Designer Amit Aggarwal stretched the bindi in unexpected ways at his FW 2015 show
Amit Aggarwal stretched the bindi in unimaginable ways last night at AIFW, at the debut of his ready to wear label AM:IT. He used the remains of the laser cut bindi sheets in his clothes, and added texture in unexpected ways. (In fact, upcycling was a running theme at Abraham & Thakore too.)
Aggarwal knows his way around sculptural outfits. This time, we saw dresses that were almost mirror images of themselves. The paint splatters, kaleidoscopic prints, colour-soaked puff sleeves and structured mesh all heightened the drama.
If the oversized jackets and asymmetrical layers embellished with metallic panels gave the collection a futuristic dimension, then the ikat weaves (that formed the base) gave it a traditional spin.
