Designer duo Hemant & Nandita and Gaurav Gupta embraced a palette of colours at Amazon India Fashion Week Fall 2016.

Want to add a splash of colours to your wardrobe?

Designers Hemant & Nandita and Gaurav Gupta showed us how to experiment with colours and have fun with fashion.

Inspired by a recent trip to the mountains, husband-wife duo Hemant & Nandita's 'The Dark Enchantress' collection was truly captivating. The dense shades of red, earthy brown, midnight blue with a dash of gold, bronze and copper made each ensemble worth a second look.

Meanwhile designer Gaurav Gupta's glamourous 'Melt' collection brought our attention to climate change. An almost zero-waste collection, it looked like Gaurav draped the entire width of fabric into each outfit to cut down on waste.

Scroll down to take a look at the best designs from their shows.

The Dark Enchantress

Archana Akhil Kumar

Aishwarya Sushmita

Image: Aishwarya Sushmita looked nothing less than a valiant princess in this embroidered bomber over a pair of high-waist culottes. The chunky neckpiece and thigh high lace ups upped her style quotient.

Alesia Raut

Kanishtha Dhankar

Image: Kanishtha Dhankar's sharp pant suit -- that oozed panache -- lent a classy twist to prints.

Surelee Joseph

Image: Remember Emilia Clarke aka Khaleesi's queenly ensembles in American fantasy drama series The Game of Thrones? We found a similar structured gown with an interesting bodice donned by Surelee Joseph.

Image: And asymmetric sari gowns in fluid neoprene fabric, like this one in beige and gold were also in the spotlight.

Image: Gaurav proved it yet again that he is the king of bold, sensual and exotic style. Tell us if you disagree. 

Image: Neat lines and flowy silhouettes amplified the look of the floor scraping pleated gowns, as seen in the one above.
