Italian apparels, bags, umbrellas and shoes made a cut above statement at the Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) Spring- Summer 2017.

While the apparels ranged from red, blue tunics to yellow skirts to crop tops and dresses, the collections showcased on Wednesday also had dapper menswear and accessories like shoes, umbrellas and bags.

FDCI (Fashion Design Council Of India) collaborated with the Italian Trade Commission to have Italy as partner country for the 28th edition of the gala.

The umbrellas had inverted designs, unlike what we find here in India. Rather than designing the tops, the insides had different designs like flowers and peacock feathers, adding drama to the attire of the models.

Assocalzaturifici (Italian Footwear Manufacturers' Association) and Aimpes (Italian Leather goods Manufacturers' Association) showcased collection of leather goods from 41 leading Italian brands.

Francesco Pensabene, Trade Commissioner to India, Embassy of Italy, New Delhi and Sunil Sethi, President of FDCI also inaugurated the Italian Pavillion and Aperitivo.

Designers like Alberto Zambelli, Bav Tailor, Davide Grillo and Leitmotiv, selected by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (National Chamber of Italian Fashion) also had their creations showcased. AIFW is being held at the NSIC Grounds, Okhla in New Delhi, and will conclude on Sunday.
