#AIFWAW17: Alia Bhatt Walks The Ramp, Hues Of Blue Dominate On Day 3
Day 3 of Amazon India Fashion Week 2017 saw a mix of traditional fashion, alongside some contemporary designs, with the standout colour being different hues of indigo blue. One thing that was common to most were the use of embellishments and Indian motifs on the textiles.
One of the main showstoppers of the day was Alia Bhatt, who walked the ramp for Namrata Joshipura in a shimmery, tasseled jumpsuit. Check out the highlights from day 3 of Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2017.
Starting off with the trendiest colour of day 3, designer Anju Modi kept this season’s collection along the same lines in hues of blue. Inspired by the midnight sky, Neelambar had traditional pieces with minute detailing. Celebrating Indian textile heritage, structured skirts with intricate work and organic motifs were what this collection was all about. Showstopping for the designer was actress Sakshi Tanwar who wore a traditional white lehenga with gold embellishments.
Designer Ashima Leena’s collection took inspiration from the architectural realms of Khiva. Charukesha showcased beautifully constructed skirts with gorgeous India motifs, tribal jackets and blouses, and sarees that give a new spin to royalty.
Shivan and Narresh’s eclectic take on this season’s designs was edgy and quirky, with some pieces donning the animated works of Egon Schiele, the famous Australian painter. With metallic embellishments on each garment, the entire collection screamed glamour galore!
One of the best collections of the day, Namrata Joshipura’s gorgeous collection on street style was epic. This celebrity designer used elements of lace, fringes, shimmer, and shine in all her ensembles. The A/W’17 collection is relateable for every 2o-something girl, as it is fresh, and totally trendy.
Nikasha, Sahil Kochar, Siddartha Tyler & Verb
Bringing soft floral embroideries to the runway, Sahil Kochar’s collection Kyari was an inspiration of the Himalayan mountains. Similarly, Nikasha and Verb carried on that flower-power through their respective collections. Siddartha Tyler chose to go the dark way, and showcase dramatic silhouettes, that had appliqué, patchwork, and bold embellishments. The masks were an interesting spin the entire collection.
KaSha brought on playful bright colours to this collection — a refreshing break from the usual winter hues. From flowy dresses and trenchcoats, to trousers, the pieces were ‘happy’ and bold, accompanied by tassels and fun patterns.
Designer Schulen Fernandes for Wendell Rodricks played on geometrics for this collection. There were structured asymmetrical silhouettes that were voluminous yet elegant. The designer experimented with cooler tones, such as blues and teals, while using hints of gold and silver to amp up the ensemble.
