AMIT AGGARWAL: GLOBAL BRIDAL WEAR
Inspired by the gorgeous island of Monaco on the French Riviera where the rich and famous rub shoulders, Amit Aggarwal’s bridal couture collection called ‘Monaco from the Heart of Kashi’ was a lush story of glamour and style. The inspirations were from the art, culture and architecture of palaces and opera house of Monaco, the motifs, carvings and drapery was cleverly matched with the brocades of Banaras.
Sustainable couture was the core of the garments with the traditional Banaras brocades and sarees from around the country. Expert techniques of industrial pleating; latticing and inserting recycled polymer strips were the highlights of the ensembles; while zardosi embroidery in dual metal and yarns, hand pleated tape embellishments, thread work was blended with unconventional industrial yarns. The colour card had amber, sapphire, ruby, jade, black diamond, gold and silver.
Peplum blouse with flared sleeves was worn with geometrically cut deep green, velvet, skirt. The draped saree gowns, gold moulded blouses and electric blue 3D floral gold long skirt and jacket with brocade skirt were sensational. Silver moulded corsets and draped sarees, panelled gowns, velvet coats over midi skirts, off-shoulder ensembles, scintillating red corsets with an eye-catching drape and a gold gown with geometric strips completed the bridal wear story.
