NEW DELHI, INDIA (OCTOBER 10, 2015) (ORIGINALLY 4:3) (ANI) – The fourth day of Amazon India Fashion Week saw edgy and feminine outfits as popular Indian designers Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna, Gauri and Nainika Karan and Aneeth Arora presented their collection before a host of celebrities and fashion-lovers in New Delhi.
The collection under designer label ‘Rohit+Rahul’ was inspired by the modern-day woman. The colour palette included vivid tones of mint, white, coral, sky hues, frost and black.
“The cellulites were easy. Actually we didn’t focus on any trends. We made our own trends. All the girls want to wear their own things. There were day dresses, there were shirt dresses, there were evening gowns, every girl is different, so that’s what we were trying to show. They were all trying to make it happen. They are multi tasking, they are working, they are doing interviews right now and they are going out partying. So, a girl is doing multi tasking. So, it’s for everyone,” said Khanna.
Bollywood star, Athiya Shetty, was the showstopper for the designer-duo.
While Khanna and Gandhi portrayed the modern woman, designers Gauri and Nainika dressed their models in more feminine outfits. Their collection comprised mainly of outfits with ruffles in soft hues and pearls attached to them.
“We always wanted to use pearls in our collection and finally we actually got a chance and so it would fit really well with the organza where it would give a very classy, delicate look and very feminine,” said Nainika Karan.
With no prints, the soft and breezy collection was based on romantic theme dating back to the1950s era.
Meanwhile, Arora’s collection titled’ Pero’ saw a wide range of striped lowers, khadi (handmade Indian fabric), hand crochet dresses, jersey tanks, maxi gowns, dungaree style gowns, crop tops and pants. The colour pallete mostly consisted of white and other light shades.
The five-day fashion extravaganza will showcase a total of 56 designers and conclude on October 11. On the concluding day, 16 designers will showcase three ensembles each, inspired by the theme, “The Benaras Project – Crafts of India”.
