Amazon India Fashion Week AW’15: Opening Montage!

By on April 15, 2015

India fashion Week, an initiative by Fashion design Council of India got a new sponsor this year: Amazon.com. Given the monster brand it is, in the online retail space, it was quite natural that the show created such a demand pull that almost every notable designer of the industry made his presence felt at the first such sponsored event , organized in Delhi’s sprawling Pragati Maidan.

  • Renowned designer , Rajesh Pratap Singh, was the first one to showcase his collection of Structured jackets, dresses, pleated skirts with black and white ginghams coupled with graphical prints, perfectly showcasing his stated theme of life in the realm of hospitals with the thought that life begins and ends there. Loved the way a dash of red here and there broke the monotony of black and white!

  • This was followed by the collection of Payal Singhal and Nikasha that was more of a traditional theme with lace embroidered and tiered lehengas, silk pallazos, crop cholis and churidar shirts.

  • Next in line was Anju Modi’s fairy tale-themed collection that saw a wide range of tastefully crafted lehengas and structured drapery. Models did their bit to add a dash of glamour to the collection by sashaying down the ramp in winged tiaras and gorgeous brown tousled hair which looked very appealing.
