Day One at Lakmé Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 2019 ended with an exciting high-tech fashion presentation of couturier Amit Aggarwal’s 'Flux' collection, made from R|Elan FreeFlow fabric by Reliance Industries Limited (RIL). FreeFlow is part of the unique range offered by R|Elan Fabric 2.0, which defines the next generation of textiles.

Drawing upon its extensive R&D and vast expertise in fibre technologies, RIL has created the FreeFlow range of sustainable, performance enhancement Fabric 2.0 – a portfolio of specially engineered fabric innovations that offer a plethora of benefits ranging from sustainability, high performance to aesthetics. With high fashion brands choosing R|Elan for designing eco-fashion, activewear, denim, ethnic and western-wear, casuals and work wear, the brand is on its way to becoming a top fashion favourite, said RIL in a press release.

The 'Flux' collection is Amit Aggarwal's perfect luxury men's and women's wear offering. On his association with R|Elan, designer Amit Aggarwal said, R|Elan is making India into a homegrown space for new age and contemporary textiles. "Working with the natural fluidity of the R|Elan FreeFlow fabric, paved the way to create the new, modern and fashionable 'Flux' collection. The fabric not only enhances the aesthetics of the design through its elegant, fluid drapes but also sparks creative explorations for beautiful, feminine silhouettes," said Aggarwal.

"Amit Aggarwal's Flux has unveiled the fusion of supreme craftsmanship, aesthetics with the sustainability and high-performance quotient of R|Elan. We are pleased to see novel high-tech apparels bringing out the unique features of R|Elan FreeFlow fabric," said Hemant D Sharma, head – polyester business, RIL.

Being a forerunner in reusing materials, the brand Amit Aggarwal has strived to find new life in ‘discard’ with each of his collections. As India becomes the first nation to recycle 90 per cent of its PET waste, the brand has joined hands with RIL's R|Elan to be a part of this far-reaching movement. Very noticeable were Amit's distinct signature recycled polymer strips on the ramp along with the geometric compositions in the form of sheer sultry wraps, exaggerated sleeve detailing, strong power shoulders and some feminine billowing skirts.

Bringing in his expert design techniques, Amit had plissé (a near constant for the creations for men and women) dramatic fine draping and 3D embroidery, which added to the extreme construction of the ensembles.

Colours were a rich sachet of bright emerald, petrol, purple and plum, which were impressively balanced with gold, blush, silver and ivory.

Women's wear was opulent with polymer strips for long-sleeved mini, sheer skirt over body suit, pleated long gown and draped neo sari. The ombré blazer over a draped skirt, shimmering peplum blouse, grey midi dress and the red plisséd halter maxi were stunners on the ramp. The draped sari and another shimmering plain/striped sari, as well as the mini with impressive shoulder trails created a futuristic look for women.

Men's wear was as adventurous and matched the polymer strip detailing also seen on battle jackets, plisséd one-sleeve shirt, boxy oversized trench coat and waist coat with shirt. Stopping the show was the very graceful and elegant Lisa Haydon who sashayed down the ramp in a purple draped sari gown with micro plissé pallav and high slit skirt.

Keeping her dashing company on the ramp was ace cricketer Hardik Pandya who strutted down in a matching purple neo style, long-line, jacket teamed with narrow pants and shimmering flap detailing.

R|Elan, the next-gen fabrics have been created from specially engineered fibres and yarns using the cutting-edge technological expertise, state-of-the-art R&D and the robust testing systems. These smart fabrics have been designed to enhance comfort and aesthetics and it is the most sought-after fabric by renowned domestic and global brands, retailers and apparel manufacturers. (PC)
