Mumbai,  Aug 24 (IBNS): Day Three at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2018 ended with the ultra-glam collection from Amit Aggarwal presented by NEXA.

Inspired by the fashionably, angular, sleek, lines of the NEXA models, Amit’s ensembles were a study in extreme creativity, along with minute detailing and show stopping appeal.

After the event R. S. Kalsi Sr. Executive Director, Marketing & Sales Maruti Suzuki commented, “It’s a special moment for us as we commemorate NEXA’s association with Lakme Fashion Week for the third consecutive season. With the launch of NEXA’s new vision, Create. Inspire, we strive to go further in innovating and creating inspiring products and experiences. We at NEXA share a common drive with Lakme Fashion Week, to always stay ahead of the game, to keep experimenting and to keep creating new designs and trends that inspire. It is the same vision that went into creating the new Ciaz. The car which was launched recently makes a statement of its own with its sharp looks and new engine.”

Keeping the values and the sleek lines of the NEXA models in mind, Amit Aggarwal’s experiments with New Age materials, patterns, fabric manipulation and extensive craftsmanship were breath taking on the ramp. For Amit, it was the iconic NEXA shapes that drove his design direction to create a collection that had both aesthetics as well as style.

The show opened with the throbbing rays of the laser and strobe lights, which formed the backdrop of the show and gave it an almost surreal outer space atmosphere. The pulsating beat of the live band added to the momentum of the fast paced show as the models strutted in quick succession.

Known for creating his unconventional textiles, Amit worked with modern industrial materials that included his favourite polymer strips and metallic laces that matched the NEXA characteristics. Amit’s ensembles were a visual innovative story where the patterns for the textiles gradually moved to angular lines and then onto more opaque constructions and finally culminated in soft waves and abstract linear forms.

Traditional Indian crafts played an important role but were presented in the Amit Aggarwal mode. So the stunning Phulkari appeared in a metallic embroidered technique with the help of recycled plastic and metal surfaces. Amit’s dramatic silhouettes have always been his fortè and this season too the exclusive textiles were moulded into sharp patterns and shapes that had a marked futuristic vibe.

While women’s wear featured bell-bottom pants and moulded silhouettes - though some were exotic and swirled around - the men’s wear was fitted with trousers being skinny and slightly shorter.

The colour story matched the classic sophistication of NEXA as well as Amit’s vision. So it was arctic and pearl white, granite silver grey and radiant black that dazzled on the runway for the show stopping creations. The sleek bell bottom pants were topped with an angular, pleated, ribbed, space-age like, blouse, while the one-shoulder, glittering, jumpsuit,  palazzos,  halter tops, will-power sheaths, gowns, peplum tops, lace beaded skirts and jackets stayed true to the construction and the colour card.  Moulded sari gowns with halter cholis, pleated caped coats with Capri pants and tasselled gown brought further excitement to the show.

Launching his men’s wear line with which Amit opened the show, the shimmer and shine for the sherwanis, bundgalas, capes with coats and intricately constructed jackets were elaborately tailored.  The parallel trousers and shirt worn with a floor-skimming, panelled, long-sleeved, coat with intricate bias cut, detailing, cascading down in black, was an arresting entry, while the black cape coat was an imposing offering.

Ending the show was Bollywood’s heartthrob and super star

Shahid Kapoor who gave the black textured bundgala and ankle length pant a dynamic enigmatic touch. Disha Patani the gorgeous Bollywood beauty, looked sensational in a beaded will-power sheath that revealed embellishments of a very exquisite level.

When the fashion conscious millennial want to make a memorable show stopping impact, then Amit Aggarwal’s collection inspired by NEXA will hit all the right notes.

For NEXA, the show provided a great platform to affirm its premium imagery. Adding to the success of the event was the launch of the New Ciaz, which is inspired by great design and technology. With sharp new looks and a new engine, the New Ciaz will have an extra edge in the mid-sized premium sedan segment. All in all, the fashion fiesta along with the car launch has capped off a great week for NEXA.
