September 21, 2020 17:54 IST

Designer Amit Aggarwal presented his latest collection online at the ongoing India Couture Week 2020.

'Couture for me, lived within the tactile experience of touch and feel. 2020 however demanded a change, and for this collection we turned to an eternal source of inspiration -- nature to lead the way,' the designer shared about the inspiration behind his latest line.

'As we experience the world through the safety of our homes, the oceans continue to churn, the wind continues to blow and the sky still holds her secrets and celebration from sunrise to twilight. Their freedom and lightness is a promise of new beginnings every moment,' Amit said in his statement ahead of the show.

Amit's Couture 2020 'depicts the weightlessness of the ocean, the caress of the wind, and the cradle of earth.'

'I think the pandemic has really got us all thinking about a higher responsibility towards our surroundings and nature. I feel nature has played a very important role in this collection," the designer added, while announcing his first digital store (external link) where the collection will be available.
