Lakme Fashion Week’s 2014 Winter Festive season opened today with two very different shows by Amit Aggarwal and Masaba Gupta.
Their design aesthetic couldn’t be farther apart, which made for interesting contrasts between Amit Aggarwal and Masaba Gupta’s runway collections.
Amit Aggarwal extended his signature architectural gowns by playing with volume, texture, and some alien inspired styling. Masaba Gupta’s collection was disappointing, and perhaps a sign that working as Creative Director at Satya Paul and at her namesake label is impacting the quality of her work. The 60s inspired collection featured a few interesting sari gowns, but most of the pieces are unwearable – or at least, undesirable.
