  • AIFW AW18 9 Trending Prints From Amazon India Fashion Week A/W 2019

    Fashion weeks are the greatest inspiration when it comes to revealing the designer streak we have inside of us. To go to our Masterji and tell him to make something that we spotted online is our favorite hobby. We pick what suits our style and give our wardrobe a fresh new look every new season.

    Last week, the Amazon Fashion Week Autumn/Winter show surely had some promising new ideas for us to experiment with. We’ve made a list of the most amazing prints we spotted in womenswear, here have a look!

    1. Geometric Hypnotize at Kanika Goyal Label

    AIFW AW18

    Taking inspiration from the French art movement, Kanika Goyal’s collection is inspired by
    Tachisme – a form of art that is analogous to the American Abstract Expressionism. It explores striking color block techniques, brush strokes and geometric patterns in asymmetrical layered silhouettes.

    2. Island Beauty at Shivan & Narresh

    AIFW AW18

    The exotic marriage of Japanese Edo Art with the beauty of Seychelles was revealed in Shivan & Narresh’s Edo Mer Series.

    3. Tribal Switch at Aartivijay Gupta

    AIFW AW18
