“Monaco from the Heart of Kashi” by Amit Aggarwal created a cultural connect at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017

Monaco Tourism brought the incredible collection by fantasy designer Amit Aggarwal at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017. The ensembles were a masterly showcase of craftsmanship, style, detailing and embellishments that Amit is renowned for.

Amit Aggarwal said, “I am delighted to partner with Monaco Tourism for our Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017 showcase. The collection that started its roots in Monaco was interpreted by use of discarded vintage Banarasi saris that have a history but have lost their purpose; in a hope to find them a new life and a new home.”

Speaking on the occasion, Rajeev Nangia, India Director, Monaco Government Tourist Bureau said, “Monaco is the epitome of luxury and glamour, and undoubtedly one of the finest tourist destinations’ in the world to enjoy the high life. We loved the collection, “Monaco from the Heart of Kashi” exclusively showcased by Amit Aggarwal at Lakme Fashion Week. The style and opulence that his collection featured is truly synonymous with, the fashion extravagance that destination Monaco is bestowed with. His collection was truly in line with the mood of magnificent celebrations and weddings, one can picturise at destination Monaco. Luxury comes with a lot of responsibility and sustaining our environment, heritage, art & culture is of prime importance. Practicing sustainability in Monaco is also of prime importance and we appreciate Amit’s effort to maintain the years old heritage of, “Banarsi Saris and hand work” in this collection”.

Jaspreet Chandok, Head-Fashion, IMG Reliance Ltd said, “We are proud to partner with Monaco Tourism for a third time in a row as we celebrate yet another exciting facet of the destination. The show was a perfect marriage of Amit Aggarwal’s sustainable bridal couture with a fantastic wedding destination.”

Inspired by the gorgeous destination of Monaco on the French Riviera where the rich and famous rub shoulders, Amit’s bridal couture collection called ‘Monaco from the Heart of Kashi’ was a lush story of glamour and style. Drawing his designing thoughts from the art, culture, and architecture of palaces and Opera De Monte Carlo, the motifs, carvings and drapery was cleverly matched with the brocades of Benares.

Taking his designing board further into sustainable couture, Amit worked with the traditional Banaras brocades and saris from around the country. He then brought in his expert techniques of industrial pleating; latticing and inserting recycled polymer strips. Not stopping at his signature detailing, Amit further added zardosi embroidery in dual metal and yarns, included hand pleated tape embellishments along with thread work that was blended with unconventional industrial yarns.

The result was an extraordinary line of gorgeous creations that made show stopping entries on the catwalk. Keeping the colour card rich there was amber, sapphire, ruby, jade and black diamond that glistened with the blinding radiance of gold and silver.

It was a collection that created a brilliant mélange comprising the beauty of Monaco with the blend of traditional Banarsi saris, which presented a new chapter in the fashion trends for the coming season; an unconventional collection, that is very novel for a brides’ big day.

When it comes to extreme bridal couture fashion, which can turn the wearer into a showstopper, then Amit Aggarwal’s ‘Monaco from the Heart of Kashi’ collection presented by Monaco Tourism created the perfect timeless appeal globally.
