New Delhi: Italian apparels, bags, umbrellas and shoes made a cut above statement here at the Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) Spring- Summer 2017.
While the apparels ranged from red, blue tunics to yellow skirts to crop tops and dresses, the collections showcased here on Wednesday also had dapper menswear and accessories like shoes, umbrellas and bags.
FDCI (Fashion Design Council Of India) collaborated with the Italian Trade Commission to have Italy as partner country for the 28th edition of the gala.
The umbrellas had inverted designs, unlike what we find here in India. Rather than designing the tops, the insides had different designs like flowers and peacock feathers, adding drama to the attire of the models.
Assocalzaturifici (Italian Footwear Manufacturers’ Association) and Aimpes (Italian Leather goods Manufacturers’ Association) showcased collection of leather goods from 41 leading Italian brands.
Francesco Pensabene, Trade Commissioner to India, Embassy of Italy, New Delhi and Sunil Sethi, President of FDCI also inaugurated the Italian Pavillion and Aperitivo.
Designers like Alberto Zambelli, Bav Tailor, Davide Grillo and Leitmotiv, selected by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (National Chamber of Italian Fashion) also had their creations showcased here.
Other designers, who are yet to show their collection include creations by designers like Anavila, Gaurav Jai Gupta, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Ashima Leena, Malini Ramani, Pallavi Mohan, Felix Bandish and J.J. Valaya.
AIFW is being held at the NSIC Grounds, Okhla here, and will conclude on Sunday.
