Creativity knows no boundaries and this was showcased on the third day of India Couture Week when Amit Aggarwal presented his collection featuring experimental textiles and three-dimensional embroideries woven in an environmentally sustainable manner. Designer Suneet Varma’s collection embraced the elements of glamour and sensuality. For Varma, fashion is the politest way of talking about gender but in a subtle manner.

Talking about his collection, ‘Naintara’, Varma shared, “The collection is a modern and theatrical representation of today’s modern Indian women who have embraced the romance of traditional Indian couture — the sixth sense of seduction.”

 

He added, “It has its own vocabulary and language, like an elaborate braid entwined with history, myth and tradition. It may be modern, whimsical or demure but always magnificent and carefully crafted. The mix of traditional motifs with abstract artworks enhanced by the age old crafts of India make for a perfect feminine, romantic and modern woman.”

Aggarwal's collection came to life with the beautiful models sashaying down the ramp in metallic shades of rose gold, silver, pewter and light gold. What caught everybody’s eye was the experimental textiles, created using modern industrial materials applied through traditional zardozi and zari hand techniques.
