SHOP AMIT AGGARWAL AT ENSEMBLE
Amit Aggarwal graduated from NIFT, New Delhi in 2002. The institute gave him a platform to showcase his collections through student competitions around the world and soon he got the opportunity to work with one of India’s top designers, Tarun Tahiliani. He then moved on to head the design team of Creative Impex, a design studio and export house, post which he launched ‘Morphe’ in 2008. All of these experiences combined led him to launch his eponymous namesake couture label in 2012 and a diffusion ready-to-wear line called AM.IT, giving him the creative freedom to find and represent his own design language that pushes conventional boundaries.
Amit Aggarwal is an important member of the Ensemble community. The designer has fond early memories of the store. “I think my relationship with Ensemble is probably my first relationship with fashion and that too I could call it love at first sight. I clearly remember it was the year 1992 when I walked into Ensemble and Tina had curated a Shahab Durazi pristine ivory jacket in the spotlight. I think that very moment the magical seed of creation got embedded into me, pushing me to pursue the path I am on. Ensemble epitomises the inception of fashion luxury retail in India,” he says. It was in 2018 that Ensemble launched a dedicated Amit Aggarwal space in their flagship store in Kala Ghoda, owing to their huge success with his unique ensembles. The space showcases his timeless masterpieces and is updated with the latest collections from the designer that are perfect for a reception, cocktail, sangeet, engagement, brunch or destination wedding.
Ensemble's merchandising team works closely with Amit Aggarwal and team to ensure the most exclusive, premium and latest collections at the best prices, both for the online shop and our 5 stores across Mumbai and Delhi.
SHOP AMIT AGGARWAL COLLECTIONS: FROM UNIQUE INDIAN WEAR TO GLAMOROUS WESTERN WEAR
As a brand, Amit Aggarwal is all about pushing the boundaries of creativity. The designer connects and celebrates ethnic culture, workmanship and traditions, evolving them through unique new methods of embroidery and textile creation. Using hand techniques, he transforms recycled industrial materials and uses them as the basis of his clothing giving garments definitive shape. This technique really pushes the envelope between traditional and modern, alluring the modern woman as well as the fashion-conscious millennial. Amit Aggarwal is one of the first couture brands to make fashion out of plastic and recyclable materials, marrying luxury and sustainability in a seamless and effective manner. His revolutionary, artistic and avant-garde silhouettes define grace, fantasy and sophistication. The label is known for its sculptural shapes and the modern aesthetic it brings.
Amit Aggarwal uses new age textiles or reinvents traditional ones and focuses on presenting modern cuts, adding an edge to the look. He has showcased this in numerous collections in the past. For exam“I enjoy taking ‘no longer usable’ products and industrial waste and breaking them down to the original raw material that was used to make them. This raw material can then be given another identity.”
Amit Aggarwal aces in mixing classic techniques with unusual materials to create his designer wear pieces. He largely uses metallic surfaces for his garments such as recycled polymer sheets, corded ruffles, recycled sequins, and metallic structuring on fabrics like organza, satin, metallic chiffons, ribbed tulles, silk, and lace creating hand-woven textures. In his collection you will see embroideries in shades of silver, dull gold, rose gold or contrast embroideries. His favourite colours are deep hues like reds, pinks, emeralds, blues and purples and soft colours like champagne tones, blush, peach, grey, beige, cream and classic ivory. And of course the quintessential black!
The label focuses on structure and architecture with dreamy and unique silhouettes. The collection ranges from haute couture and bridal wear to lighter cocktail sari gowns for festive occasions as well as a pret line of lighter, contemporary pieces. His lehengas are grand yet light, with visible workmanship that is effortlessly chic. Brides love his gowns for its exclusive designs. His draped concept saris are a great addition to your bridal trousseau whilst his modern saris make for the perfect outfit for a cocktail or an engagement event. The designer’s collection has a range of evening wear that one can only call red carpet chic with modern fashion forward ensembles that are simple yet superbly cut.
Amit Aggarwal’s womenswear collection features a variety of fusion styles such as pre-stitched draped saris, flared gowns, high-low dresses, peplum tops, structured jackets, modern lehengas, bridal cape lehengas and co-ord sets. The designer has also launched a menswear line that includes embroidered sherwanis, asymmetrical bandhgalas, embellished suits and shirts with textures and structured detailing.
