    Amit Aggarwal who has long pioneered in engineering modern and innovative couture showcased his ‘Crystalis’ collection which is inspired by two wondrous natural phenomena, the formation of crystals at a molecular level and the enveloping of the metallic chrysalis around a butterfly cocoon.

    The collection showcase saw experimental textiles created using modern industrial materials applied through traditional Zardozi and Ari hand techniques. A range of handcrafted three-dimensional embroideries in various crystalline and bio mimicked forms and motifs which gave fabrics a unique visual and tactile quality were also on display.

    The color palette for Crystalis consisted of metallic shades of rose gold, silver, pewter and light gold along with jewel tones of rose quartz, silver onyx, emerald, amethyst, topaz, and sapphire bringing the designs to life gracefully.

    One of the most compelling visuals in the presentation were the extensive silhouettes morphing different aspects of traditional Indian and western couture shapes with each other and infusing them with structure and form.

    For footwear, the collaboration with Nidhi Bhandari worked supremely well when a range of the Amit Aggarwal textile techniques, were employed to craft the shoes, composing each couture look to the final detail. 

    As part of his Couture 2018 presentation, Amit Aggarwal brought to life a series of collaborations for jewellery, footwear, and textiles with some of the leading designers and artists from across the country.

    Stunning Outhouse jewellery was crafted by founders and jewellery designers Kaabia Grewal and Sasha Grewal at India Couture Week 2018. The showstopper, Shilpa Shetty Kundra stunned the showcase with a culmination of the collection in every way. She wore something that had all the elements from the collection right from colour, silhouette, structure and detail.

    The outfit was a very radiant plum which was holographic in its approach so as to catch the colors of the entire collection. Shilpa carried the modern and eclectic piece which was a drape with a feeling of a flared lehenga, completely contemporary for a new age bride.

    The runway was designed in congruence with the concept and angular structures were enveloped with metallic yarns and recycled polymer sheet merging their identities.

    The sharp edges were softened with the organic characteristics of the yarns and each of these spaces contained multiple tensile yarn pyramids stacked together, forming a crystal-like installation. A special effect was the play with light: as the light passed through the pyramid structures, multiple linear shadows were formed as a visual delight.

    Amit Aggarwal Couture 2018 collection ‘Crystalis’ will subsequently be available at the Amit Aggarwal Flagship store at The Kila Seven Style Mile, Mehrauli, New Delhi and other high-end retail stores nationwide.

    I would’ve preferred a beige clutch instead of the metallic one but there is no denying she worked every bit of that ruffle sari! The actress graced an awards event in Mumbai earlier tonight wearing a saree.

    Cotton is a fabric that we immediately associate with summer. The high energy in the Black Splash print is beautifully offset by the weightlessness and lucidity in crinkled rapier cotton.

    The fabric’s lightness makes it very easy to wear in the summer.  This outfit is perfect for the summer and Shilpa looked great donning her individual style with this ensemble.

    At the Brand Vision Awards, Shilpa was seen wearing a Rajesh Pratap Singh biker jacket inspired maxi. Her white maxi dress with gold ink splattered detail looked great on her.

    I love how she wore the neck a little unzipped and bunched her sleeves up. This little tweaking worked well for her frame and the belt helped define her waist.

    Considering we always see Ms. Shetty do the same hairdo, her trying new hairstyles this year has made for quite a welcome change. The issue here though was the makeup.

    The heavily penciled in eyebrows and dark eye-shadow didn’t quite work with the gold paint splattered maxi and neither did those sandals.
