From majestic couture items with a revival of recent centuries, innovation in textiles and experiments with new-age methods, the distinguishing presence of couturiers in India has always appeared. As India Couture Week 2019 organized by India’s Fashion Design Council continues below is highlights of top couture presentation by renowned designers in India and world at large. It is worth noticing that high couture fashion that brings different blends of fashion together, India has great craftsmanship and fine details to offer to couture fashion, something the world needs to put a perspective on. Our fashion cops followed Swati Sharma renowned architecture designer and fashion blog owner of Arch Attire.
Amit Aggarwal the couturier designed bridal couture named Lumen for the first time. The collection was influenced by the designer’s virtual reality at London’s Saatchi Gallery, which focused on how plant and human anatomy architecture are linked by breath. “This showcase celebrates the distinctive light which enlightens us and makes us who we are”, Aggarwal commented.
Designer Suneet Varma celebrated the light within in day two. This proved that fashion is attached to emotion, everyone has light within which makes us unique. The couture reminded me of Dananjaya Hettiarachchi world champion in public speaking with his famous quote, “I see something in you!!” Inspired by these energies, the designer curated his most recent collection entitled “Amara”. That included lehengas, sarees and modern wear with bead job, Swarovski crystals, mirror work and complex hand embroidery. He used Indian silhouettes, traditional motifs and applied them to a broad variety of fabrics such as satin, silk, net and georgette.
Drawing inspiration from his latest visit to Monaco and childhood memories of Uttar Pradesh village designer Rahul, on the third day of the Indian Couture Week, Ace designer Rahul Mishra delighted everyone with his annual couture set. The set was designed to look like Monaco’s streets, surrounded by European façades and colorful leaflets which continued into the clothing the models were wearing. He used Indian silhouettes with a thick play of floral motifs woven with complex multi-colored hand-sticks, three-dimensional hand-sticks and appliques.
Taking the pace that have been set high by couturier Varma, Rahul and Aggarwal on the fourth day, Sulakshana Monga used her bridal collection to narrate a story of traditional bridal men’s wear. The men’s wear collection had a more subtle attitude to their distinctive storytelling style on their couture. The focus was on traditional, earthy and neutral hues, such as ivory and beige, for the most part. This is in line with their philosophy of powerful, traditional and modest designs.
Couturier Gaurav Gupta sculpted to thrill. His fashion achieved equilibrium between structure and fluidity. His couture was inspired by waves without end. Wearable art was personified by his outfits. It had many abstract lines, fluid and unique silhouettes and drapes like waves.
Swati Sharma’s best personal style from Indian Couture Week
Without high fashion street wear that gives mix of distinct looks and wears, fashion weeks are not complete. With this in mind, fashion police at Arch Attire followed the fashion passion of Arch Attire’s founder, Swati Sharma. She has been actively involved with Indian Couture Week for the previous three years and has recognized her finest looks. There’s plenty to get excited about from boots to blazers, new trends in outerwear, and beyond. Inspire yourself with these Swati’s looks from the Indian Couture album.
Drawing her inspiration from Paris Couture which she was in attendance, Swati wore all black look from boots that marched well. The wear is ideal for summer causal wear. The ready to wear dress that is ideal to wear in summer alongside the boots were some of idea drawn from Couture Dior collection.
She transited her favourite summer print clothes of short-sleeve by combining them with boots of mid-calf. Definitely she ditch out the necklace but instead combined it with golden belt that matched the print. Print makes every piece looks sexy. It is one the most famous wear that one can add to her closet. Consider this one worn by Swati with shades of pink.
Sophistication lies in the details. I like this look, the top match the high-waist trouser, the twin coat and the ideal heels of everyday life. For every flash crop-top moment that makes fashion fickle.
Her black pants were not left behind in Indian Couture Week. Styling the pants with shade of orange-pink top and white trench coat. To give it a better look of professionalism she added on stripped boats. That made a statement in the Indian Couture Week.
This goes without saying dark blue jeans that fall well over the leopard print heels. That was matched well with unexpected color of yellow crop top and green purse with shades of black and gold. Well I didn’t forget a flowing dress for an unexpected styling combo over a couple of dark blue jeans.
