As the inaugural day of Amazon India Fashion Week unfolded, we discovered a marriage of diverse design aesthetics. The evening started with Sanjay Garg’s old world-inspired ethnic ensembles and ended with Shivan & Narresh’s uber-contemporary resort wear collection. Between the two shows, we spotted a bevy of designers showcasing gorgeous saris, easy separates, and hybrid pieces that strongly suggest that we may need a bigger wardrobe for summer.
