The Day 2: Amazon India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017 for me had a mix of good and not so great outfits. While some I could totally identify wearing, or see being worn during summers…others were a complete miss for me. I am sharing some of my favorites here in this post.
Khadi with metallic gold and silver. Who could have thought about such geniusness. I absolutely loved how the designer duo managed to bring style to this otherwise very traditional sober silhouette.
“It was our way of giving a tribute to Khadi. It is our way of saying this is Khadi and lets look at it in a different way. Lets make it glamorous and fun. So we did a lot of metallic and logos in Hindi. It was like a fun collection. “
Her collection was dominated by linen sarees in summer cool tones. They looked so so comfortable to wear, and isn’t that the point in summer dressing? I loved the versatility of her collection, giving the ethnic saree a modern twist. One could see pocketed sarees, and multiple choices of fusion saree wear.

I am loving her collection. The more and more I see it, the more I can’t figure out which one is my favorite. They all are so summer adorable. Like so wearable yet so chic. I especially love the airy maxis in red. Bold color, flowy…what more do you need for summer.

# Mrs Nair’s High Tea by Virtues by Viral, Ashish & Vikrant
Haha, I loved the name. So creative and so was the collection. Fun, playful with loads of bold color…the collection was definitely a summer hit. The collection consisted of layered dresses, capes, Ikat woven frock dresses, pants and off shoulder gathered tops. The entire collection was done by a traditional dyeing process called Aal, which is used in Odisha.
Showstopper Sona Mohapatra said, “I am proud to be here…It would be interesting to share with you also that the garment I am wearing took 16-20 days to dye. It’s an all natural dye. The more you wear these garments, the colour starts getting darker and deeper, which is such a rare thing.”
Talking about the cuts and techniques, Vikrant said, “The cuts are very basic. One can wear at various functions. Techniques used were more of pleating, quilting and a lot of handwork has been done.”
