Day 3 at AIFW

Holla,

In this post, I’ll be sharing with you guys all that I saw on Day 3 of Amazon India Fashion Week, held at Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium (New Delhi) from 16th-20th March 2016.

Day 3 saw some fantastic jewelry and menswear collection. It started with Mine of Design by Sahai Ambar Pariddi which was inspired by the essence of the sea and saw some beautiful pearls and coral shells adorning the ensembles.

Next up was Valliyan by Nitya Arora. This was one show I was really looking forward to as I personally love her designs. Inspired by the Mughal dynasty, this collection was truly royal and magnificent in its own way.

The third in line among the jewelry designers was Vasundhara Mantri’s collection which integrated elements like leaves, twigs, branches, filigree, jeweled insects, bugs and natural rocks into wearable pieces of art. Archana Vijaya walked the ramp as the showstopper for this one.

Chandrani Singh Fllora‘s collection Mrityunjay was a tribute to Lord Shiva, with trishuls and cannabis leaves printed on the garments. Colors like midnight blue, ash grey, rich yellow, corroded rust and snow white ruled the outfits.

Shruti Sancheti’s collection was inspired by the intricacies of Islamic architecture and showcased modern cuts paired with quintessential handcrafted pieces. The surprise element was, the very beautiful Aditi Rao Haidri walking the ramp wearing a gorgeous piece from the same collection.

The next three shows showcased the best of menswear with Ujjwal Dubey’s Antar Agni, followed by Rohit Kamra and Divyam Mehta respectively. While Antar Agni was all about minimal and edgy silhouettes with pleated dhoti pants and asymmetrical kurtas, Rohit Kamra’s regal collection had an array of cut work and gingham jackets. We saw the dashing Randeep Hooda walk the ramp for him wearing a bandhgala and wowing the audiences with his charm. Divyam Mehta’s line included animal printed sneakers, double breasted suits, trench bandhgalas and desert boots. It was quite unique and left us asking for more. 🙂

Anupamaa by Anupama Dayal was inspired by Nagaland’s culture and brought some tribal elements on the ramp in the form of kaftans, wrap dresses, tunics, off shoulder tops, exotic headgears and the tribal makeup . The collection was vibrant and added a north eastern charm to the show.

Sanchita’s line was quite interesting to watch with boxy shapes, embroidered bomber jackets, shimmery sweatshirts, shirt dresses and polka dot tights highlighting her collection. The white hair wigs on the models surely made her show stand out from the rest.

And the best was saved for the last. Inspired by the European cavalries of the 18th and 19th centuries, Pankaj and Nidhi’s military collection was stunning to the core. From the colors to the fabrics, everything about this show was perfect.

 

 

Day 3 was a mix of everything and saw quite a few celebrities walking the runway for the designers. 🙂

I’ll be coming up next with Day 4 & Day 5 so stay tuned!  ❤

Happy Reading 😀

 

Ciao!
