Amit Aggarwal’s Winter/Festive ‘18 collection is perfect for the fashion-conscious millennial

Fast-paced fashion that’s not fast fashion

Today, the millennial way of living life has become a trend in itself — there’s a digital revolution brewing that demands urgency in every moment. Amit Aggarwal’s Winter/Festive ‘18 show at Lakmé Fashion Week in partnership with NEXA was just that — fast-paced fashion, but not fast fashion. 

Take showstoppers Shahid Kapoor and Disha Patani’s ensembles, for example: both were crafted out of recycled plastic bottles, without compromising on style. Inspired by the sleek and angular lines of NEXA models, Amit’s collection was a successful experimentation of new-age fabrics, patterns and extensive craftsmanship. Another example: The popular Phulkari textile was given a metallic embroidered look, with the help of recycled plastic and metal surfaces. 

While the designer stayed true to his signature look of dramatic 3D silhouettes, we also saw sharp patterns and shapes — sleek bell bottoms, linear jumpsuits, angular blouses — that showcased a futuristic vibe, in tones of black, gold, grey and white.

All in all, Amit presented a collection that is meant for the fashion-conscious millennials of today — those who understand fashion, and also understand its consequences on the environment; those who understand fast fashion, but choose not to partake in it.
