Homegrown fabrics made their presence felt on Day One at Amazon India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017.

The Amazon India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017 has just commenced.

And everyone's already going gaga over the enthralling shows that paid tribute to Indian textiles.

First up was 'The Road To Chanderi' that brought top designers -- Anita Dongre, Aneeth Arora, Ragini Ahuja, Yogesh, Payal Pratap, Karishma Shahani Khan, Ruchika, Gaurav J Gupta, Atsu Sekhose, Divyam Mehta, Joy Mitra,  Paromita Banerjee and Pratima Pandey -- together on the same platform.

Meanwhile ace designer Krishna Mehta's collection 'Curious Alice' showcased unconventional silhouettes in Maheshwari.

Take a look at the gorgeous collection.
