A look back into “The Grand Finale” of Amazon India Fashion Week 2015

By on April 25, 2015

Given the magnetic appeal of Amazon, it was no surprise that 25 of the most celebrated designers in the country, came together in Delhi’s Pragati Maidan for conclusion of the immensely successful Grand Finale of the Amazon India Fashion Week AW 2015.

The set was designed like a Rajasthani fort with neatly scattered puppet sketches and was filled with hues of red, fabulous patterns, prints and threads. The silhouette of the fort’s dome was adorned with mirrors and miniature dolls wrapped in white dresses in small wall cabinets fixed on the stage that gave an impression of medieval era opulence and prosperity enjoyed by the kings.

 The closing theme: ‘Crafts of India’

The theme on the concluding day of the show was ‘Crafts of India’ and designers pulled out no stops to showcase their interpretation of India’s craft heritage to an audience that was mesmerized with music, dance, drama and style.

Designers were given a pre-defined set of colors to work with so as to present a unified appeal and these included subtle hues of crimson, reds and fiery orange. Within the prescribed format, designers still painted diverse stories starting with a western collection, followed by ethnic beauty, themed on the colours of daylight and fading with deep colours of the sunset.

Apparel Design at its best!

In line with the theme, muses walked on the ramp to the tune of “dhol” beats with turbans in vibrant hues and outfits with mirror work adding a shimmery effect. Some designers experimented with floral appliqué work in their dresses while still others experimented with zardosi work on a golden beige base.

One could see design talent in abundance with designers experimenting with Indian, western, fusion wear in order to target the mass-market “prêt” segment. Suits, lehengas, traditional dresses, jumpsuits, gowns, saris, sherwanis and skirts dominated day 5 apart from the positivity, energy and camaraderie which one could feel just by being there at the show.
