Mumbai, Aug 18 (IBNS): Monaco Tourism brought the incredible collection by fantasy designer, Amit Aggarwal at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017. The ensembles were a masterly showcase of construction, style, detailing and embellishments that Amit is renowned for.

Amit Aggarwal said, ‘I am delighted to partner with Monaco Tourism for our Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017 showcase. The collection that started its roots in Monaco was interpreted by use of discarded vintage Banarasi saris that have a history but have lost their purpose; in a hope to find them a new life and a new home.”



Speaking on the occasion, Rajeev Nangia, India Director, Monaco Government Tourist Bureau said, “Monaco is the epitome of luxury and glamour, and undoubtedly one of the finest tourist destinations in the world to enjoy the high life. We loved the collection, “Monaco from the Heart of Kashi” exclusively showcased by Amit Aggarwal at Lakmé Fashion Week. The style and opulence that his collection featured is truly synonymous with, the fashion extravagance that destination Monaco is bestowed with. His collection was truly in line with the mood of magnificent celebrations and weddings, one can picturise at destination Monaco. Luxury comes with a lot of responsibility and sustaining our environment, heritage, art and culture is of prime importance. Practicing sustainability in Monaco is also of prime importance and we appreciate Amit’s effort to maintain the years’ old heritage of, “Banarsi Saris and hand work” in this collection.”

Jaspreet Chandok, Head-Fashion, IMG Reliance Ltd said, “We are proud to partner with Monaco Tourism for a third time in a row as we celebrate yet another exciting facet of the destination. The show was a perfect marriage of Amit Aggarwal’s sustainable bridal couture with a fantastic wedding destination.”

The geometric formation of metallic strings criss-crossed the ramp, while the sound of temple bells, drums and chants set the mood for a grand extravaganza that brought together the beauty of Monaco, with the traditional heritage of Kashi in a stylish and fashionable manner.

Inspired by the gorgeous island of Monaco on the French Riviera where the rich and famous rub shoulders, Amit’s bridal couture collection called ‘Monaco from the Heart of Kashi’ was a lush story of glamour and style. Drawing his designing thoughts from the art, culture, and architecture of palaces and Opera De Monte Carlo, the motifs, carvings and drapery was cleverly matched with the brocades of Benares.

Taking his designing board further into sustainable couture, Amit worked with the traditional Banaras brocades and saris from around the country. He then brought in his expert techniques of industrial pleating; latticing and inserting recycled polymer strips. Not stopping at his signature detailing, Amit further added zardosi embroidery in dual metal and yarns, included hand pleated tape embellishments, along with thread work that was blended with unconventional industrial yarns.

The result was an extraordinary line of gorgeous creations that made show stopping entries on the catwalk. Keeping the colour card rich there was amber, sapphire, ruby, jade and black diamond that glistened with the blinding radiance of gold and silver.

It was drama of the ultimate kind with the opening creation – a silver corset and draped sari entry. What followed was a mind-boggling presentation of panelled gowns, moulded corsets, velvet coats over midi skirts, off-shoulder ensemble, scintillating red corset with an eye-catching drape and a gold gown with geometric strips.

The sari gowns were unbelievable in their construction and the combination of gold, silver and jewel tones came together in perfect unison for the Monaco inspired collection that brought a hint of Kashi to the catwalk. With a multitude of detailing that almost seemed endless, Amit’s extreme creativity left the audience totally mesmerised.

It was a collection that created a brilliant mélange comprising the beauty of Monaco with the blend of discarded traditional Banarsi saris, which presented a new chapter in the fashion trends for the coming season.

The absolutely sensational, Esha Gupta, Bollywood’s answer to the world of glamour ended the show with her amazing entry in a gold moulded corset blouse worn with an electric blue lehanga that dazzled with gold appliquéd flowers.

The look created by Lakmé Makeup Expert, Sandhya Shekar was very earthy and kept very raw to match the collection. The makeup was done in a manner to enhance the natural tones of the models and holistically represented nourished, supple skin.

When it comes to extreme bridal couture fashion, which can turn the wearer into a showstopper, then Amit Aggarwal’s ‘Monaco From the Heart of Kashi’ collection presented by Monaco Tourism will create the perfect global timeless appeal.
