Photo essay-Backstage-Dolly J

 

Ruffled sleeves, chic dresses & pastel colors, yes I am talking about Dolly J’s latest autumn/winter collection at Amazon India Fashion Week. The designer is known for feminine silhouettes with using pretty pastels as her color palette. This time what was surprising was the hint of androgyny in few of the pieces. Love the clean shapes with beautiful butterflies motifs on the hemlines of long dresses. In between the soft pinks & subtle red , black came as a refreshing yet bold surprise in Dolly J’s collection.

Samant Chauhan-AIFW A/W 2016

Samant Chauhan‘s latest collection at Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2016 turned out to be a grand show full of extravagant evening gowns with magnificient details such as zardozi, dori embroidery & silk thread. I was also amazed to see hint of colors this time, as that’s not his signature style. Accessories looked chic & I can see them replacing the typical clutches for evening wear. The collection ‘The Silk Route’ was inspired by the designer’s journey to the routes of Nepal, Tibet and China. The look of the show grabbed the eyeballs & the braided hairdo especially on models Sonalika Sahay, Sucheta Sharma &  Ugochi looked very exotic & high fashion. Fabrics included cotton & Bhagalpuri silk.

I enjoyed watching the show through the lens of my camera & was able to capture the spectacular show. So here is a small photo series on his latest collection.
