The curtain came down on the five-day long Amazon India Fashion Week with a spectacular show put together by 16 of India's most celebrated designers with an ode to popular indigenous Benarasi weave.

Curated on the theme of 'Born in Benaras', the designers presented their interpretations in Benarasi weave; showcasing the weave's journey from being used only in traditional wear to now finding a place in contemporary fashion.

The designers – Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna, Namrata Joshipura, Ashish N Soni, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Abhishek Gupta, Gauri and Nainika, Alpana and Neeraj, Abraham and Thakore, Anupamaa Dayal, Malini Ramani, Atsu, Arjun Saluja, Manish Arora, JJ Vallaya, Sabyasachi and Tarun Tahilian, created mesmerising designs in Banarasi weave using a wide palette of colors like black, gold, red and blue to present the weave in creative and modern interpretations.

The Grand Finale showcased a fresh take on Benarasi weave across Western and Indian looks. Designers played with the Benarasi brocade on long jackets, A-line skirts, Boho chic resort wear, sarees as well as lehengas, giving the handcrafted weave a more western and edgier touch. The rich assortment of creativity and ideas in colourful threads started with a western collection in more of black and golden tones, followed by western collection with fusion of colors which was then concluded with the rich Indian garbs in turquoise, red and gold colors using the season's fresh bridal hues.

“Our talented designers have successfully reflected the old world charm of Benaras on the contemporary canvas. We look forward to having such collaborations in future and evolving the fashion dynamics of India”, said Sunil Sethi, President, Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI). (SH)
