With just one day down, Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2016 has already set the ball rolling. Day one saw designers like Varun Bahl, who opened the show, Gaurav Jai Gupta, Hemant & Nandita, Kiran Uttam Ghosh and Gaurav Gupta to name a few. From shimmering jacquard fabrics to dimensional layering and a whole lot of ruffles and fringe, we saw a little bit of everything. Here are some of our favourites…

Varun Bahl

With giant bugs taking centre stage on Varun’s runway, it was the appliqué work on the garments we couldn’t take our eyes off.
