Amit Aggarwal has long endeavored to bring in a new age of Indian bridal couture and establishing a distinct identity by engineering in innovative designs inspired by nature’s awe-inspiring forms; while effortlessly combining our country’s rich textile heritage and our commitment to environmental sustainability.
At a recent virtual reality experience titled ‘We Live in An Ocean of Air’ where the invisible connection between plant and human is revealed through breath. Amit Aggarwal experienced how the air we breathe travelled and uniquely illuminated every framework of the body. Bringing to light the wonderful architecture of the human and plant anatomy. ‘LUMEN’ is a celebration of that unique light that illuminates us and makes us the individuals that we are.
Taking cues from this experience, our couture 2019 collection ‘LUMEN’ draws its inspiration from organic structures of the human body that exchange an invisible energy through an overlay of framework, fluidity and form. The framework of the garment is created with layers of our recycled polymer understructures, the fluidity comes through the illusionary movement of textiles creating forms that come to life through the intricate motifs and embroideries.
