When you think of Fashion Week, two places usually come to mind, New York City and Paris. And why not? Fashion Week and Fashion has always been synonymous with New York City and Paris. But there’s another place that deserves its day in the Sunlight and that’s Amazon India Fashion Week. With a direct flight out of New York City, I found myself 14 hours and 15 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the New York City life to a very unexpected place…New Delhi…India.
Although colloquially Delhi and New Delhi as names are used interchangeably to refer to the jurisdiction of the National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi, these are two distinct entities, and the latter is a small part of the former.
The five-day fashion event that took place in New Delhi, the capital of India, came with a new address, The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. To say that Amazon India Fashion Week exceeded my expectation… Well…That would be an understatement. Amazon India Fashion Week was not merely an event you attend, it was an experience. Amazon India Fashion Week was not only about the beautiful masterpieces created by talented Fashion Designers draped on statuesque models, it was also about the beautiful masterpieces created by talented Star Chefs that sat artfully on beautiful plates.
So just in case you were wondering where all the Fashionable Foodies go for fashion and an unforgettable foodie experience during the month of March…look no further than New Delhi, India. Here on the runway of New Delhi at The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, the past and present meets to bring to life every little girls fantasy of being a goddess. Whether the models were draped in 6 yards of history in traditional sarees, or a modern twist on traditional attire, there was one thing that was quite clear…you were in India. The history and the culture of India, no matter how modern or how traditional, was very much present on the runway in every design.
And the same holds true for many of the cuisines served at the various culinary events. Just when you thought that your experience during Amazon India Fashion Week could not get any better, you were then treated to Culinary Events by Star Chefs that could only be described in one word…Phenomenal!
“Our restaurants are known throughout the country for their good food. Laughter, style and conversation weave together to form great memories at our restaurants. We are thrilled by FDCI’s gesture and are working hard to create and add value to Amazon India Fashion Week,” says veteran restaurateur AD Singh during his interview for Vogue India.
I can honestly say…in New Delhi…Everything is Fashionable. Amazon India Fashion Week is definitely an experience that every Fashionable Foodie should experience at least once in their lifetime.
