Flip­ping through the pages of a woman’s mag­a­zine gave Amit Ag­gar­wal the big­gest high as a teenager grow­ing up in Delhi. “I just fol­lowed my dream thereon,” he says. Ag­gar­wal grad­u­ated from NIFT Delhi in 2002 and in 2008 started Mor­phe, a fash­ion brand in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Creative Group. In 2012 he launched his epony­mous label Amit Ag­gar­wal. He showed in Mum­bai for the first time at the re­cently con­cluded Lakme Fash­ion Week. “I was in­spired by ar­moury but I blended trans­parency with fragility. Each gar­ment was hand- sewn with minute de­tail­ing in me­tal and drapes in fine chif­fon and jersey. Velvet, satin ge­or­gette, tulle and lace were the main fab­rics. Jewel colours like emer­ald, bur­gundy, ink and black were high­lighted,” re­calls Ag­gar­wal. BIG BREAK He de­buted at WIFW in 2012 ON THE CARDS WLIFW Spring Sum­mer col­lec­tion in Oc­to­ber, and a couture col­lec­tion for Spring Sum­mer - 14 for the Euro­pean mar­ket, to be show­cased in Paris dur­ing the fash­ion week in Fe­bru­ary 2014.
