AIFW A/W 2017 celebrates new faces, latest fashion

  •    AIFW A/W 2017 celebrates new faces, latest fashion

 The Autumn/ Winter 2017 edition of Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) not only celebrated a day dedicated to young students and their creative side, but also the 'guru-shishya' tradition in the form of a finale show. The emphasis this time was on minimalism in fashion.

Some of the country's top notch designers showcased their line on the first four days of the fashion gala, with the fifth day dedicated to the GenNext in fashion at 'Pearl Portfolio'.

Pearl Academy showcased the work of over 350 budding designers from its school of fashion, styling and textiles.

"I am highly impressed with the collections that have been put together by the students and I think they are ready to join the industry already," said Sunil Sethi, President of Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), the country's apex fashion body.

Overall, AIFW, which happened at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here, showcased some of the best of fashion trends exuding minimalism and endorsing the rich handloom culture that India is known for.

In the opening show on March 15, FDCI and The Handloom School acknowledged the anonymous makers who create magic with thread. It featured ensembles from 13 designers and labels like Akaaro, Antar-Agni, Eka, Good Earth, Neeru Kumar, Nicobar, Pero, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Raw Mango, Rohit Bal and Suket Dhir.

Day one witnessed 71 designers showcasing their works. One standout feature was ace designer Madhu Jain showcasing at an Indian fashion week for the first time in her 30-year-old career. Ranging from different pleated blouses to saris in Ikat weaves with a touch of gota patti work, the collection personified the power of the country's handloom.

Ace designers David Abraham and Rakesh Thakore explored the everyday workday looks through their collection titled 'Back to Work', which also showed how one can look stylish with the minimal. And the same held true for Aneeth Arora's designs.

The four-day fashion extravaganza ended on a spectacular note when 'guru-shishya' duo Tarun Tahiliani and Amit Aggarwal showcased more than 80 garments together on the ramp and left fashionistas asking for more.

The fashion week also saw some of the retail brands like Satya Paul, Casa Pop and H&M showcasing their new lines.

And not to miss was the presence of Bollywood celebrities like Alia Bhatt, Vaani Kapoor, Richa Chadha and Dia Mirza, who added the glamour to the gala.
