Replacing front row seats with streaming platforms, FDCI has presented its first-ever digital India Couture Week 2020 from September 18 to October 23, 2020.
Day 2 featured designers Amit Aggarwal and Rahul Mishra doing what they do best- paying ode to the nature beyond making couture.
Based on the theme of nature after the pandemic, Amit’s Couture 2020 presentation depicted the ‘weightlessness of the ocean, the caress of the wind, and the cradle of earth’
The collection was shot underwater with a purpose to enhance the sculpture of the body. Fusing his signature polymers and reimagined industrial elements, Aggarwal presented his couture collection featuring metallic lehengas and 3D blouses.
Sequins, pearls, 3D motifs, structured polymer lace were the prominent elements from his collection.
@rahulmishra_7 showcased his Couture'21 collection at FDCI's first ever digital edition of India Couture Week in association with @HindustanTimes. The collection is inspired with the 3Es - Environment, Employment and Empowerment and aims to look at luxury from the lens of participation and not just consumption. #ICW2020 #DecodingCouture #FDCIGoesDigital
An organic extension to his Paris Haute Couture Collection ‘Butterfly People’, Rahul’s ‘Lotus Pond’ celebrated the love for nature.
Shot in the backdrop of the outskirts of Delhi, this collection was an ode to an evolving ecosystem with butterflies, dragonflies, aquatic plants and a sublime lotus.
Staying true to his signature style, this bridal collection featured flora and fauna that featured 3D butterflies, jaali work, sequin detailing and embellishments.
Weightless, timeless and contemporary – Mishra’s collection fits the bill for all the millennial brides looking for fuss-free trousseau while Aggarwal’s couture features the best of futuristic designs keeping in mind the carbon footprint.
Though both the designers played a safe game sticking to what they know, Amit and Rahul made a conscious effort of paying an ode to nature by elevating their signature style.
