This festive season, Amazon Fashion has collaborated with its Grand Finale designers to bring ready-to-wear capsule lines from the finale straight to consumers. The first ever ‘See Now, Buy Now’ runway collections will be immediately available to buy during the finale, scheduled on October 15, 2017, at the recently launched The Designer Boutique at Amazon.in.
India’s top designers including Rina Dhaka, Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna, Ashish N Soni, Krishna Mehta and Pankaj & Nidhi will present their prêt-à-porter lines with six pieces each at AIFW SS18 Grand Finale. These ‘See Now, Buy Now’ capsule lines include festive ensemble across evening-wear, handcrafted in crisp silhouettes by Pankaj & Nidhi, smart-formals in textured jacquards developed in knit fabrics by Ashish N Soni, and occasion-wear collaged together from block printed, tie dyed and embroidered fabric by Krishna Mehta, every-day wear in fluid silhouettes by Rina Dhaka and wardrobe essentials in symmetrical drapes by Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna.
“It’s a transformative time for the fashion industry as we leverage technology to offer India’s first instantly shoppable runway at the finale,” said Business Head, Amazon Fashion, Arun Sirdeshmukh.
He further added, “Our See Now, Buy Now initiative allows us to shrink the gap between the experience designers create on the runway and when consumers get to explore these collections themselves. The ready-to-wear lines will be instantly available to order straight from the ramp and is part of our move to make designer wear affordable, available and accessible with the launch of The Designer Boutique at Amazon.in. We look forward to making this festive season even more exciting for our customers”.
To offer a seamless shopping experience, customers will be able to shop for Amazon Fashion’s exclusive See Now, Buy Now collections directly from Amazon.in or through Facebook and Twitter’s shoppable catalogue, Instagram Direct and Instagram carousels.
