Was there a lot to take in on Day 1 at Amazon Fashion Week this year? Well, let’s just say we saw the highest of highs and lowest of lows. From disapproving gazes to a collective crowd cheer, the verdict on the day’s line-up was just as moody as Delhi’s weather.
Here’s our take on the opening day of Amazon Fashion Week:
The highest of highs: Shantanu and Nikhil. Does this designer duo EVER go wrong? We’re ready to start a cult following (anyone what to join in?). With beautiful, cascading drapes, delicate lace skirts and strong shoulder-robing wraps, the neutral to crimson ensembles were strong and feminine all at once. We’re sure Khaleesi would approve!
The OMG moment: Our hearts melted at the sight of Surelee Joseph in Gaurav Gupta’s white gown from his show Melt. Let’s break it down for you- a white bodycon gown elegantly embellished with gold beads, a defining neckline and berry lips. A Beaut!
The “what-is-she/he-wearing” stare: There’s no way you wouldn’t have noticed her (if you were there!). She’s got her denim jacket on and it’s embellished with colourful cuddly hearts. Do we love it? Of course we do! #cuddleworthy
The best use of embellishments: Embroidered birdies and foliage make our hearts skip. Embroidered gold tone beads brought some twinkle to the ramp. Quirky seen at Hemant and Nandita vs. elegant at Gaurav Gupta.
The trend to take note of: Winter is coming (duh!), so gather up all your winter florals and put them everywhere!! On your shirts, trousers, skirts, jackets and dresses. Wintry florals in metallics and prints are going to be HUGE for AW16. Also, berry-hued lipsticks in every shade are a MUST.
The trend to miss out on: Lurex knits. Period.
The meet-the-frows: Apart from spotting trends, we love to do some good ol’ front row celeb spotting. Today’s stop-and-stare goes to *drumroll* Shahnaz Hussain! Well, before all the Kama’s and Kiehl’s, she was India’s favourite herbal beauty queen.
The hack-to-master: So, your mother’s tried to teach you the “art of saree draping” a million times and you failed at it every single time?? Well, here’s your hack straight from Gaurav Jai Gupta.
Now that we’ve shared our highs and lows, tell us yours! Or drop in a line below if you’d like us to tell you more- even if it’s as simple as directions to the washroom (the most asked question at fashion week!).
