SAMANT CHAUHAN
Runway Report
 

Once more notch for Samant Chauhan that means embracing the future with complete respect for heritage and slow fashion. There was much excitement among front row guests as they read his collection note dedicating his show to 'depicting the tradition of worshipping female energy. The collection represents purity and divine energy, also representing sixteen forms of kumari'. As the first model came out on the catwalk, we viewed her as a paragon of strength who takes charge and commands respect for handpicked, painstakingly embroidered garments rather than the object who looks pretty: a welcome time for that empowerment.

 

Samant Chauhan Fall 2015 at Amazon India Fashion Week worked on this axis — slow luxury. Opulent. Handcrafted. Classic Embellishment. The result was a stunning line-up of statement looks. The textured crop top embellished with zardozi worn over a flared, textured asymmetric skirt were just the sort of thing debutantes would love to flaunt. As were the front open satin jacket-style dress with zari embroidery and the cotton silk dress with zari hand embroidery. Romantic, with a feel of opulence. Old world and modern charm seamlessly blended and here's testament—just as with his collection last season, every look was an object of desire as he moved to formal eveningwear from the silk sari with a lavishly embroidered corset to the cotton silk draped floor-length gown with a completely embroidered top. 

 

What wowed us was the way simple silhouettes offset painstaking zari and silk thread embroideries and surface texture. Each look was majestic and this showing was about the delightful showmanship that we have come to expect from Samant Chauhan! In straight-up shoppability terms, its primed as a hot-seller, giving the designer impetus to push his creative exploration further next season.
