It’s well known that Sabyasachi is the Emperor of divine and exuberant fashion, a studious artisan who carefully seeks out inspiration from rural arts and crafts to the art historical, creating some of the most evocative and inspiring designs. Sabyasachi was chosen to kick-start Amazon India Couture Week, and he did beautifully, showcasing a collection that celebrated distinct embroideries from differing parts of India, fashion with modern cuts and fine detailing.

For AICW, Sabyasachi collaborated with the God of French shoe design Christian Louboutin, who added a gorgeous injection of Parisian panache, with a eye-catching mix of refined European classicism. The collection, which saw the marriage of two of the worlds brightest designers is Bater – one of the most common hunting birds of India and depicted dark, gothic look in the form of colours and cuts.

The set for the show resembled a rundown house, with a rustic and dilapidated feel, befitting the Gothic theme of the collection with its muted colours of gold, inky blues and black, the real injection of colour came from Christian Louboutin’s blood red shoes. Sabyasachi and Christian Louboutin were the ideal team to launch this celebration of all things couture.
