru-shishya’ theme. This is the first time that Amit presented a sustainable couture line, making green the new glam.
A sombre mood took over the runway as the audio-visual displayed stars gathering to make beautiful formation. A cold and arid landscape with the parched trees made the backdrop. “Daydreaming”, from the progressive rock band Radio Head, opened the show for the models to appear.
Drawing inspiration from the co-evolution of Earth’s natural topography and man’s material world, the leading designer put together a truly breathtaking collection.
True to his beliefs, Amit continues his journey of recycling and upcycling through his work. Beautiful pre-owned Patola Ikat and Benares antique brocades and antique borders took over the runway in the designer’s signature style. Amit Aggarwal showcased a stunning collection of dresses, lehengas and playful sarees.
The paradoxical play of the colour palette with combination in ink blue, rust, red, wine, emerald, royal blue, silver, gold, copper and black reflected the inspiration.
Patrons of the brand Archana Vijaya, Ambika Anand, Kalyani Chawla, Sabina Chopra graced the show with their presence.
