The Amazon India Fashion Week 2018 began snowballing and is scheduled to run from 14th March 2018 to 18th March 2018. The day 1 of the 31st edition of AIFW in association with Nexa Autumn Winter 2018 and organized by Fashion Design Council of India at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Lodhi Road, New Delhi, was a hit show. This show is purely intended to showcase the power of handloom and embrace the digital revolution with both arms.

While we were expecting the fashion show to be every bit colorful, we were pleasantly surprised with the somber opening of the fashion show in Samant Chauhan’s black and grey styles. Be it ruffled patterns or embellished gowns, the outfits were rich in texture and elegant in style. Although the shades were dark and very somber, by adding long embroidered cape jackets, the designer, Samant Chauhan portrayed a unique royal finesse. The collection also included shirt dresses with quirky prints and varied trend chic styles.
Showcasing in cotton silk, silk thread embroidery and deconstructing the idea of rainbow colors and going completely black and white, Samant Chauhan surely got all the attention that his silhouettes deserved.
Anupamaa bu Anupama Dayal
This winter/autumn 2018, Anupama Dayal showcased sweet, adorable styles in white to bright, summery styles in vibrant hues through her label Anupamaa. Quirky patterns, asymmetrical hemlines, and sexy necklines were the eye-catchy features of her designs. The kite-shaped tassels hanging along the outfits or in the form of oversized earrings, made the styles win all the credit. With a few anti-fit silhouettes and with few trendy styles tossed in, Anupama Dayal crafted a creative collection.
Giving the usual skirts, gowns and trousers style a quirky, trendy, uber cool finish with embroidered cape styles was Patine. Besides the jackets, the red colored wide-legged ankle length boots added the much-needed statement look, don’t you agree?
Shyamal & Bhumika
Titled ‘A Parisian Symphony’ that spoke volumes about fashion in Paris, the designer duo, Shyamal & Bhumika did an excellent job. From silk skirts with motifs and statement patterned dresses in soft toned velvets, sequins and beads, the collection of the duo was spectacular.
Diana Penty, the model, and actress walked the ramp for the designers in striking colors and floral prints. In a striking red cowl neck blouse, belt and matka silk skirt, Diana looked ravishing. Love the blend of hues and fabrics! What about you?
Keeping her jewelry and accessories game minimal, and by pinning her tresses back into a ponytail, Diana Penty was glamorous.
Abraham & Thakore
Renowned designers, Abraham and Thakore pulled out the Delhi’s street style at the Amazon India Fashion Week 2018. Messy hairdo, colorful hairpins were received with great panache by the runaway ladies. From the ivory top, skirts, palazzos, trench coats to trainers, the collection was purely trendy and tricky. Although we expected, long, crisp stilettos, we were stumped by rubber shoes that the divas walked with ease.
Ashish N Soni/ Gauri & Nainika
While Ashish N Soni focused purely on menswear collection that comprised of crisp white or black outfits besides showcasing modern day white tie dress code for men. Truly feminine were Gauri & Nainika’s creative collection at the Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2018. With dramatic textures, long skirts and gigantic 3D hand embroidered flowers gracefully crafted pleated tulle in black and white, the collection was breathtaking.
Vaani Kapoor was the muse for both the designer collection. While she drew out a sensual, feminine style in ruffled white Gauri & Nainika gown, she latter walked the ramp in a cream and black pantsuit by Ashish N Soni. From sexy to bossy style, the diva was exceptionally good at switching styles and attitude.
