Indian designer Samant Chauhan stood out from the crowd at Amazon India Fashion Week with his stunning show and collection titled Rajputana Kumari.
Samant Chauhan is a Delhi based Indian designer who specialises in traditional hand woven Indian textiles, and is a strong believer in the versatility of traditional Bhagalpur weaving techniques and skilful craftsmanship. Samant gives credit to the Bhagalpur craftsmen for his distinctive and ever evolving innovative fabrics.
The show began with a fabulous runway set, that was decorated skilfully to look like a flourishing garden. Indian designer Samant celebrated a fun and feminine energy throughout his show and started off with a unique twist, with an adorable young girl walking down the runway confidently and representing sixteen different forms of kumara, including: Sandhya, Tridhamurti, Kailka, Mahalakshmi and others.
The collection consisted of rich fabrics such as silk, heavy satin and zari, in the form of draped gowns, pleated jackets, loose fitted trousers, elegant asymmetric skirts and embellished saris, also showcasing a number of flowing silhouettes and sophisticated high collars.
The collection theme was based around the tradition of worshipping feminine energy whilst representing purity, and was a simply mesmerising show. The audience, who were lucky enough to watch the show in person, couldn’t keep their eyes off the spectacular dresses as well as the stunning and elegant models wearing them.
The garments themselves showcased both luxury and expert crafting that is fit for a Queen. Samant used an opulent colour range of deep reds and creams alongside tarnished metal tones, as well as shimmering marble whites.
The amazing backdrop teamed with the impressive collection caught everyone’s attention from the minute it began, as it showcased a new aesthetic from the designer that we haven’t seen before. We saw an influx of long dresses, tailored coats and intricate embellishment in deep gold, injected in different forms across the garments.
Moreover this remarkable Rajputana Kumari collection by Indian designer Samant Chauhan also featured a variety of elaborate accessories in opulent pearls and golds, adding an elegant essence and enhancing the perfection of the collection.
The collection and the show together left the audience speechless, and was definitely one of the most interesting and impressive collections to be showcased at Amazon India Fashion Week!
