Futuristic fashion, Bohemian chic and romantic silhouettes are going to be the trendsetters for the Autumn/Winter season, as cemented by Day Three of the ongoing Amazon India Fashion Week at Pragati Maidan.
Designer Namrata Joshipura showcased a futuristic collection as an ode to strong and beautiful women. Designer Anupama Dayal's autumnal offering had a more relaxed and boho vibe, taking inspiration from a Lodhi era monument, Jamali Kamali, and the Mughal empress, Nur Jehan.
Colour palette of sandstone, and the shades it weathers into, went well with the theme. The designer duo Shani Himanshu and Mia Morikawa had friends such as writer Jeet Thayil, designer Rakesh Thakore and French designer Helena Grzegorzewska walk the ramp for them. Here's a style wrap-up of the fashionable affair that was Day Three.
Dinner jacket: Drape a silk dinner jacket over your dress or skirt to give an androgynous vibe.
An out and out autumnal collection, the designer presented ikat work in shift dresses, pencil skirts and embroidered jerseys. The quirky wigs added drama to the collection.
