Day 1 Highlights:
Here are all the highlights from Day 1 of FDCI ICW 2019:
Amit Aggarwal’s couture collection at FDCI India Couture Week 2019 was a vision treat and his strongest yet. Opening with a sequence of handmade, three-dimensional re-imagined embroideries in several shapes transitioned into an updated form of bio-mimicked motifs and designs. There was also plenty of rich-textures and a stunning mix of visual treats.
Another breathtaking moment was when Kiara Advani took center stage as the showstopper for the designer’s couture collection in an exquisite red textile ensemble matched with jewellery by Narayan Jewels.
Day 2 Highlights:
Here are all the highlights from Day 2 of FDCI ICW 2019:
Suneet Varma has long mastered the technique of swoon-worthy ensembles, but the FDCI India Couture Week 2019 proved his design chops has no boundaries. Amongst a series of whimsical icy hued ensembles, Varma managed to conceive the idea of a dreamy wedding look. Other standouts included the pastel hued dresses which marked the distinctive shift from customary red and pink bridal wear. At the event, the designer had this to say, “We have abandoned any kind of heaviness and embraced lightness, without making the bride feel bogged down or look like a showpiece at her own wedding. She must be able to enjoy a glass of champagne and dance on her D-Day.”
