Amazon India Fashion Week SS 2018 Day 1

Attending FDCI Amazon India Fashion Week as a U.S. blogger is pretty uncommon. It took a lot of planning, a few key connections (thank you FDCI), and an epic level of organization to make the trip work. But for my first time attending, it was totally worth it. Seeing the designers, the runways, and the street style up close solidified my passion for the South Asian fashion scene. Here’s a peek at the week in Delhi highlighting my personal style, the Spring Summer 2018 runway looks, and a few fun activities in between.

Outhouse Jewelry Studio

On my first stop in Delhi, I visited the Outhouse Jewelry studio to meet designers Kaabia and Sasha Grewal. These two sisters showed us their most recent bridal collection featuring crisp whites and soft rose golds. Needless to say, I wanted it all! They provided a behind the scenes tour of artisans at work, vintage pieces from their collection, and a look at jewelry before its plated. It was incredible to see each stage of the design process starting with the initial sketch. In complete awe of what the sisters had built in just five years, I was seriously inspired and ready for fashion week.

After breakfast overlooking the beautiful verandah at Eros Nehru Place, I dove right into Day 2 of fashion week. While checking out the runway shows is always exciting, it’s getting to meet the designers and seeing their work up close that gives me the most pleasure. It was especially delightful to meet the talented and adorable designer Urvashi Joneja, whose pieces are full of bright and whimsical prints, geometric cuts, and thoughtful details.

Funny how when there’s so much to do and see, you’re willing to overlook jet lag and stop from going into full on zombie mode. It may help that I’m wearing yellow — the happiest color in the world — to keep things bright and cheery. After an indulgent multi-course meal at Varq, the Taj Mahal hotel’s high end dining spot for Indian cuisine, there was no time for a food coma. Onwards to more inspired runway fashion, networking, and people watching for a serious case of style envy!
