Day 01 | #AIFWAW17 | Handloom

Day 01 of the Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter ’17 started with a bang at a different venue this time – The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. And I return this season to curate and share my looks for all 4 days for you with Amazon Fashion as my ‘Official Fashion Partner’ where you will witness me style and pick out outfits from the Amazon Fashion website, wear them everyday to fashion week and you get access to the direct product links to shop immediately the next day! So watch out for all the 4 looks, decide which one is your favorite and go get it for yourself!

The #AIFWAW17 has focussed on ‘Handloom’ this season where the opening show was done by The Handloom School supported by Goodearth that brought together 13 designers who created ensembles from fabric woven by the talented students of The Handloom School that showcased not only the unique style of each designer/label but also kept intact the magnificence and delicate elegance of Indian handloom.

Keeping in tune with this beautiful initiative, I picked out my first look from the Handicraft & Handloom Store by the name of ‘Crafted in India’ on Amazon Fashion that includes over 16,000 products across Apparel, Shoes, Handbags, Jewelry and Home. The store has been curated by Amazon Fashion and brings India’s weavers and artisans from across the country one step closer to the customers by offering authentic handicrafts with fast and reliable delivery. The wide selection includes Benarasi from Uttar Pradesh, Chikankari from Lucknow, Kalamkari from Andhra Pradesh, Maheshwari from Madhya Pradesh, Handblock Print from Rajasthan, Bandhani from Gujarat along with eclectic crafts like Patola, Madhubani, Kantha, Chanderi in clothing, Terracotta & Meenakari in jewellery, Kutchi bags, Dhurries & Dhokra in home & kitchen categories sourced directly from large organized brands like Jaypore, Indusdiva, Fabindia, Unnati Silks and brands like Craftisan, Kilol, Caravan and more.

I put together this beautiful outfit from the Handloom Store and I think it’s going to be my favorite look from all 4 days. Instant love for this ‘Dabu’ printed dress by Jaypore. It is a blend of silk & cotton and made from hand block printed textile. Dabu is a ‘mud resist’ block printing technique in which a thick viscous paste made of clay, lime, tree gum and insect eaten wheat is used in a printing process to resist the desired pattern from dyeing colors. native to rajasthan, dabu printing is now practiced in just a few clusters like the village of akola. A light breezy dress with summery layers paired with a silk wool handloom stole (also by Jaypore) in a brilliant green (this color is already sold out but you can find different colors as well). Hope you enjoy the look. As always, all product links are provided at the end of the post.
