This was a much awaited fashion week in India since the venue was a completely new one after YEARS!! FDCI had shifted it from Pragati Maidan to the NSIC Exhibition Grounds in Okhla and everyone wanted to see what the setup looked like and how well it had been organized. Well Day 01 at the Amazon India Fashion Week delivered. And it delivered well. I do love the new venue. Even though the key elements remain the same, it is probably the fresh change that makes it more appealing I suppose. The weather in Delhi is not as cool as I would have wanted it to be for this time of the year so the walk from the stall area to the ramps is in open-air and hot during the day. I had gotten quite used to everything being indoors and air-conditioned at the Pragati Maidan weeks. Didn’t realize I had been spoiled that way!
So for the first day I wore a total Burberry look and yes I was carrying a trench with me too. Though I wore it only towards sunset time and during the shows because it can get pretty cold inside. If you like to see live action then you must add me on Snapchat ( ID: akanksharedhu ) to get a peek into the weird stuff I end up doing and also just a feel of everything around during fashion week. Hope you guys like my outfit! The dress is such a sober print but a playful silhouette – I love how it has been balanced both ways. And that red ‘Orchard Bag’ is perfection!
