I Am Alive, by Amalraj Sengupta at the Amazon India Fashion Week autumn/Winter 2015 was dedicated to Red Indians. "It is a small way of putting across a message to the world, from a Red Indian... "You see, I am alive."" Amalraj's clothes used their silhouettes, colours and patterns with a modern touch.
25 of India's leading fashion designers - veterans most of them and a few stellar new ones. Stunning pieces and setup and lovely that the designers walked the runway at the end as well. It is unfair that so many of us love and adore their work and don't see enough of the faces behind the collections. Styled by Gautam Kalra. Produced by Preferred Professionals.
Narmata Joshipura's Autumn/Winter collection is called Night Goddess. It is inspired by Nyx, who is the goddess of the night from Greek mythology and identified with mystery, beauty and power. Satin, gowns, faux fur, culottes and super sexy silhouettes. Everything was stunning and hopefully my fitness regimen might allow me to actually get a piece or two!
Pero's Princess Pea collection was plaid and pashmina and florals. They even had a Military Band in the background on stage for live music! I think it was the Madras Regiment band it was quite an experience to hear this music at Fashion Week! I don't know if it's been done before but as the child of an Army Officer, I LOVED it!
Hemant and Nandita showcased a gypsy/boho collection called Boho Caravan. With carpet inspired prints and colorful embroidery, the collection looked like a happy-go-lucky one. The music during the runway presentation definitely added to the thrilling happy vibe! I would love to try one of their beautiful and intricate blanket overcoats for the next Indian winter season!
