Amit Aggarwal brings fusion of textile, technology at AIFW

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Making the best use of industrial waste with Indian prints, designer Amit Aggarwal presented his summer-spring collection at the Amazon Fashion Week.

Titled 'icloud', his collection presented a wide use of recycled plastic and involved lot of handwoven textiles -- the two things Amit's label swears by.

Drawing inspiration from his cherised moments, the collection also had a fresh take on nostalgia.

"I pulled out all the memories of my growing-up years, which I thought that was probably the easiest time of my life. So, I used little detailing of teddy bear eye.

"This line is a fusion of what has to offer to the West -- that is its textiles, and what the industrialisation has brought in -- technology," Amit told reporters post the show.

The designer kept the garments very simple with use of sequin waste and textiles like chanderi, kota doria and floral block prints.

The collection comprised dresses, free-size pants, skirts, big sleeves and dropped shoulder tops and jackets.

The range offered colour palette of pastels hues like salmon, lemon, soft blue and white and also saw a heavy use of high wedges.

"For the shoes we have taken inspiration from the 1980s and 1990s. So, we went all 'Spice Girls'. So, we did these huge wedges so that the girls feel much above everyone," Amit said.

Presenting extremely washable, wearable and comfortable clothes, Amit set the mood of the crowd with his clothing line.
