Tonight marks the opening of Lakmé Fashion Week and designers Amit Aggarwal and Masaba are all geared up to open the show. A week before the madness begins, designers round up their collection, bring together the models, the stylist and everyone else involved in putting the whole show together and carry out a full fledged run through. From getting all the fittings correct, to making sure all the accessories are perfectly matched and of course deciding who will be wearing what – all of it happens within a few hours and this time, we got to take a peek at Amit Aggarwal’s fittings a few days before his opening show. Here’s what we saw…

Aggarwal’s latest collection is a very structured one. Strong silhouettes frame majority of the designs. This structure, mixed with deep shades like black, emerald and deep blue gives the entire collection a dark, romantic air.

His designs make use of washed matt silks, crepe de chine and duchess satin which are spun together to give birth to all the wearable whimsical magic.

A few androgynous elements make an appearance in a very subtle way while the entire collection takes inspiration from tribal weaving techniques, striped tattoos and structured jewellery.
