#AIFWAW17: Tarun Tahiliani & Amit Aggarwal’s Grand Finale On Day 4
The last day of the Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2017 included a lot of structured architecture in bright colours, along with hints of androgyny in monochromes. It was a good mix of eclectic and fashion-forward styles that brought on the traditional with a contemporary spin — especially the creative and innovative methods of draping the saree.

Let’s start with the highlight of the day — the collaborative grand finale by Amit Aggarwal and Tarun Tahiliani. Taking Amazon’s ‘Fresh New Look’ concept, both designers brought their signature aesthetics to the stage, in the form of 80 looks showcased on the ramp. Purely focussing on upcycling Benarasi brocades and Patola sarees through rather structured silhouettes, Amit Aggarwal stuck by his label’s philosophy.
Mughal armory-inspired, Tarun Tahiliani’s RTW line was glamour-centric and divided into 8 different styles — Renaissance Stripes, Constructed Drapes, Mondrian Damask, Polka, Kashuti, Chikankari, Golden Weave, and Hussar. With edgy ensembles and concept sarees with a lot of sophistication, the rich jewel tones brought both designers’ collections together for a spectacular end to the showcase.
Contemporary robes, kimonos, oversized buttons, and turtle necks was what Munkee See Munkee Doo’s collection was all about. Being a little minimalistic, the label showed us how basics can be styled to perfection.
Ilk’s subtle hues of blues brought to life floral wallpaper prints on kaftan dresses, beautifully draped sarees, and flowy midi-dresses.
Maxis, long-line jackets, A-line skirts, and satin shirts all in bright candy colours, paired with sorbet hues, Guapa brought on the trend of ruffled-packed ensembles and a lot of layering.
Bringing androgyny back to the stage were NEXA’s set of designers, who also carried menswear in their collections. Keeping the theme gender neutral through monochromatic tones, designers such as Dhruv Vaish, Nought One by Abhishek and Pavan Sachdeva brought on elements of boxy silhouettes, along with a touch of layers.
